About Sapa

Hmong Kids

Sa Pa is a quiet mountain town and home to a great diversity of ethnic minority peoples. The total population of 36,000 consists mostly of minority groups. Besides the Kinh (Viet) people (15 percent) there are mainly five ethnic groups in Sa Pa: Hmong 52 percent, Dao 25 percent, Tay five percent, Giay two percent, and a small number of Xa Pho. Approximately 7,000 live in Sa Pa, the other 36,000 being scattered in small communes throughout the district. wikipedia

Sa Pa has cool weather. It not too hot and not too cold. Sapa is in northern Vietnam. It can have 4 seasons in one day! Sapa has stunning mountain views of “Fansipan 3.143m (the highest peak in the Indochina peninsula), Hoang Lien and Dragon” and traditional villages such as Lao Chai, Ta Van, Ta Phin and Cat Cat.

The best time to visit Sapa is in August and September when the green and yellow terraced rice fields are in full splendor, and many families are havesting.

One of the highlights of our trip! This was definitely one of the highlights from our trip. Not only is Sapa and the views stunning but our guide Npaus was absolutely awesome. She was funny, informative and spoke great English. We were given the option to to a trek up into the mountains or one in the valley. We opted for the more difficult mountain route. Npaus gave us as many breaks as we needed and they did provide a bottle of water. But I suggest bringing additional water as it’s hard and hot. Walking through the local villages was so cool and the way they live and interact is unique. We booked everything through Sinh who was very responsive and followed through to make sure we had all questions answered. Really such a unique and wonderful experience. And our guide confirmed that the money goes directly to the locals, an even bigger plus. Thanks for a fabulous experience!

We did the six hour trekking tour with Xee through the stunning rice terraces in Sa Pa. An experience that we undoubtedly never forget. Xee is a very nice and good englisch-speaking guy who explained a lot and gave information about the region. We recommend the tour with Xee without limitations!

Tzu is an awesome guide with a quirky sense of humour - So we booked everything through Sinh and he has a great level of english. We had a conference call with him via WhatsApp and arranged everything even paid the 60 USD in advance and we couldn’t be happier to have booked it with him. His sister in law (Tzu) was the one who took us on the actual trekking tour and she was a bright spark with a quirky sense of humour. She made the whole experience so much more amazing. The trek is not for the faint of heart. We did the 2D 1N and it rained throughout. It did not stop raining the whole time we were in Sapa or in the valley and I’m not exaggerating. Nothing that a good pair of raincoats and boots couldn’t handle though. The views were astoundingly beautiful. The simple way of life the locals lead is nothing short of happiness. Love love loved it. The trek through the bamboo forest is tough but the waterfall at the end is spectacular. Prepare for the rain (just in case) take your things in plastic bags, don’t underestimate it like we did. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my entire life. Definitely recommend it, don’t miss it for the world

What an experience! it will no doubt stay with us forever. We booked overnight train, transfer to sapa and 2 days trekking with homestay via Sinh, and i can only recommend it. we travelled with 2 kids, aged 7 & 11. Sinh was patient and generous with his advise in the run up, answering 200 questions via email. every element of the experience was smooth, great communication and service, superb guide, reliable and on time drivers. Sapa is incredibly beautiful and the experience will stay with us forever, covering water buffallos to rice fields, swimming in waterfalls and dining with a local family. The trek is fairly demanding for kids, but so rich of experiences it kept even the 7 year old motivated to the end.

We spent two fantastic days in Sapa Valley. Our tour guide Sinh H’mond speaks good and fluent English. He took care of us during the whole trip and helped us with everything. He is a great tour guide! The weather during this part of the year is rainy but due to amazing views the trip is worth effort. In the whole area the internet is available. We strongly recommend this company and this trip!!

Wow! Where to start.... The booking process was simple and blew our minds how easy it all was once we got to the hanoi train station! The train exceeded expectations, the transfer from the station to sapa was flawless, friendly driver and the period between drop off and meeting our guide was filled with delicious breakfast and kind hosts at the restaurant! We meet our fabulous guide Xee, who walked in with a cheeky friendly fun smile and we knew this was going to be fun. Xee was patient as we got organised and selected new shoes for the trip as it was pouring with rain, he told us the plan for the day and got us moving. Xee's english was great and he stopped along the way for beautiful photo opportunities and information about the area, the rice paddys and the life and culture of the local people. Xee had many laughs with us and provided epic support along the very wet and at times challenge areas of the hike! We got to the home stay- again wow! The hosts were so very friendly and the room was exceptional. Our view was over the valley and just watching as the clouds passed by was awesome. Sue and her family provided delicious food- some of the best we have had this trip. We all ate together and we were able to join conversation and watch the children play, we felt welcomed and part of the family. The second day was again rainy and Xee organised our bags to meet us after the hike as the trail was going to be a lot harder. Our hike was a lot more challenging then the previous day and thre was a lot of laughter, and close calls with bums hitting the ground! Xee lead us through and joined our fun. Lunches both das were delicious and in some of the beautiful country side. We got back to sapa and runited with our bags with ease. We can not thank Xee and Sinh for the wonderful trip and the organisation of the whole process for us. We would most certainly recommend this team and would return in a heart beat for another hike with this team. Thank you for a memorable experience and a chance to see you beautiful area. 10/10 Note: would recommend taking decent walking shoes that will get wet and dirty and light weight bags with water proof jackets, we were not that organised.

