Itinerary


Day1: Ha Noi Night Train For Lao Cai
Meet the tour guide at your hotel and travel the train station for the 10:30p.m.  Express train for Lao Cai. Overnight on board the train.

Day2: Arrive in Lao Cai/Lao Cai - Sapa
Arriving at Lao Cai in the early morning, you can sip the hot coffee and enjoy the view of China on the other side of the Red River. From Lao Cai the road winds up the terraced hillsides to Sapa, which offers the stunning mountain views of the North West of Vietnam.

We travel to the hotel and enjoy the rest of the morning free at leisure. In the afternoon, we'll enjoy a walking, trekking and hiking tour to the Cat Cat Waterfall and Cat Cat Village which is home to the Black H'Mong people. The fresh nature offers stunning atmosphere and beauty. Overnight in Sapa Town.

Day3: Sa Pa (B)
Breakfast at the hotel
Our morning tour is first by jeep to Lao Chai village (Black H'Mong). From Lao Chai, we have a short trekking trip amid the green or golden terraces depending on seasons to Ta Van village (the Black H'Mong and the Giay people). We rejoin our jeep at Ta Van and travel back to town for a break.

In the afternoon, we continue with our tour to Ta Phin village visiting the Red Zao people. In Ta Phin we’ll enjoy the stunning nature settings and learn how the Zao live their life. After the tour, we’ll travel back to town and you enjoy free time at leisure. Overnight in Sapa

Day4: Sapa. Sapa – Lao Cai. Night Train for Hanoi (B)
We enjoy our morning tour to the wild orchid of Ham Rong Mountain. The mountain is just close to Sapa Town. Climbing the mountain is not a real adventure, but it requires a bit of effort. Once here we’ll be rewarded with the beautiful orchid flowers, the panoramic view of Sapa surroundings and the traditional ethnic minority music performed by the local boys and girls.

In the afternoon, we check out of the hotel and journey to the Gate Way to Heaven and the Silver Waterfall. On Tram Ton Pass, we’ll feel small by the 360 degrees view of the fresh surrounding nature: the ranges of high mountains above, the green valleys with terraces below, dotted in the nature are hill tribe villages and the hill tribe colorful costumes. On a clear day with the sun shining across, we are quite sure that it’s no different from heaven. We cherish the nature beauty for a moment and tour back to Lao Cai Train Station. From Lao Cai, we’ll board the night train bound for Ha Noi. Overnight on board the train.
