I loved taking photos while travelling and Visit Wonders brought us this wonderful tour to enrich my gallery. The view of Sapa and Bac Ha shrouded in fog and mist was stunning. And the local ethnic people were still wearing their traditional costume everyday, which gave me colorful shots. The rice terraces in ripening season was amazing, like staircase to heaven. Thank you for your great support during my holiday in Vietnam. Definitely, I will return.
