Bao Lac is one of the points on the north loop including Ha Giang, Meo Vac, and Cao Bang. The best time to visit Bao Lac is from March to May and from August to November when it has pleasant weather and less rainfall. The most convenient and comfortable way to get to Bao Lac from Hanoi is by private car as you can make optional stops along the way to take photos of amazing scenery and try some local food. Additionally, adventure tourists can easily rent a motorbike to reach the region but ensure your safety first as the mountainous terrain is steep, slippery, and sometimes foggy all day.
