Ta Phin Village
The colorful textiles and fragrant fields of Ta Phin holds within a tradition as old as the Sapa Valley.
One of the many villages amidst Vietnam’s dazzling paddy fields in Sapa Valley, Ta Phin invites visitors for a tranquil getaway.

You will soon notice that everyday life is all about the mountains, traditional handicrafts, and agriculture. One of the most striking images in Ta Phin is the limestone mountain that looms over the village houses. Around it is several field areas where you will see local farmers harvesting leaves. These leaves are part of the most authentic experience you will have in Ta Phin. Take part in an unforgettable bathing ritual with over 100 types of leaves. After revitalizing thanks to the centuries-old Sapa tradition, head to the village center. There, you will immerse yourself in some hearty Hmong textiles that embellish the streets.
If you are seeking a speck of adventure in a day filled with serene wandering, Ta Phin Cave is your address.
