Kids Life... Smiles, tears and fun...

Older brother Giang (back, right) just has to annoy younger brother Nga until Bo, who is like a sister, comes to the rescue. Isn’t kids life same everywhere?


The Black Hmong are the 3rd largest minority in Vietnam with nearly 900,000 people. In the Sapa region there are about 35,000 Black Hmong residing in the surrounding 17 villages and they account for about 50% of the area population. Most reside at an altitude of 1,600 – 1,700 meters above sea level in this stunningly beautiful region they call “the city above the clouds”. The Hmong started migrating to Vietnam from China in the last 300 years.
