  Rice fields near Sapa
by windsorgirl

The scenery surrounding the town of Sapa is breathtaking. The terraced rice fields are an amazing sight even before the rice sprouts, as it was when I was there. There are many easy walks to do leaving from Sapa, you can hire a guide and stay overnight with a local family if you like.

Directions: Sapa is located 250kms north of Hanoi in the Hoang Lien Mountains. The best way to get here is by overnight train.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
