Bask in the green rice terraces of Muong Hoa Valley

No trip to Sapa is complete without treading on the bright green rice terraces – a manifestation of the livelihood of the Sapa hill tribes who are heavily dependent on rice cultivation. If mountain treks are over-taxing and arduous for you, then a trek along the rice terraces of Muong Hoa Valley is perfect!
 
The trekking never ends in Sapa, doesn’t it? Well, another alternative to the onerous mountain hikes would be a visit to the Cat Cat Village. While you are likely to experience a very long walk with numerous steps, it is certainly less strenuous.
 
The Hmong village people are friendly and albeit the many assertions of over-commercialisation in the area, the Cat Cat Village is still a nice spot to take touristy photos at the water wheels and watch some local performances.
 
Tip: The way back from the village to Sapa is a steep climb so if you do not fancy the walk, you can get a motorbike ride for 20,000VND (~S$1).

Sapa

Sapa is oriented to make the most of the spectacular views emerging on clear days; it overlooks a plunging valley, with mountains towering above on all sides. Views are often subdued by thick mist rolling across the peaks, but even when it's cloudy, local hill-tribe people fill the town with colour.

Be a third-wheeler at Sapa Love Market

Love and market? How contradictory! But that’s where the demand and supply of prospective partners and relationships interplay.
