Sin Chai village may not be a well-known attraction for both tourist and Vietnamese people. Yet, inside this pristine village, there are a lot of wonderful scenery that could even make hardest hearts melt away…I bet. The very special thing is that, we will not be alone, all the kids in the village will be our companions during the adventure as you will fall in love with them. They will be around all the time, singing, dancing and will do anything to make you smile. Moreover, you can teach them songs, poems that you used to love when you were a child. Let’s take a look at these pictures and imagine that you’re flying with these innocent angels!
Let's start from Sapa, pass through Cat Cat Village.
Visit primary school and see intersting lovely dance in breaking time.
This is the very first reason I want you to come here! A peaceful and fresh atmosphere apart from the busy city life will definitely bring calm to your mind.
And next reason, the main one, are these smiles!
I will tell you the stories of these kids as we teach them sing songs together.
Let the kids go home to have lunch, it's also our time to go inside a H'mong traditional house for an authentic lunch with local people.
The bowl is modern and clean but the food is authentic.
During the meal, we will listen to H'mong traditions and customs while drinking some glasses of H'mong wine.
You may get drunk later, but it is good, isn't it?
For this kid, he only like steamed rice and sugar.
After having a small nap inside a classroom, let's climb up to the hill and play with kids.
And take unique beautiful pictures...
With innocent kids...
How couldn't you love them?
All I wish is a better future for these angels...
Let's take an exercise by climbing 100 meters higher! We will able to see the whole village and Hoang Lien Sơn sierra.
Fansipan - The highest mountain in Vietnam.
Silver waterfall - A famous destination in Sapa will be in your clearer view. You can also trek to Silver waterfall from Sin Chai (through forest and hills), but it will take one day more and you will need our kids to be your guide.
And terraces, of course, an indispensable part of Sapa.
(You will never see these pristine ceneries in other villages of Sapa due to cement houses built for tourism).
Do you want to join them?
Do this reminiscent you of your childhood?
With me, it's always amazing doing this.
I hope this trip will give you memorable memories about Sapa and minority kids here.
Our group of four people went there on August, when the weather was quite unpredictable. Xuan was caring by reminding us to bring the raincoat, since it was the rainy season. He let us do things at our own pace with no hassles or hurrying. However, you might need to be aware of a group of children trying to sell handmade stuffs from their village. But since they didn't push us to purchase (comparing to children vendors in Ho Chi Minh City), so our group just stayed quiet and kept walking. Also, if you don't expect too much on the facilities at the local's house, you will surely have a unique experience.
Hmmmm... Would I go there again? Definitely yes! But I'd rather go in dry season, as it was a challenge for me trekking on Sapa Market. I'm not the sportive type anyway LOL.
Life is moving and sharing!
Entrance tickets, English speaking guide, lunch, candies and sweets for kids, motorbike-taxi pick up back to Sapa.
