Visiting Cat Cat village, you will have a chance to visit a big waterfall on the stream and the old Hydro Electric Power Station built by French people. That is the image of young women sitting by looms with colorful pieces of brocade decorated with designs of flowers and birds. When these pieces of brocade are finished, they are dyed and embroidered with beautiful designs. A noteworthy is that H’Mong women use indigo plants and leaves to dye these brocade fabrics. And then they roll around and smooth section of wood covered with wax on fabrics to polish them, making their colors durable.

Evening: After dinner, you are free to explore the charm of Sapa by night, enjoy roasted corn, baked eggs beside charcoal fire or go shopping.

HamRong Botanical Garden: don't miss the lovely botanical gardens above the main square in town with their spectacular viewpoint from the top.

There are fabulous views of the town and the wider landscape as well as tended gardens to visit.  This park is essentially a long cobblestone walkway to the top of Ham Rong Mountain.   It's a strenuous climb, but the panoramic vista at the top is well worth tackling all those stairs.

Along the way, there are countless potted orchids, beautiful landscaped gardens and a few really tacky statues of cartoon characters like Scooby Doo and Mickey Mouse. One word of caution, the stone stairs could be treacherous on a rainy or misty day.

Have lunch at local restaurant in Sapa.
