Stunning mountains, gushing waterfalls, and very nice people. Who could ask for more?
High in the mountains of Northern Vietnam is a town called Sapa. If you take a trip to Vietnam, everyone you meet will tell you to go there. You should listen! Not only is it gorgeous, but just out side of town (in the neghboring village of Ta Van) is one of the best places I have ever stayed.
Finding a home away from home.
You have to take a cab from the center of town to get there, and the roads can be daunting. But once you make the trek, you will find a cozy homestay, filled with great food, amazing people and an incredible view. Not only that, you will be perfectly positioned to go trekking into the indigenous villages.
But that is just the beginning.
