Set amid the misty mountains in the northwest of Vietnam, the idyllic town of Sapa is where spectacular rice terraces meet welcoming hill tribes.
In the center of the town, you'll find the lovely Sapa Church (Holy Rosary Church), built by the French in the early 20th century. It is unique due to its simple design and there are stained glass windows of different saints on each side of the church. The Cat Cat Village, just about half an hour's walk from the town, is probably where you should go if you are interested in the Hmong minority and their culture or want to hike to soak up the splendid views of rice terraces. Besides, there's the Silver Waterfall just 15 kilometers away from the town, where you have the chance to take really great photos though you'll need to take a short steep walk to get the best views.
In short, Sapa is worth your stay on a Vietnam vacation to revel in its natural beauty and tribal culture.
