XVII – Heiko goes Sapa

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.

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…
