The first thoughts you might have when passing the main gate to SAPA might be “Where am I? Is it Vietnam? And in fact people are not that far from the truth. SAPA is a huge marketplace where you can buy all different kind of things but also get a haircut while waiting for your kid who is attending the local private language school. Or taste the true vietnamese cuisine in local restaurants. Some people even call it “Little Hanoi”.
Last summer 2015 I tried to get a bit of insight into peoples life through interviews/talks with the local people.
