The Way to Ta Phin Village

After a short rest at Sapa town, we continued to drive to Ta Phin Village. On the way, I asked this guy for the way to Ta Phin village, didn't notice that he was actually holding a snake.

To get to Ta Phin village we followed the road to Lao Cai, that leaded us to the awesome view of Sapa valley.

Much of the valley is been cultivated as verdant rice paddy field.

To get to Ta Phin village, follow the major road to Lao Cai. After about 5 km down the valley, we came to the first T-junction in sight. This is the turning to Ta Phin village. The junction was easily recognizable as they're few shops beside it, and it was the first side road after a long winding down road. After the turning, it was another long drive along a very narrow path.

My travelmates & myself placed Sapa trek as one of the best of our North Vietnam trip. The trekking was easy and we stayed 2 nights with the local tribes - Dzay & Tay tribes. The homestay was memorable as we go back to basic vs our city life. Balancing ourselves on rice terraces were also interesting and we made sure we don't fall into the muddy field. Bathing in the freezing waterfall is fun. The Sapa trek leaves us with lots of good memories.
