April 27, 2010 - Sa Pa, Vietnam
Just got back from Sapa! To be honest, I didn’t even really know what was in Sapa, I was just told that I had to go to Halong Bay and Sapa, so I booked tours for both places on my second day in Vietnam. I now know why it is a must see though—it is beautiful! It is in a valley of some huge mountains and there are quaint little villages and hundreds of rice patties everywhere. Amazing to see! The beginning of my tour started off HORRIBLY though. I just came from my super fun Halong Bay...

August 15, 2009 - Sa Pa, Vietnam
After a relaxing couple of days on the boat in Ha Long Bay, we headed up into the mountains to the west of Hanoi to visit some minority villages around the former French retreat of Sapa.  The surrounding area is home to several ethnic minorities, including the H'mong, Dao and Tay.  We got to Sapa from Hanoi via an overnight train (shared with two other Brits and a Swiss also from our hostel, interestingly enough...), arriving in Lao Cai (a neighbouring town) at about 5.30 in the morning....

Trekking in Sapa
June 6, 2009 - Sa Pa, Vietnam
The same day that I got back from Halong Bay I left for a trekking tour in Sapa (time is short for me now). There were no tickets left on the overnight train so two other English guys (James and Ross) and myself had to take a bus instead. The bus itself was ok but the fact that we had to sit through 2 hours of some Vietnamese music videos of the SAME girl every time, singing cheesy love songs and reminiscing about her boyfriend, with each video being VERY VERY VERY slightly different from the...

March 19, 2009 - Sa Pa, Vietnam
Just a couple of hours after returning from our biking tour, we were on the road again, this time heading for Sapa in northwestern Vietnam for a couple of days of hill country trekking. We grabbed some baguette sandwiches from a little family bakery, then boarded the night train at Hanoi station. The kids were very excited to be sleeping on a train again, and this time we had our own cozy four-bunk compartment and the train left right on time at 9pm, so we all got a very good night's sleep....

Le nord du Vietnam et ses montagnes, c’est Sapa!
November 24, 2008 - Sa Pa, Vietnam
A Sapa c’est le royaume de ethnies minoritaires montagnardes, comme nous le constatons des notre arrivée dans le centre de la petite ville. Grosse dominance de H’mong Noirs mais aussi quelques H’mong Fleurs, des Dao Rouges et des Giay. C’est dimanche et aujourd’hui plus que tous les autres jours le marché bat son plein. On voit bien que ce n’est pas uniquement pour le bénef’ des touristes puisque tout un tas de petites dames (elles mesurent en général 1m50 a tout casser)...
