Sapa was a place to return for us. A colorful world, the landscape and  the hilltribal culture set it apart from other regions in Vietnam. I loved trekking and this was just my dream. Perfectly whatI am looking for and even more than that. All valleys and hills were verdant and the view of teenage rice terraces was amazing. Thank you Visit Wonders for bringing us to this little paradise. My big thanks to Ms. Van Anh, who advised us the tours and kept in touch with us during our time in Vietnam.  I would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends who are contemplating a holiday in Vietnam.
