EXPERIENCE LOVE MARKET & TREKKING TO TA VAN VILLAGE 3D2N BY TRAIN
The northwest market town of Sapa is colorful and charming, providing the perfect oasis in the midst of a strenuous mountain trek or rice-paddy tour. The Gothic stone church at the center of town is a bull’s-eye in the center of shops and stalls, serving as a reminder of the town’s French missionary influence. Dine on Vietnamese or European-inspired cuisine downtown, and don’t miss the Saturday night "love market", one of the most potent—and strictest—single’s nights imaginable.
Sa Pa is a town in the Hoàng Liên Son Mountains of northwest Vietnam. Popular with trekkers, it overlooks the terraced rice fields of the Muong Hoa Valley, and is near the 3,143m-tall Fan Si Pan peak, climbable via a steep, multiday guided walk. H’mong, Tay and Dao hill tribes make up much of the local population.
Bac Ha is a famous mountainous regional market in the Northwest taken place every Sunday. Bac Ha Market is the place for exchanging traditional products and culture.
