On the period of last September and early October of your Sapa tours, visitors have a great chance to admire the miraculous terraced fields.
In the cold weather of autumn, the valley “suddenly” shows off its bright colors. Many terraced fields are interwoven together to create beautiful curving bends.
From the view of the flycam, you will be mesmerized by the beautiful passes dotted by thrilling colors of vast rice fields stretching to the horizon. Wrapped in the early morning mist, the vast space of SaPa valley glows in the warm sunshine of high mountains.
When rice season is ripe, Sapa terraced rice fields turn in golden making visitors have a soft spot for this land’s beauty of peace and prosperity. It can be said that this is a precious gift that nature offers to the North West in particular and Vietnam in general.
In 2009, the famous travel magazine Travel and Leisure (USA) voted Sa Pa terraced fields as one of the seven most beautiful terraced fields in Asia and the world.
Wandering in the vast field, you will inhale the aroma of ripening rice in the wind by which you will feel completely relaxed.
Not only that, you can also peacefully look at the harmony of locals’ life full of hardship yet not in short of simple happiness.
Near and far in the rice fields, while adults are diligently working, tiny care-free kids play together with nothing heavy in their mind.
From the houses in the middle of the mountain, they back-to-back traverse the fields of ripe golden rice, gather in the vacant land, and laugh out loud in the valley.
Come to Sapa this season, do not be too busy with the rice fields and involuntarily forget to enjoy specialties such as thang co (horse-based dish), salmon, seven-color sticky, baked foods, and omni-black chicken.
We all know that Sapa’s daylight is so brilliant, this place’s nightlife becomes even more sparkling and fanciful.
As the night falls down, the town became freaking cold. White mist gone with the wind covers all rooftops and dim light take you to somewhere in a Europe town. Who once came to Sapa are hard to forget the incredulous feeling when immersed in the fairytale-like scenery here.
