Rice Terraces

Sapa, Vietnam

Overlooking the terraced valley of plunging rice fields, Sapa is the most popular destination in northwest Vietnam. Located in the Hoang Lien Son Mountains, it was established as a hill station by the French in 1922. Nowadays, the city boasts an eclectic mélange of architectural designs. While the splendid views of the rice fields draw a crowd, make sure not to miss local experiences such as a visit to the Sapa markets, where the people of the H’mong tribe sell handicrafts and ethnic clothing.
