Sapa - Part 5

There are some restaurants offering both Vietnamese food and some non-Vietnamese dishes. Mid Range hotels usually boast about offering at least some "Western" dishes, and smaller hotels and guesthouses will normally be able to offer at least something non-Vietnamese. However, don't expect it to be "just like Grandma used to make".

 Mini crabs?

Likely the most interesting sight in town is the busy market, which serves people from all over the region. All around the market, vendors sold different snacks. There were piles of vegetables, stacks of bamboo baskets, and bowls of delicately painted quail eggs. I was always pursued by Hmong women, who sold beautiful patterned blankets in deep blues and electric greens. I was also called out to by seated vendors, who sold strange snacks from cover of umbrella.

This is not German wurst but Sapa stuffed sausages
