Company Description and Location: 
Springdale is the gateway community at the entrance to Zion National Park. You can see fanciful Eagles Crags, magnificent Canaan Mountain, the noble Watchman, the towering East and West Temples, and haunting Mt. Kinesava from town. You can also see hawks and eagles soar overhead, deer, and cottonwoods grow tall by the Virgin River. Springdale is a year-round destination resort with a variety of outdoor activities: hiking, swimming, tennis, and rentals available for bicycling, tubing, hiking, and horseback riding. In the midst of a natural rural setting you can enjoy many cultural activities, entertainment and nightlife such as a giant-screen Cinemax movie, a 1,000-seat outdoor amphitheater, a museum, art galleries, bookstores, a playhouse, family concerts, a folklife festival, and a bar featuring live blues, rock, jazz or folk music.

Thai Sapa was born out of Chef Tung’s passion for cooking in her native home of Vietnam, & her husband Dennis’ love of both the town of Sapa & the world-famous Thai coconut dish, Tom Khaa Gai. They have hosted over 30 Work & Travel students over the last 15 years and it has always been a mutually enjoyable experience. The area is majestic, quiet and safe…not to mention, the food is delicious!