This was my favourite hike I have done so far in Sapa! It was amazingly unique. Sapa I’m unlike anywhere else I have seen in Vietnam. Sinh, our tour guide, spoke very good English. He was very knowledgeable in Sapa history and cultures. Bonus is that he was very kind and funny! I would recommend this tour for anybody who wants to see the unique sapa landscape! It is an excellent value for the price.

We just finished the 3 day / 2 night trekking tour with Sinh and it was awesome!! Highlight of our trip so far. He is an experienced guide and is extremely genuine so it’s easy to becomes friends fast. He does a really good job communicating the trip plan and schedule each day so you feel your in good hands the whole time. The food and homestays were both very good as well! He also will teach you about his family, the plant and animal life, and the different ethnic minorities that call Sapa home along the way. I highly recommend his tour company to anyone that wants to avoid the crowds and experience the amazing views and villages around Sapa. Tips: buy rain boots in town as the trails are very muddy in the winter, pack some snacks or buy some along the way to carry you between the provided meals (which were really good)

This was a really great experience, going on a local trek with Sinh through the majestic and wondrous area around Sapa. Sinh is a truly thoughtful, knowledgeable and positive host who encouraged questions. I took that encouragement to heart and probably asked dozens of questions about the countryside, the flora and fauna, the Hmong people of this area and even about how he met his beautiful and gracious wife who accompanied us on the trek. I would highly recommend Sinh as a guide and his trek as an amazing experience.

I have been traveling South East Asia for 6 months, Vietnam for over 4 months and this was one of my best experiences so far. We started in the south and I have found that this country just gets more and more beautiful the further north we go. I had seen pictures of Sapa and knew I wanted to take my daughter when she came to visit. I usually avoid guided tours and prefer to do things alone, finding my own way. But I was really keen to learn about the Hmong ethnic minority so I decided to book a trek. That's when I found Sinh, and I'm so very glad I did! Sinh was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. I had so many questions before I booked with him and he patiently and professionally answered them all. The whole experience was absolutely magical. We were a group of 12 and right from the beginning we all bonded so well. The trekking was amazing, the sights, the sounds, and the people. The homestays that Sinh had arranged for us were such beautiful little relaxing retreats after long days trekking, the food was authentic, so tasty and plentiful … and the apple rice wine … wow! Sinh is part of the H’mong ethnic minority, and his English is fantastic which meant that we all got to learn so much about the culture, the people and the land. It was amazing to learn so much about all we were seeing and the daily lives of the people. Sinh's a wonderfully warm person. Very friendly and great fun, his enthusiasm is infectious. Thank you so much Sinh, your knowledge, positive energy, and warm personality made the tour so much more than we could have expected. I can't recommend highly enough !!!

We did a very nice 1 day rice field trekking tour with Sinh and his brother. Beginning of the tour was quite challeging but very fun. We got lot of information about the rice fields, area and the minority people. Lunch and sone water was included. Make sure you have good hiking shoes and some clothing for rain.

I was Invited to go to Sapa and enjoy the trip organized by Sinh. Expecting nothing as I had heard so many review on how Sapa is boring, I was shocked and amazed by the scenery of Sapa Sinh showed us through the tour. All the terraced rice field, the H’mong children smile, the sky, the cloud and much more than that totally rocks my mind. I am 100% sure that this is the Sapa I was looking for. Natural, untouched, beautiful and ... I guess you will have to discover that by yourself with Sinh (don’t wanna be a spoiler). Pls come and enjoy! Sinh is so far the best Sapa tour guide you need while staying in Sapa! Thank you Sinh, wish you and your family all the best wishes in the future!

Sinh is one of the friendliest persons I’ve ever met. Always with a bright smile, he told us everything important about the area, vegetation, history and the people living in Sa Pa. My favourite moment during our tour was the visit in his family. Sinh explained us a lot things about his ethnic minority and the work in the rice fields. I was really impressed and became so emotional about the stories, that I had to think about this conversation the next days. (Honestly, it was a lifechanging moment for me.) Sinh, thank you for everything. We could never find a better guide than you and I am so thankful to meet you. See you, when I will come back to Vietnam.

We enjoyed the trek with Sinh and his brother. We hiked through corn fields, went over barbed wire fences, crossed streams and balanced our way across muddy rice terraces. Our shoes were dirty compared to other tourists taking tours from other companies... and that's exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Sinh (and baby brother) for the fun experience. Tip: Wear trekking shoes with good grip!

