Ta Phin Village, Sapa

4.0
#4 of 13 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.

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.
