Tours and treks
Loads of options
What we say:
If you don't want to do an organised tour, an easy self-guided trip runs to the Flower H'mong village of Ban Pho, three kilometres outside of town. Walk past the Sao Mai hotel, follow the road round to the right and take the first left, by the hospital.
The more popular trips available are listed below, but you'll need to check prices as they vary dependent on number of people -- discuss your requirements with Mr Nghe who runs Green Sapa Tours, the only tour operator in town (outside of the hotels).
