Shy Hmong girls

The second part of our trip through Vietnam led us to the Sapa mountains, northwest of Hanoi. These mountains are mainly famous for the large number of different ethnic minorities - among them various groups of Hmong - who still live in a very traditional way, despite the growing numbers of tourists. We were lucky enough to be able to go to the village of Bac Ha on a sunday, were literally hundreds of beautifully dressed Flower Hmong are holding and visiting the local market. This place was photographers' heaven, and luckily it was one of the few sunny days of our trip, so the colors of their dresses were really shining.
