Sapa Vietnam :: One of the Most Beautiful Places on Earth

by wendy

Happy Friday everyone from one of the most beautiful places on Earth!  A huge claim, I know.  But Sapa, a mountainous town in northwestern Vietnam, is truly breathtaking.  We booked only one night in Sapa, but decided to extend our stay for another night after witnessing its beauty.  I honestly wasn’t planning to do a photo story in Sapa (mainly because we didn’t know what to expect), but this location is so beautiful that we couldn’t help but share.  The colors of blue, green, and aqua are more spectacular in real life.  Since we’re at the beginning of planting season, the rice fields are still brown.  Once harvesting season starts (around September), the rice fields turn into vibrant hues of green and gold.

Every morning starts with a bowl of pho and I couldn’t be happier!  Breakfast surrounded by mountains and this incredible view.

After posting this image on my IG @wendyslookbook, a lot of people asked about the location.  We stayed at the Topas Ecolodge in Sapa.  Just a note, Sapa is about 5 hours from Hanoi.  The only way to get to Sapa is by train, bus, or car.  Additionally, Topas Ecolodge is situated high up in the mountains and is about 50 minutes from Sapa town (which is quite charming!).  Most people who stay at this lodge take a day trip to Sapa town.  If you’re thinking/considering/planning a trip to Vietnam, I highly recommend Sapa!  Fly into Hanoi (we flew from Saigon to Hanoi for $25 one way/per person via Viet Jet) and make your way to Sapa.

  I hope you enjoy the location, photography, and styling!  Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
