  • Doing batik with Mimi was so incredible, it took me 3 and a half hours because I was slow (usually it should take about 2 I think) but Mimi was so patient and a great teacher. I loved the end result a...  more »
  • We wanted to get an idea of the price of local crafts because we were constantly slips in the street without knowing if products come many local crafts and negotiate what price to be fair without getting. The shop displays all prices and we also fell for many articles, this has allowed us to have a vision for our future purchases. The Manager was very friendly.

  • Cat cat village shop is run by her daughter, get half his mom, ' Mimi ' grandmother. I visited there was a place in the Taban village, from there to the attractive ' Mimi ' grandmother, learned the Batik dye. I noticed a washable, light like a butterfly action luck Mimi Granny is an interesting English-speaking Pidgin is a genius. Due to the bright expression and aggressive representation, I'm a good student ' in there ' was with plenty of praise. Black Hmong embroidery and dyeing of agar brought from there to create goods into the sewing machine. The beautiful and sassy charm of ' Mimi ' Granny visit there in view of the participation in the workshop.

  • As great as it was two years ago, when I stayed here for one week. I really recommend this hotel if you stay in Sa Pa. It's got the best views of Cat Cat village, and it's two blocks away from Sa Pa main square. The rates are low and a delicious breakfast is included in the rate. They can help you plan treks, tours around villages, home stays, find a tour guide, etc. The only thing that could improve is the wifi network - important if you're working remotely for a few days. Not important if you're here for disconnecting and relaxing, which is what you should REALLY do if you come to Sa Pa. .

Where to stay in Sapa

As the primary city to look for accommodations in the northwest, Sapa possesses a wealth of choices to suit a range of tastes and budgets. The main urban area offers a large number of standard hotels, hostels, and guesthouses, with views of the surrounding hills among the biggest brags in town. Some luxury options lie within the confines of the town, offering spa facilities and onsite restaurants. Out among the rice terraces lie a number of pristine resorts and the odd eco-friendly lodge or rental villa.
