Lao Chai - Ta Van Village, Muong Hoa, Sapa

Located about 10 kilometers from Sapa town, Ta Van Village is nested in the poetic Muong Hoa valley. It is home to the H’Mong ethnic, Giay, and Red Dao… with approximately 1000 people.

The main road to Ta Van village is small and narrow. Along two sides of the road are lush rice terraces adorned with the fields of ripe corn. Visitors have a chance to explore the long – established and unique history, culture and lifestyle of the Giay minority. Traditionally the Giay were fisher people. They used to fish with bamboo sticks, and cook fishes inside the bamboo. Now you are more likely to see the Giay working in fields, planting or harvesting rice but they still built their villages near streams. Ta Van village is also a popular stop for those who would like to experience an overnight home stay with a family of Giay people here, sharing dinner with them and understand more about the simple but happy and amiable life of ethnic people.
