Description of Vietnam hill tribe trek and homestay
This trip can be arranged at a time to suit you, and adapted to your requirements as necessary
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Planet and peopleSmall group: We limit our group to a maximum of 10 persons, our members are informed on how behave while trekking and staying there with the locals.
Local guide: They were born in Sapa and have learnt from the development of this town, they speak English, Vietnamese and the tribal languages like Hmong and Dao so as for the bridge of the locals and tourists. We sometimes work with the Hmong and Dao to be our tour guides, especially when we support the work of the locals.
Homestay: We spend one night in the Dao village (Ta Phin) and one night in Sapa, we pay them directly on each trip and our travelers have chance to learn so much more about their culture and customs. Rotation of families for homestay in Ta Phin Sapa is at our priority since this really makes everyone in the village happy and willing to do tourism.
Local food: As soon as we come to the homestay, we ask the Dao in Ta Phin to cook dinner for us, they will use their homemade vegetable, fishes, chicken for our delicious meals. So our money stays here.
Environment: We train our guides while trekking and visiting Taphin village in Sapa, we pick up trash when possible to make the village clean and to set the example to others, we also put the environmental awareness in our conversation with the locals so that they can do it themselves.
