    hilltribe kids in the rice patties

    For some of the best hilltribe trekking in the world you must go up to SaPa. SaPa can be reached from hanoi by night train to Lao Cai and then an hour bus to Sapa, or by a more direct 12 hour or so bus. For some it may be a pain to get to SaPa, but it is completely worth it!!
