“Sapa was at the top of my list of places to see during my visit to Vietnam. I wanted to see the stunning landscape with the terraced rice paddies and I also wanted to trek from Sapa to Ta Van. Much to my surprise, trekking was the highlight of my trip because I not only got to see the rice paddies, but I got to travel along the route with 3 of Sapa’s knowledgeable tour guides. These three women are members of the Black Hmong ethnic group and they shared, with me, some of their experiences along with their family stories. I will always treasure the time I spent with these wonderful women.” See more.
