"I recently took a 4-day trip to Sapa, Vietnam and it was an unforgettable experience! The scenery was breathtaking with the mountains, rice terraces, and waterfalls. The local ethnic minority people were friendly and welcoming, and I enjoyed learning about their culture and way of life. Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. The food was delicious, especially the local specialties like grilled meat and sticky rice. The accommodations were comfortable and clean, with stunning views from our window."

"I bought a lot of souvenirs because there were a lot of different cute things, I bought some cute stuffed animals made by local people with unique decorative seams. In the market I found a necklace with the pendant is a grain of rice engraved my name. I watched all the process of making it, so ingenious. The weather was not really good so I couldn't visit Fansipan peak, but this was enough for a great trip. The traditional costume are colorful and unique, I tried it.  The best thing was enjoying the delicious grilled skewer foodstall in the rain."

Thanks for a great trip

"The scenery on the Fansipan was so incredible, we immersed in the cloud and the wind was a little bitb strong so it was difficult to stand next to the railing. When coming to the top of Fansipan it was rainy and we had to wear raincoat but it was clean and no more rainy on the top of Fansipan. There were a lot of children sell souvenir in Sapa, they are very small and young, some of them can speak English, so cute and smart but they seemed poor Thanks to our tour guide, you r so friendly!"

"Unluckily the weather was not really good so we can't enjoy the sky from Fansipan. The children in Sapa were cute but a little bit weird, they followed me the whole way after i bought a souvenir from one of them We tried the colorful traditional costumes and they were heavier than I thought, but they r beautiful and not difficult to wear.  Natural scenery here was so beautiful and majestic, love it"
