What to see
One of the prominent features of Nam Sai is three waterfalls that nature has granted this village: Nam Ngan Fall (Silver Stream Fall), Ba Tang Fall (Three Layer Fall) and Ca Nhay Fall (Jumping Fish Fall); all located within the perimeter of 3km from centre commune. Each waterfall has its own beauty, but might all bring the same feeling of harmony with their dazzlingly white water and rumbling sound echoing over mountains and forests.
Nam Sai not only has wonderful natural scenery but also an interesting mix of ethnic groups. When coming here, visitors will be met with enthusiasm and hospitality from ethnic minority of Xa Pho people, Tay or Giay people. Especially the rare and elusive Xa Pho, living in Lao Cai province in Vietnam and probably on the China side of the border nearby. They are few, numbering just a few thousand people and have a very distinctive and attractive dress, consisting of dark indigo cloth jacket and skirt, decorated with embroidered designs and panels of seeds arranged in star shapes.
