Ta Phin Village, Sapa

3.9
#4 of 17 in Neighborhoods in Vietnam
At Ta Phin Village, tucked away amid green mountains and rice fields, explore the wonders of the Red Dao and H'Mong native communities, untouched by civilization and mass tourism. The Chinese origins of the communities influenced their distinct cultures, dances, and the red turbans which they still wear. Stroll around the village and browse through handmade clothes and bags, decorated with bright colors and patterns. Rent a private room in a village house and immerse yourself in the culture. Don’t miss the chance to try a famous herbal bath, and if you’re lucky, you might witness a wedding ceremony or dancing festivals. The pristine valley and mountains offer plenty of options for trekking, too.

  • Great tour leader and very fascinating village to walk and learn of the culture and the hemp they make into fabric. They also dye them from local grown plants.  more »
  • It is a steep village 8 kms from Sapa. There are wonderful landscapes to see winter as summer. I highly recommend.
