Dong Van town is set in a little plateau in the mountains, very close to the Chinese border. Several different H’mong people walk or motorbike several kilometres early Sunday mornings to trade, barter and purchase their weekly supplies. It is also a place to eat, drink and socialize with each other once a week. Most H’mong live in very small communities hidden in the jagged rocky landscape, undetectable to westerners like us. Fortunately they found us extremely uninteresting so I was free to just observe and photograph from a distance.
The following photos are from the Sunday morning market.
