Pa Co Market is about 40km to the north of Mai Chau town, in the middle of the center of three communes namely Hang Kia, Pa Co (Mai Chau), and Loong Luong (Moc Chau, Son La). It is only held on Sundays. As the whole valley is still shrouded in thick dawn mist, the ethnic minorities rush to the market, according to VOV.
