How Quyet Tien Market Is Unique?

The upland market always has a strange attraction, it is not massive with stalls like lowland markets or in big cities. Quyet Tien Market is a simple rustic place, right at the foot of Quan Ba Heaven gate towering all year round of fog and cloud cover. A place where young people in the plains like us can learn more about the customs and practices of the ethnic minorities. If you love the beauty of Meo Vac, Xin Man, Khau Vai markets, you will definitely love Quyet Tien Market.
