Topas Ecolodge, Sapa & the Tonkinese Alps, Vietnam
The lodge, built to blend in with the villages nearby and to strict environmental standards, has one of the most beautiful locations anywhere in Vietnam. It sits right on the summit of a mountain overlooking an absolutely glorious view of the lower Sapa Valley and the Tonkinese Alps beyond. The rooms are simple but are en-suite and comfortable. The price for being so far off the beaten track is a lack of restaurant choice, though this is amply compensated for by the breathtaking views from the lodge balconies and the fact that the food at the restaurant is some of the best in the area.
