Sapa travel guide

Everything you need to know

Sapa is a village in the northwest of Vietnam. Decades ago this was still a quiet area where mostly hill tribes lived. They are still there, only by the largely improved infrastructure there are now a lot more tourists. The village, about 350 kilometers from Hanoi, lies in a valley in the Hoang Lien Mountains. A gorgeous region of rice fields, abutting mountains, quaint villages and greenery. Sapa is the ideal base to explore this beautiful region. You can do a great trekking through the villages and along the special rice terraces. After your trek you sleep in a homestay, with these ethnic minorities at home.
