    Just back from: Sapa, Vietnam

    We went because: To mountain-bike in the beautiful and ethnically diverse part of Vietnam near the border of China, and to explore northern Vietnam.
    Ellen Swain Veen & Bill Veen in Sapa, Vietnam.
    Don't miss: The local markets, where the women butcher the meat and sell produce and handicrafts.

    Don't bother: Driving anything motorized. Consider keeping your eyes closed when someone else is driving on the busy roads - it's a chaotic, terrifying sight.

    Coolest souvenir: A hand-embroidered bag.

    Worth a splurge: Having a Vietnamese guide, who introduced us to members of the hill tribes, including Hmong.

    We wish we'd packed: Long biking pants. A woman came up to me, slapped my calf, giggled and said she'd never seen such a big or white leg.
