Vietnam: weekly market attracts minorities from the culturally diverse north

The mountains of northern Vietnam are home to a number of indigenous minority groups, including the H'mong. Each week, many people in the region trek through the mountains to the Kermis market in Lao Cai province to buy and sell goods. In this photo, a H'mong woman gives her child a treat after returning from the market to her village in neighbouring Ha Giang province.
