Ha Giang’s weather at the beginning of the year is quite good, warmer than the last days of the year, so you can take beautiful pictures at any time of the day. However, the ideal is still early in the morning, when the flowers have just bloomed, still fresh and the petals are covered with morning dew.

Pho Bang town, about 40 km from Lung Cu, is a destination for flower lovers among the mountains. After taking pictures of flowers, visitors can walk in the town, chat with locals, and admire the peaceful scenery.
