It felt as if I was stepping back for thousands of years while walking upon the rice fields.
The bright green paddies had been a staple crop of Vietnam for centuries and, as I walked amongst the outskirts of Sapa on my way to the small villages, I could see that time had no reflection here.
The locals continued their daily routines of working the farms, caring for cattle and logging throughout the forest.
But for me, I continued to hike further into the remote countryside; gaining as much distance from the local town as I could and immersing myself into true, Vietnamese culture.
Walk with me as I step away from the local, raw markets of Sapa and trek into local territory for my very first Vietnamese homestay. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the wondrous views of rice paddies throughout the valley as much as I had!
