Although the village can no longer be considered as 'authentic', as you need to pay an entrance fee, and the village seems to be a shopping mall; I loved the hike, the views, the colors, the smart water supply system and the animals running around. It's a short walk out of Sa Pa; not to miss! There's a waterfall as well. Another disturbing factor is a caged monkey at the road entry which leads to the village. Please set the monkey free or treat it as it should be.