Sometimes when traveling it is difficult to receive an authentic and true experience when going with a guide, but with Sinh it is truly going on an adventure with a long time friend. He was able to accommodate the trip and make it even more enjoyable than expected. I also loved how up front he was with everything and we did not have any surprises regarding trip details. We got to practice some Vietnamese, English and Spanish. He is very sweet and knowledgeable about Sapa and the surrounding areas and he really enjoyed sharing his culture with us. Thank you Sinh for making our experience in Sapa better than we could have hoped. Thank you!

After some easy and effective communication with Sinh to organise this trek, our local guide La met us at our hotel at 9am to get started. The trek was fantastic with La giving us insight into the local minorities, whilst taking us on the road less travelled and moving through the rice fields and villages. We came across very few other tourists as La wanted to take us on the quieter roads/paths. This meant that we saw small villages, families and the way of living. It felt very insightful and was very interesting. As we travelled further, taking in the beautiful scenery we stopped for lunch and enjoyed some fried noodles and vegetables. We finished the tour after crossing a river and visiting another local minority village which was a lot busier and seemed to be where a lot of the tourists went. However, La took as away from the main tracks and we took in the last of the beautiful views before being picked up and taken back to our hotel. This was a brilliant experience! Thank you to La!

Sinh is an extremely friendly person who I would definitely recommend meeting. He was knowledgable and accommodating. We booked a day trek with him and asked about transportation. He arranged for a shuttle to pick up the six of us at Lao Cai train station and take us to our hotel. Thing is .. we booked the wrong week! We booked a week later than we arrived. We sent a message to Sinh at 6:00 AM when we arrived at the train station the morning of our intended trek day. He was understanding and luckily, was free for a tour. We had to arrange alternative transportation because it was last second and we were already at the train station. Sinh met us at our hotel promptly at 9 AM. He brought us each a bottle of water and explained the route he would be taking us on. He examined our footwear to make sure they were appropriate for the trek. Along the trek, he made the effort to have some conversation with each person in the group. He was there to help us when we seemed stuck on the trail. He arranged for lunch part way through the hike which was pretty good. He also had a shuttle pick us up when we were done trekking to take us back to our hotel. It took us about 6ish hours to complete the trek. Time will depend on how fast your group moves. This was a great experience at a brand new place. Sinh definitely helped make it great. Thank you, Sinh!!

Sinh and his wife's trekking experience was exceptional. My boyfriend and I felt an instant connection to both and enjoyed hearing stories and facts about their culture and Sa Pa. We felt very looked after by Sinh and his wife, who obviously knew the land so well. We felt very safe throughout and enjoyed the stunning views. Sinh also provided us with lunch and water, which was an added bonus. We would recommend Sinh for an authentic experience trekking through Sa Pa. We'll never forget such a beautiful day 🙂

Trekking with Sinh was by far the highlight of our stay in Sapa. Sinh is a Hmong guide and while you walk, he will teach you the culture of the different indigenous people of the Sapa valley. As guide he is always trying to give you the best experience and make sure you are safe (rocks are often slippery) Sinh will adapt to all kind of needs. You can do a small trek or, like us, a one day 20km trek. You can even do homestay in a village. You can't go wrong with Sinh

I was so bloody happy to supppry Sinh as a member of the Black H’mong. Many guiding experiences do not benefit the local villages due to foreign ownership. Sinh connected me with other locals and was so fun to run down the trails with. If you’re in shape and looking to get a good sweat and laugh along the way, he’s your man. I spent a total of 4 days with Sinh on various treks throughout the valley and up Fansipan. I feel fortunate to have found him on Airbnb and make a new friend in Sapa.

Elle s'est très bien occupée de nous. Le lunch pris à mi-parcours était excellent. C’est une excellent activité hors des sentiers touristiques traditionnels. Nous la recommandons sans aucune hésitation. Manon et Sébastien

We did a 2 day, 1 night trek with Sinh and had a truly splendid experience. Sinh met us at the Sapa city center (Notre Dame cathedral), introduced himself and his Wife who is currently his "training guide" explained the trip itinerary and we set off on a beautiful adventure. The terrain was a mixture of rugged side hill trails, small dirt roads, paved (yet remote) scooter trails, and viaduct paths. We never grew tired of the views, unclose encounters with vietnamese farm life was a pleasant surprise, meals were everything we could have hoped for, the homestay was clean, the shower was hot, everybody was friendly. You will notice that Sapa is the center of massive tourist development by huge corporations. It was really cool to support Sinh in his small business entrepreneurship. For a kid who grew up without electricity, in a family of rice farmers it is pretty impressive that he learned english, and built a trekking tour company from scratch. If you would rather hike than sit in a shuttle bus, this is the experience for you.
