One of the highlights of our honeymoon around Southeast Asia was our time spent in Sapa, Vietnam where we did a homestay with Pham, a local Red Dao tribe member. After an overnight train ride from Hanoi to Lao Cai, we got a ride through the countryside to the village of Sapa. Our adventure in Sapa included a trek through the hills in the rural Vietnam countryside where we got to experience some of the local traditions and enjoy the views of the amazing rice fields that line the hillsides. Even though the weather was not the best it could have been, we were told that it was the nicest it had been in weeks and the first time it hadn’t rained in a while. Our homestay with Pham was such a great experience and we had more fun than we ever thought we would have. Below are pictures of some of our favorite experiences from our time in Sapa, Vietnam.
