Welcome to Ha Giang
Ha Giang is somewhere to recharge the batteries on the long road north. This surprisingly large town, bisected by the broad Lo River, is a provincial capital with clean streets and an understated ambience. The main drag is P Nguyen Trai, which runs north–south paralleling the west bank of the Lo for 3km or so. You’ll find hotels, banks and restaurants on this road.
There is little to keep you in town itself, but the spectacular limestone outcrops soaring skywards over the suburbs hint at the amazing scenery in the surrounding hinterland.
