Sapa and Bac Ha in Style

Sapa and Bac Ha in Style

High in the mountains of Northwest Vietnam, Sapa is home to a variety of ethnic minorities living in remote villages. This former French hill station offers excellent trekking opportunities and cultural insights. Just before the harvest season, the hillside terraces are adorned in infinite shades of green. In winter, the fog rolls in, and Sapa becomes a romantic, mist-shrouded retreat, perfect for cosy nights around the fireplace. This journey will also take you to the traditional Sunday Market of Bac Ha, where the ethnically diverse people of the region gather to sell their handmade clothes and other handicrafts.

Important note: This Sapa and Bac Ha In style program must depart Thursday or Friday and return on Sunday or Monday by Chapa Express Train.
