Hi my name is Sung! I was born and raised in Hầu Thào village in Sapa. There are 5 ethnic minority groups in Sapa and I am apart of the Hmong ethnic tribe. I live in Ta Van village where I help my in-laws manage Indigo Snail Boutique Hmong Homestay, which is family ran. By living here my whole life I can share my culture, family, experiences and traditions with you. I will take you along some of my favorite paths that only some locals know about which have some incredible views. I have been trekking the mountain valleys my whole life and providing local tours for the past 3 years. I learned a little bit of English at school but have since learned majority of my English from travelers! Thank you for support me, my family, as well as our local Hmong's.
