Sapa Homestay


Our world award-winning Social Enterprise partners with homestays in Sapa that are authentic homes owned by local people of the villages.

Sapa O'Chau homestays allow you to experience the local culture of Sapa and support the local community. Sapa O'Chau helped some of the ethnic minority families to convert their home into a homestay. Thus you will get an authentic experience of living with the ethnic minority families. To provide some creature comforts for our guests, our homestays are fitted with modern western toilets, hot showers and mattresses.

In winter, you will experience how the locals huddle around the stove fire to keep warm. Your hosts may offer you rice wine, if you are of legal age, to help you keep warm. To keep warm in bed at night, you may ask for more blankets. The locals do not have the luxury of an electric blanket or radiator to warm their house. The village electricity cannot support these high electricity demand items.     

When you trek for more than a day with Sapa O'Chau, homestays are included in the package. Learn more about our homestays below.
