Do I really need a permit to visit Ha Giang?
Yes. As Vietnam’s “final frontier”, travel and immigration to Ha Giang is strictly controlled in order to preserve and protect the nature and people who live there. Failure to obtain a travel permit before visiting or on arrival is punishable by law and can result in an escort out of the province or confiscation of your motorbike. Many hostels, hotels and homestays also require the permit in addition to your passport when checking in.
