Sa Pa Favorites: 18 reviews and 51 photos
Favorite thing: Was a bit surprised when a Vietnamese from Hanoi at a hotel up in Sapa was "badmouthing" the local Hmongs. Apparently there is an element of mistrust between the groups. It was said that the many of the hill tribes had sided with the French against the Vietnamese. But that was history.
Out of the over Vietnam's 70 million population, 6-7 millions are from over 54 ethnic groups.
Ethnic minority groups with members numbering upwards of 500,000 include the Tay (Tho), Tai (Thai), Hmong (Meo or Miao), Muong (Mol) and Nung.
