Featuring colorful hill tribe minorities, a myriad of trekking opportunities and set amongst stunning mountain scenery, Sapa is unlike anywhere else in Vietnam. To experience Sapa, travel north from Hanoi on the beautifully refurbished train and arrive in the former French hill station early the next morning. Over the next few days soak up the mountain air, explore local markets and visit colorful hill tribe villages. Whilst in Sapa stay at the Victoria Sapa Resort featuring beautiful sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Layer upon layer of green ridges fade into the distance, edged by sharp, rocky peaks. The region is home to several ethnic minority groups, all wearing their traditional and colorful attire.  The night train is good experience, but it is not comfortable as the Hotel room.
