Sapa is Vietnam's trakking paradise, with a lot of small villages in the area to discover and it's also here you find Vietnam's highest mountain fan si pan with its 3143m.
I felt the village Sapa, was way to touristy and grown to fast so I really recommend you to stay in one of the smaller places around, my choice was Ta van. A lovely lite town 3h hike or 30min bike ride from Sapa.
Here you have stunning views and easily accessible hiking trails that you can do by yourself....
