Vietnam is the dream country for discovering local cultures, visiting temples, taking time to stroll on the beaches or go trekking! The town of Sapa in northern Vietnam is the departure point for many trips. At 1,200 metres high, it offers breathtaking views of the rice fields. Mountains, rice fields, valleys, its landscape is rich and varied and offers treks that suit both beginners and experts depending on your objectives. The only drawback: it's an extremely touristic region, make sure you choose your guide well if you want to go off the beaten track.
