What people are saying about Sa Pa

The market was interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and very informative. However, too much time was spent traveling. We spent more time on the road than sightseeing. Even so, the tour was cut short in order to accommodate some guests who had an early bus to catch to their next destination. It would be good if the time allocated for the trip is a little longer.

Interesting market where you can see live buffalo, horses, pigs etc that were on sale. There's even dogs for sale as pet. You can see the different tribes selling their hardware etc. Very unlike other market I had visited

Great day trip to the Bac Ha market in NW Vietnam.

Good value for money, nice guide who appeared knowledgable. Bac ha market has amazing textiles.
