Travel to Sapa,Vietnam

If you want a place of cultural authenticity and natural tranquility, you have found the right place. Sapa is a mountainous town in North Vietnam where you write poem, have your cameras on for most of your time, cheer over a community wine pot, learn to appreciate indigenous culture or just to escape Hanoi heat and city noise.
Most tourists arrive in Lao Cai, the province to which Sapa belongs, by train and it is definitely an impressive ride. The train leaves Hanoi in the evening and arrives in Lao Cai train station in early morning. From Lao Cai train station to Sapa is another hour bus ride, which gives your eyes a massage with the endless blue sky and colourful terraced paddy field. The road is curved around the mountain and you will just go from one surprise to another. The further you go, the closer you are to the sky and to nature.

Sapa tours is a great place for trekking and adventure biking. The special type of terrace in Sapa allows many physical tourism activities besides the scenic landscape. For those who are really keen, Fansipan is the highest mount in Indochina. At 3143 meters, you will need a tour group to climb on top. On exchange, you can be proud of yourself for reaching the roof of Vietnam Travel.

If you are more into culture stuff, do not miss the home-stay tour which lets you stay with local ethnic minorities. You can lengthen your trip with more meaningful activities, such as learning to make handicrafts or helping the local with farm work! In case time does not allow, you can always hire a local guide for your trekking routes. Chances are these boys and girls will tell you lovely stories about their traditions, their lives or even ask you to join their family activities.

Sapa is such a colourful town thanks to the H'mong and Dzao people from the local hill tribes who head into the town's market every day to trade their produce. There's a main market every Saturday when the place is packed but there's a lower key one every other day during the week. These people will have undergone no formal education but the arrival of foreigners has made them well aware of the value of money and many of the youngsters have picked up a basic level of English. They sell clothing and handicrafts which are popular with tourists.
