Travelling and staying in one of the villages around Sapa adds to the experience of this area of Vietnam. We booked private Sapa Hard Trekking Tour and homestay tours in Hanoi and had great time & valued. A little bit hard when trekking from Sapa town to Taphin Village & homestay but it’s really amazing, passing many landscapes, terraced rice fields, valley. Visit local houses, chat with local people will be great experiences. All of them are very friendly & hospitality.
“Totally mesmerised by views of the rice terraces~”
Enjoy Mu Cang Chai
“My three day trip to Mu Can Chai was fantastic. I couldn’t have asked for more. The owner of Zonitrip Nghia was my personalised guide and rider but it felt more like I was riding with my friend. Nghia was very professional right from my first contact. She responded promptly to my enquiry and make the whole process easy. I felt like my hand was being held every step of the way from being collected from my hotel in Hanoi, taken to the bus station and then being collected in Yen Bai. As I am a solo traveller this service was very much appreciated. I would throughly recommend Zonitrip.”
