Overview of Sapa Villages
Did you know that Sapa is the place where the local ethnic minorities gather even more than the normal Vietnamese people? It is home to a great diversity of ethnic people, including four main groups: Mong, Dao, Tay, and Giay. They do not live in central area but in hamlets scattered among the valleys throughout the Sapa district. The town of Sapa is where ethnic minority people assemble, trade, or sell their farming products such as rice, corn, fruits, as well as handicrafts and souvenirs to travelers. There is one interesting fact about ethnic minority people in Sapa, especially the Mong tribe: they can speak English even better than Vietnamese university students!
