Tips for you
After motorcycling cross the country from Mekong Delta all the way to Lao Cai, I would image that I have seen enough real beauties and hypes of Vietnam. Yet, the best always comes last and this time this just seems to be true. Sapa is breathtakingly beautiful. Just 1h away from Lao Cai and it is completely different. This house, is 10km away from the Sapa 'metropolitan' and 'tourist' center. Which is the main reason in my opinion that doesn't get a lot of review. But does it worth it? Yes. I stayed in the village down at the valley. The sunset is so beautiful, sunrise is so peaceful and the host can speak fluent English and French. To all the motorcyclist that want to come here: the road is not good, do not ride in the dark. The family dinner is amazing. And if you are reading this and you are on a budget, they have dorm at 7USD dorm+5USD for dinner. The dorm is just a big mattress on a floor with mosquito net. It is cool/cold at night so no you don't need AC. Hot shower is amazing. After a day's ride, this is exactly what I need. Not many people frequent this place for its remote location, but for all 4 guys I met here, they stayed longer than 4 days. I would love to do so myself if I haven't had other arrangements. Woke up early in the morning, enjoy the sunrise over the mountains, a fresh cup of coffee and breakfast surrounded by the rise paddies, you will likely do the same. I enjoy my stay very much.
