Impressive animal market in Lao Cai Vietnam

For tourists in Vietnam Travel want to know more about Vietnam culture and the ethnic minority, local markets are very attractive, especially those in highland provinces.

Local markets in the northwestern province of Lao Cai are places not only for selling local produce, but also to trade animals.

Apart from the famous Bac Ha Horse Market or Can Cau Buffalo Market, a number of other local markets trade in smaller animals, such as chickens, pigs, dogs and cats.

Locals often bring their livestock to these markets when they are in need of money or some other essential good.

Others just go to look around, meet friends or drink wine. They might bring along a dog or a chicken to pay for it.

Pigs and chickens in this region are generally corn-fed, making them better quality livestock.
