Liitle girl Hmong in Sapa

As one of the best destinations in north Vietnam along with Ha Long Bay, Hanoi and Ha Giang, Sapa has so much to offer. Sapa is always a famous destination and this makes many local H’mong women and children to become vendors and street hawkers following tourists and trying to sell things. It’s a problem- the kids come all the way from their villages to sell souvenirs to help support their families and sometimes they sleep in the market or don’t attend school.
