If there is a place you should not miss in Vietnam it is Sapa, a small town in the NW area of the country. Located in a beautiful valley itis the village to see the Za and Hmnog tribes who live nearby and yet another place where nature will make you droll once more.
This time I have participated as a guest blogger in www.vietnamandcambodia.com; to read my post please click here http://www.vietnamandcambodia.com/2009/09/chmong-buy-from-me.html . However I have saved the best for my own blog- I strongly suggest you don’t miss the following slideshow because it contains some of the best pictures I have taken during this trip. Enjoy, comment and happy travels!
Hi there, do you recommend doing a tour from Hanoi? Can you rent the scooters from Sapa? Thanks for your help, really enjoying reading your blogs 🙂
Hi there! I do recommend you book your tour to Sapa from Hanoi, and yes, it is very very easy to rent scooters in Sapa. As usual, simply bargain a little bit and you will get good deals. There is a trail in the outskirts that I found fascinating (most of the good Sapa pics in my site were taken there) thus feel free to ask about it!
beautiful photos, where do I go if I want to purchase some prints?
Thanks for the enquiry Gaosheng. I have replied via email.
Very nice photos!
We were also there for around 4 days. The first 3 days were completely foggy & very cold! But the last day the sun got out & we were also able to see the mountains around us! 🙂
Thanks! Sapa was one of my favourite places of my 10 month trip, certainly in the top 5. I was told that in winter there is snow in the mountains sometimes! It is such a nice a place…specially when there is no fog!
muchas gracias…a ver si consigo que vengan mas lectores poco a poco! La verdad es que vietnam dio muy bonitas fotos…
