Top hotels in Sapa

Sapa in the Northern Highlands close to the Chinese border is a lovely part of Vietnam. It is regularly included in Vietnam tour itineraries with people of all ages wanting to see this lovely region. Those who are fit enough will certainly enjoy trekking in the hills and valleys. It is possible to get pleasure from just seeing the wonderful colours and sights, hearing the sounds of the night and meeting the local ethnic tribes. Everything can be arranged by a Hanoi travel agent. Such an agent will be able to put together a Vietnam travel package which includes Sapa and one of the hotels that welcome its visitors:
