To be fair, I haven't tried every homestay in Ta Van, but I have stayed many places in Vietnam and I can definitely say the hospitality at Sapa Riceroad is a notch above. I was always greeted with warn smiles by Mr Chin and his lovely family. It is in a peaceful setting (so nice to escape noisy Sapa town!) surrounded by lush fruit trees, fantastic mountain and rice terrace views, and an adjacent pond teeming with several species of fish. The home cooked meals are exceptionally delicious, the wifi is great, and they even have a bathtub! Heaven!
