Our time in Sapa, Vietnam (video)

After a few days in Hanoi, We were very excited to head up north to check out the town of Sapa, Vietnam. We were told by many people that it was the best part of their trip and not to miss it.

Sapa, Vietnam

We discovered that Sapa was a sleepy mountain town that was super chilled out.

After leaving Nepal (Check out our video on Nepal) we already missed the mountain air and laid back way of life and Sapa was very similar. It ended up being our favourite place we travelled to while in Vietnam.

If we make it back to Vietnam we will be sure to return. Thank you so much to The Arkells for letting us use their amazing song!!!

  2. Ah, heading there in just over a week! I’m looking forward to doing a bit of trekking and exploring the countryside. Vietnam has been such an amazing country so far. I don’t want to leave!

      Audrey, You will love Sapa. After the hectic city of Hanoi we got to Sapa and just relaxed.
      It will be a nice change of pace from the rest of Vietnam.

    After reading this I must go! We head to Vietnam tomorrow, were you there in March? How was weather?

      Hey Hannah, We were in Sapa in may and the weather was nice. A little cool at night and perfect during the day.
      We can’t say enough good things about that place. Was our fave in Vietnam. Enjoy!!

    Sapa was the best part of my trip in Vietnam. The people were much more friendly then the rest of the country. The hill tribe ladies were so much fun when they were trying to sell you stuff.

      We agree with you Mischa. We found Sapa to be the friendliest place as well and the hill tribe ladies were a blast. We would love to go back one day.
