Day 2 Hanoi – Sapa Local Life experience

Wake up early in the morning and our comfortable limousine will pick up at your hotel for a 5 hour transfer to Sapa through the beautiful landscape of the mountain area.
As soon as you arrive our guide will pick you up and take you to a local restaurant for lunch at your own expense.
After lunch, you will be transferred to Y Linh Ho, home to the Hmong minority, and their hereditary rice terraces are around 100 years old. This is a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in true Hmong culture! From Y Linh Ho you will make your way to Lao Chai, an established Hmong minority village which has been inhabited for centuries. See the products of this minority at their best, with well-established rice terraces, homes and a vibrant community. In addition, on the way you will see local villagers harvesting on their yellow terraced rice fields. You will be warmly welcomed by a Black Hmong family in their home at Lao Chai village.

Day 3 Sapa Deep in the valley

When you wake up open the window and have a look outside. Weather permitting you will be treated to amazing views across the rice terraces in the valley. After breakfast, you will make your way to Ta Van where you will visit the Giay minority people. This tribe traditionally fish for a living and as a result established themselves close to rivers. They have mastered the art of fishing with bamboo sticks, and cook the fish inside bamboo. Nowadays, however, you are more likely to see the Giay working in fields planting or harvesting rice. You will continue your walk through an impressive bamboo forest to Giang Ta Chai, and then on to the village of Su Pan where you will be able to rest your legs and take in the stunning mountain scenery as we stop for a picnic lunch.
Feeling revitalized you will hike the final 6km to Ban Ho village where you will spend the night at a Tay people’s homestay. Their houses are particularly special as they are built on stilts overlooking rice terraces. Dinner will be cooked on an open fire, and some local specialty rice wine will be on offer to help you wind down!
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Local Homestay

 

 

Day 4 Sapa – Hanoi – Train experience

On Day 3 you will know when it's time to wake up when you hear the patter of feet on bamboo as the household comes alive. After a filling breakfast in the homestay we will walk 3km to Nam Toong village, home to the Red Dao minority. Providing the weather is nice you will be able to cool off with a swim in the river (and if the weather's not so nice you still can if you're feeling brave!). Lunch will be provided back at the Ban Ho homestay, after which we will drive back to Sapa, arriving at around 3pm with a great sense of achievement. You'll then have your own time to discover the busy town of Sapa. Have a foot massage or go shopping before you transfer to Lao Cai for night train to Hanoi, one of the greatest experiences by train in Vietnam.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Accommodation: Local Homestay

Day 5 Halong Relaxing time

Your train will arrive in Hanoi early in the morning. Enjoy a leisurely walk back to your day-use hotel for a short rest and breakfast before getting on a 3-4 hour journey to Halong Bay - a natural world wonder. Spend a night onboard an elegant junk, cruising on the emerald water to the far and less touched areas of Halong; it is a lifetime experience that you will never forget! And that is a reason we name it the perfect Vietnam tour for couples.
You'll arrive at the dock at around noon and you will then embark on the cruise, followed by a delicious lunch while the cruise sails further into the secluded, island-dotted bay. You will join in the cruise's activities such as visiting caves and sandstones islands, and kayaking. And at night, relax on the sun deck or go squid fishing.
