Arriving in Sapa early in the morning, after taking the night train from Hanoi (quite comfy – I was positively surprised).
Probably my very best experience in Vietnam so far and it should stay one of the top highlights of my trip. 2 days trekking tour with local Hmong women – staying over night with a Hmong family. This tour was so impressive and definately worth to do it!
Where are all the tourists everyone was talking about ? We saw a fantastic landscape & lots of children & various animals…..but on the 2nd day of our trek not one single other foreigner! Woohoo.
Lunch time & some creative art work…
Sunset – and we arrived at our accomodation right in time to have a fantastic herbal bath right before dinner….btw at Sorrel, if you ever read this…..still waiting for you to sending me the herbal bath pic….I will leave an empty space here in the blog to add it 😛
Starting into the 2nd day…..with our lovely little group…
I somehow tried to draw in the trek we made onto a map.
Sapa – Street impressions
Very interesting architecture. A lot of houses in Sapa have only made their „faces“; it seems like the rest will be forever under construction.
Still on my walk to find the local new market…
Sapa – New Market
Hidden, but i found it…..lots of locals there, nearly no tourists.
Street impressions – Hmong women.
Sapa train station, Leaving Sapa – I should meet those lovely ladies by luck later again 😉
