    We trek the area in February 2017. We had a great time even if it was 15 degrees with very light rain. The visibility was not perfect either but still, it was well worth it to walk the little trails. ...  more »

    Great visit, the rice fields were beautiful and it was excellent to see the contrast of lifestyles throughout the village.  more »

    Views essential when we visit the mountains of northern Viet Nam. See when the rice paddies are planted but it's so rainy period... When the weather is a little more favourable, the terraces are not necessarily planted and so not very pretty.

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.
