How to interact to the Local People?
Whenever you enter into the Village in Sapa Mountain area you will meet the H’Mong, and The Red Dzao Minority who always follow you to try to sell something. Sometime these ladies make noise and bother you of course some travelers are not comfortable with these issues. You should tell them clearly you won’t buy anything if you don’t like to buy something or just say “No” with them when they try to sell something for you. Don’t say “Later or May be”, if you say like that they will keep going on to follow you.
We recommend you to buy local products on the shop to improve the best behavior for local people than you buy things for Street Vendors.
Ask for permit whenever you take pictures or come in to their house to visit before you do.
Don’t give children candy or money when they follow you on the street. They will like it and don’t want to go to school anymore. Just helps the children in the school if you like to do charity that attracted more and more children go to school for better life.
Our Private Notes
We are much closed to the rice paddy and our surrounding is very nature that why it might have some insects after harvested season. We just noted that for travelers who are scared about insect, mice, ect… should know about this and read carefully before booking because any cancellations less than 14 days notices will not get any refunds.
As a family business we might not use some international hotel industry standards like big hotels, we treat guests like our family then don’t be surprise when our hosts will sit with you during conservation or use a former words. We will try to make you feel you are at your home and you are our member of family not the guests.
We would love to welcome guests with smiles and open-mind and of course our hosts will support as much as we can but we don’t like to welcome guests who always like to complain to get a refund and say not welcome with these travelers.
We always try to do our best to make your stay more memorable and comfortable as much as possible. Life is so short then just make it easy enjoy, and relax, everything else we will care for you.
