... the villages of the six local minorities including the black Hmong. The town is a hustle bustle of local ladies selling fruit and veg from their land many kilometers away, small stalls selling local trinkets and handicrafts and hundreds of shops selling counterfeit hiking gear and sports wear from China. For two days Guian (from Sapa Sisters) was our amazingly cheery and informative guide as we meandered our way across the ...

Sickness in Sapa

... of the train, forwards and back, side to side, had sloshed my stomach around too much. Maybe I was a bit heat exhausted from the day, or maybe the spring rolls I had for dinner didn't agree with me. The whole trip was just terrible. I couldn't lay down. Every time I did I wanted to get sick again. I ended up finding a seating fetal position that made me carry through the final 6 hours of my trip. When I finally made it to Sapa I was a ...

Sapa and Hmong Culture

... to be able to arrange a guide directly - whilst trekking we discovered that if you book a guide as part of a tour group, the local Hmong guides only receive a small proportion of the overall cost (often less than 10%); seeing so many tour groups go past during our time there, it felt like the newly built hotels were slightly exploiting the local community; hopefully as Sapa becomes more widely visited, tourists will learn to contact guides directly instead of being reliant upon the ...

The mountain town of Sapa

After meeting our new guide, the diminutive Ms Mee, we were driven the 40Km up winding mountain roads to Sapa - which was not a highlight for Jani. The hotel helpfully allowed us to check in early and still served us a breakfast.
Mee took us to see the local market and some villages of the native Hmong people. A short hike down the valley took us to the spectacular Cat Cat waterfalls which we were probably fortunate to see ...

Quietly tucked away off the main street in Sapa, the Chau Long Hotel is the perfect little getaway from the madness of big cities. We stayed here for just one night on our extensive trip of Northern Vietnam, but oh, wish we would have stayed longer. The hotel is incredibly picturesque and the view of the mountains from our very spacious balcony was phenomenal. We absolutely loved the fresh extra towels that magically appeared later in the day after a long day of trekking. The staff is gracious and attentive, and the Western-style breakfast was substantial.
The indoor pool and guest services room (complete with internet access and billiards table) was great...the photography decorating the halls and public places is a really nice touch - and extra bonus: you can purchase it! Although there are lots of options of where to stay to choose from in town, we will definitely be back for a longer stay in the spring 2013.
