Wed, 01/08/2020 - 14:08
Disapointed with jumbled urban development of Sapa? Let us give you a truly authentic misty town as you’ve always imagined!
Located in Thanh Phu village, about 30km from the center of Sapa town, Mai Ecolife homestay hides under the roofs of the Tay ethnic villages. It is isolated enough not to be affected by the urbanization of the town, also not too remote for getting there to be a challenge.
Carrying the mission of "making Sapa great again", what is happening here is expected to draw back the faith of visitors in an authentic Sapa, the lovely town without any mud of construction activities.
