    • Please DO NOT bring candies to the children : You may be thinking it is a nice gesture but you are hurting them more than doing good (they can NOT afford a dentist) you can instead offer them balloons, pencils, notebook and others useful things you may be thinking of...

    • Cat cat village treck is a very easy one with a beautiful scenery through the walk and reaching the most beautiful piece of "heaven" in the middle of the treck....the waterfalls. Do not give it a miss, it is defiantly a "must do" thing to do while you are in sapa.
      Anat, Sydney, Australia
    • Seeing how the Hmong people really live is an eye opener. The waterfalls are pretty and the children cute.

    • We had an amazing day at CatCat village, a day trip that we reserved by Customized Tour was great. Should bring some tradditional clothing and tried some food here, the locals were friendly as well. We would recommend to visit the village in the Sunday morning!

    • Easy walk to the village. The valley setting is super, we had a guide who took us off the beaten path alot and we walked across wide open fields and tip-toed on narrow bits of dry land between rice paddies. The people are what make the area so nice. The Hmong are so very friendly and chatty.
