girls from the hill tribes of Vietnam

Sapa, Vietnam

 

We took the overnight sleeper train from Hanoi to Sapa, a town which is close to the border of China. Sapa is a gathering place both for travellers planning on hiking in the spectacular terraced mountains, as well as several local ethnic minorities or 'hill tribes' often on their way to the market, like the girls on the photo.
