“Very great trip to mount Fansipan !”
Thanks Zonitrip for this great experience ! We climbed the mount Fansipan, the highest point in Vietnam. We were in Yen Bai which is 3hours from Hanoi by bus. Nghia organised everything for us, as dropped us on the Highway at midnight to catch the bus to Sapa !
We were only four in our group, and we started to hike the first day and we slept in the base camp (2800m). Good atmosphere and good people over there ! The guide cooked a great meal for us and we spent good time drinking some local alcohol and beers (you can find beers in the hut but you have to bring your own alcohol 😉
The day after we started to hike around 6.30am for 2 hours until the top of the Fansipan.
Unfortunately it was really cloudy, like almost every day so no regrets !
We decided to go down by the cable car (600 000 dng) cause of the rain. We had time to visit around Sapa and to meet some locals before to take the bus. The city is really nice even if it’s extremely touristy…
We went back in Yen Bai around 8pm and Nghia was waiting for us with her husband to dropped us at home.
That was 2 really nice days ! Thank you so much for everything ! I highly recommend Zonitrip !
“Amazing 5D/5N trip in North Vietnam”
Thank you Nghia for organizing the best trip I ever experienced. The first 2 days of our trip were spent trekking up Mount Fansipan, which is a first for me! Our third day was spent travelling around Sapa on a bike. Our guide, Mr T, was very professional and he made sure that we enjoyed the tour safely. Our last days of the trip were spent on a cruise in Ha Long Bay, which we visited Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top Island. All our transportation and accommodation were covered, and the guides were amazing! Nghia was contactable before and during the whole trip, and she made sure we reached our destinations smoothly! Thank you Nghia and Zonitrip, will try my best to visit Vietnam again and hope too see you again!

Ha Long Bay cruise -Relax? Always the right place”
After the adventure? Relax!! Luxury cruise on halong bay. We was the first boat on the bay, so we had the most beautiful view on the sunset. Good activities(a bit commercials but it’s common…), great food but over all, great service. The perfect way to relax after the motorbike tour.
You’ll lose the best tour operator in Vietnam missing ZoniTrip.
