Friday Postcard: Rice Hills in Sapa

Jennifer from Girl Gone Galavanting gives us this gorgeous postcard from Vietnam.

Located in Vietnam’s far northwest corner, the small town of Sapa offers breathtaking views of lush, green rice terraces as far as the eye can see. Visitors can relax with a cup of Vietnamese coffee overlooking the valley or spend the day trekking through the hills to visit the local tribes. A truly magically place and a must for anyone journeying through Vietnam.

    Ahhh! I loved Sapa! I did a 2 day trek through the hillside and the landscapes were just as magnificent as what you see in the photo. 🙂

    Nice photo’s of Sapa. Visited last year. If you plan your arrival in northern Vietnam correctly you can stay in the same plaza where the train station is in Lao Cai for much cheaper than Sapa ($10-12). Rent a moto for $5-7 per day and drive out to Bac Ha for the Sunday Market on Sunday and then take another day and drive up to Sapa and come back to Lao Cai. I didn’t do a trek but found all the ethnic Hill Tribe interaction I could have ever wanted at the Bac Ha Sunday Market.
