The Muong Khuong Market is a large market about a 2-hour drive from Sapa.  It is visited by a wide range of ethnic groups: (several different) Hmong, Dao, Nung, and merchants from other ethnic groups; some of whom come over mountain trails across the nearby border with China to sell their products. Several Pa Zi women sell traditional incense made from the bark and resin of scented trees.

After we left the market, we stopped in at a local restaurant to grab some lunch and happened to be sitting next to a bus load of local tourists who were hitting the bottle pretty hard...but with a good attitude.
