Ha Giang tour and Sapa tour are inspired by 29 ethnic groups, many of whom maintain a very traditional culture and many live an isolated life from the mainstream society. Furthermore, with scenery magnificent; the craggy mountain ranges covered in mystic clouds make you feel like wandering in a fairyland, valleys between the mountains are enhanced by spectacles of colored villages each with distinctive architectural features and fascinating spots for watching the sunset.
