Hmong girls in Sapa, Vietnam

Sapa is a town in northwest Vietnam. It is one of the main market towns in the area, where several ethnic minority groups such as Hmong, Dao (Yao), Giay, Pho Lu, and Tay live.

Stamp shows dan hoong, a traditional musical instrument. It is a large bossed gong of the Mnong people of central Vietnam. It is tuned by means of pegs, hit at the sides, forcing an inner frame against the membrane and thus tightening it and raising the pitch [source: Wikipedia]
