This half-day biking trip is a great combination of cycling and walking to discover Ta Phin, a picturesque village north of Sapa. Set within a valley with a towering mountain peak at one end, Ta Phin is alive with the daily life of Red Dao and Black H’mong people. There are many options of other destination for you to choose. The choice is really yours.


Our guide will pick you up at your hotel and start a ride today to mostly downhill through the suburb of Sa Pa. You’ll pass by Sa Pa town before heading to Ta Phin village where you will witness the daily life of the Red Dao and Black H'mong minorities. Ta Phin is home to two different ethnic minority groups, the Black Hmong and the Red Dao. Despite living together in the same place, each group has maintained their own customs over generations allowing now cultural mix. Though both groups wear colorful clothes, the Red Dao women are often most recognizable for their signature bright red turbans. Walk around the village to learn about how they live and trade by making embroidered fabric items by hand. Interact with villagers while visiting their houses. They may offer you the bath service with local herbs if you want to try. You will later get on the car for the journey back to Sa Pa.
