After my Master research in Nothern Vietnam, back in 2013, I have visited the area more than once. Since one year, I’m helping some of the local H’mong families to set up their small social enterprise in sustainable tourism. Therefore I designed and developed the website www.realsapa.com for them. With this website, they are able to get in touch with tourist directly, without the interference of big companies.
“Most important is that we give back to our community. Tourism can help my people to make stable income.” – Lang Giang
REAL SAPA is social enterprise, 100% owned by locals. Owned by a group of Black H’mong cousins living in a mountain valley in northern Vietnam. They grow watermelons, oranges, dragonfruit and bananas on a five-hectare orchard about 37 kilometers from Sapa. Tourism in the area is providing them with new opportunities to earn sustainable salary. With that income, they can help their families and communities.
