Here you will find no welcome mats or rehearsed "Cultural" parades, just real people living real lives who greet visitors with genuine warmth and real smiles.

100 km from Sapa, Bac Ha - a small town built on a desolated highland is well-known for the century-old colorful markets of the real mountainous people including the Dzao and the Flower- H'Mong. They and the mountains seem to fall in a sleep and time stands still until Sunday mornings when the markets occur. All the young boys and girls wear their most beautiful clothes and go to the market.

The paradise of Orchids

The paradise of Orchids
The orchid is a kind of parasitic plant living on tree barks in humid forests. It gets food from the moss, and nitrogen and minerals from the air. Orchids are especially diversified in species, shapes and colors. According to the 1987 findings of a researcher, A. L. Takhtajan, there are about 750 species of Orchids, with about 25,000 families in the world, from Mexico to India and the Islands of the Pacific Ocean. Botanists treat orchids as the most beautiful and colorful flowers. Only the delicate combination of colors on butterfly wings can compete with vivid hues of orchids. In addition, orchids give out a very special sweet and pleasant fragrance.

Although grown in the wilderness, orchids are “hard to please” Each type of orchid requires a certain kind of moss, humidity and sunshine. Perhaps because of the diversified species, colors and fragrance and the difficulties encountered to plant and care for them, all those who love flowers are in love with orchids. But only those with a special knowledge on orchids and a particular frame of mind can grow them successfully. Given its primitive forests that stretch over mountains of different heights and a diversified eco-environment, Hoang Lien Son in general and Sapa in particular is a paradise for orchids. From March to June, Orchids blossom everywhere in the forests and along rivers. Their fragrance fills the air. In fact, they also grow in the primitive forests of Viet Bac, the Truong Son range of mountain and in other forest covers in Vietnam. Before the 1960 orchids were a mysterious kind of flower that lowlanders seldom saw and in Hanoi few people knew how to plant and care for them.

Sapa – The destination of the winter

The endless green of the tropical forests, yellow of the harvest-ready rice terraces, white of the snow and morning fog... are just some to mention for the miracle spectrum of Sapa.

Situated 1600 metters high from the ground of North-west Vietnam, the town is a urban district of Lao Cai province. Its scenery is a wonderful combination of mountains, forests, snow and the constructing hands of the local people. The name Sapa as it had today originated from the Chinese term “Sa-Pả” – Sand field, as before the contruction of the town, the place was a sand field where local peole gather and trade for their living. After time and the colonization of France in the first half of 20th century, the name was enventually changed to its known form today.

And now, to make your trip to Sapa an great enlightenment, I’s like to make a short list of 5 must-go destinations in my opinion.

1. Fansipan – The roof of Indo-China
In the center of Hoang Lien Son range lay the highest mountain in south east Asia, the 3143-metter Fansipan. Despite its proximity to the town, about 9 km to the South-west, an average man should spent 6 to 7 days in order to reach the top of the mountain. Unlike other famous mountains like Mt. Everest, the Fansipan is covered with tropical forest, which make the trip much harder, but also promise far more wildlife sightings. Climber can go on an individual trip or tours with the guidance of local tribe men.
