This is very nice & not too tiring! Great views of rice paddies and local villages. If you are lucky enough you will not be followed by 4!!! women trying to sell you the same things:-)

We like the area which is not full with tourists but we cannot avoid the tribes that love to follow us and practice their English and of course with the hope that with their company we would buy some souvenir from them.

The road is a bit hilly compared with the Tavan Village area which is extremely easy to walk. So this area might not be suitable for senior people.

It is quite full of obstacles but I'm sure you will definitively get amazing experience on the road to Ta Phin Village. It's approximately 10km far from the Sapa town. You can go there on the same road to Lao Cai train station. There are a few ethnic minority groups out there, such as Red Dao, Black Dao. When you get in Ta Phin Village, don't miss taking a bath with Dao's leaf.

We rented a motor scooter while in Sapa, arranged by our good friends at Casablanca Hotel and made our way to Ta Phin village. Wow, Don't ride one of these scooters unless your used to riding motorcycles as the road to the village at times was little more than a water buffalo path... But well worth the ride.

We rented a scooter from Sapa and went to TaPhin Village. There is a small charge to enter the road up to the village. The road is very rough in spots but that was half the fun. The views were incredible and well worth the side trip to see this local town.
