Ta Phin Village

Fifteen kilometres from the Sapa’s town centre lies Ta Phin Village, an off-the-beaten path tourist attraction surrounded by towering mountains and lush rice terraces.

Home to Red Dao and Black Mong ethnic groups, visiting Ta Phin Village is a great way to see how ethnic groups thrive in Sapa — upon entering the village, you will be welcomed by eager locals who want to give you a tour of their village. Along the way, you’ll see locals going about their usual activities: women weaving and making embroidery and brocade products to sell to visitors, men working in the field, and local guides showing tourists their traditional houses and abundant rice fields. A favourite destination of Sapa trekking tours, Ta Phin Village combines beauty with interesting culture and tradition — a mix that makes it a must-visit attraction.
