The H'mong and Dao (also known as Zao) are the most common hill tribes people in the Sapa area. Different tribes have different languages and customs even though the distance from one tibe to another is small. The influence of China is very evident in the Zao who practice ancestor worship. Women love to wear silver coins which are an indication of wealth and status. Animal sacrifice is common. The Zao can be identified by the bright red turban.
