Visit the rural Sapa region filled with postcard-perfect terraced rice paddies.
Rice is great with curry and soy sauce, but it’s not only a delicious food. The traditional ways people grow it are also beautiful to behold, and nowhere is it more stunning than in Sapa, Vietnam. Ostentatiously gorgeous mountains drop down into deep, river-run valleys. Glistening, terraced paddies consume your entire field of vision. And waves of clouds gently shroud lovely little villages. When you take this trip, you trek through the postcard-perfect rice paddies with a guide and move in with the locals for a night in a traditional homestay. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your saucy Vietnam adventure!
We spend 4 days exploring Vietnam. We visit Hanoi, Sapa Valley.
