Sapa- Lao Chai-Ta Van-Giang Ta Chai 3 nights 2 days
- Duration:3 nights 2 days
- Destinations: Sapa
If one is looking for a unique place that cannot be found anywhere else in Vietnam, Sapa is just the right choice. Though Vietnam is known for its beach landscape with luxury resort, the mountainous area is no less charming. Resides at an elevation of 1,600 meters above the sea level, Sapa is a mountainous district in the northwest of Vietnam, located about 38 km from Lao Cai City and 376 km from Ha Noi – the capital city of Vietnam. Sapa is not a place to look at on pictures – once you come, you will see how reality is even more picturesque than the polished photos. From the terraced rice field to the exciting ethnic lives, from the cool climate to the colorful trek, Sapa is a must-see, must-go and must-experience. After 9 hour train ride, which you can twist easily with a sound sleep, and another scenic 60 minute bus crawl, you will get to the mountain town of Sapa. Hotels are abundant, as Sapa became a tourist attraction as early as the beginning of 20th century. If you do not feel too rush to get some quick rest, a walk around town at this time of the day is just magnificent. The crowd is not yet out while you can inhale the freshness of early morning air. Sapa is best seen on foot: book a trekking tour or just wander around the town yourself if you are not too interested in vigorous activities. Come at the right time (September – October) and you can catch the green-turn-yellow horizon of rice fields. At other time of the year, such as wintertime, expect a mysterious foggy scene that is just as charming. Sapa is as famous for its people as for its nature. However, ask for permission before you take photos of the ethnic group. The life of Dzao, Hmong and other ethnic has much change yet many still retains its unique trait – enjoy a new lifestyle that is quite dramatically different from the lower land.
