Through Lily’s Travel Agency, we had a sleeper bus to Sapa, famous for its hundreds of ethnic minorities which is truly a memorable learning experience. We are also awed for the vast green tea and marijuana plantations (note: for the marijuana plant, they do not smoke it but just use it as a fabric).
Here are our 5 Highlights of our Sa Pa Hike in Vietnam!
She has been our guide for our three days hike in Vietnam. She taught us how to make the indigo dye; she lent me their Black Hmong costume, and taught everything that we should know to survive in the mountains. She knows a lot (although she cannot read nor write)
She has been following us on our hike, trying to sell her products. I admire this woman because she could have been a great artist with all those designs she has weaved. I am very remorseful that I tried to ask for very much lower price to have this green bag.
I woke up in our dorm seeing this wonderful view!
4.) Arashiyama-like bamboo grove in the mountains
That’s me wearing the Black Hmong costume, blending with this Arashiyama-like bamboo grove here in the Sa Pa mountains!
5.) International Friends
We have been so close that this girl pictured my big butt in this hike!
