Travel to Meo Vac - Ha Giang

Meo Vac can be visited anytime in a year. However, the months from late October to December are especially the ideal time for fans of the flower blooming. From Hanoi, the most convenient way to reach this mountainous area is by private car which allows you to stop anytime you want along the road. Riding a motorbike to Meo Vac is a choice for adventure travelers but it is not recommended if this is your very first time in Vietnam as the bumpy and steep road in the mountain is difficult for non-usual drivers to control safety. The trip to Meo Vac can be conveniently combined with visiting Ma Pi Leng Pass, Dong Van stone plateau, Lung Cam village, Lo Lo Ethnic Village, and Quan Ba Twin Mountain.
