Whether you travel alone or with a group, you will not get stuck on the way to Sa Pa. It’s a long trip, so taking a night train will save you much time. It will be really a great experience to travel by train in Asia, but you should pay attention to your luggage when sleeping on the train.
Strolling around Sa Pa Town
It just takes you a few hours to walk around this small town.
Let’s start your journey from the town center. Sa Pa is peaceful, beautiful, and somewhat like Hanoi due to old buildings built in the French colonial period.
Discover the cultural life of the ethnic minorities
Sa Pa is home to several ethnic minorities, but most of them are H’mong people. When coming here, ethnic women will go with you and introduce you brocade items that they make by themselves. Especially, you can easily communicate with them in English, which give you a good opportunity to explore the culture and life of the local people.
In addition, children in Sa Pa will also impress you. Despite the age of seven, they have to work to support their families. If you come across a child selling handmade souvenirs, buy one instead of giving them some sweets.
