    As the days move, so do they travel plans, damn you work.....

    We plan to spend 4D3N in SAPA (is this too long?) and was wondering whether there are any day tours that can be done from the town. We would like to stay at hotel 'X' and do regular day trips to the surrounding area(s) whilst returning to the hotel at the end of the day. If so, are there any recommendations on tour agencies that people have had positive experiences with or are the hotel ones generally reliable if not a tad more expensive??


    Our trip will be broken up into 2 lots of stays in HANOI, 3N at the start and 3-4N at the end with SAPA and a 3D2N HLBay trip in between. Is this too much or just enough to see the sights and delights of the area.

    Your opinions are greatly sought.

    Hi Benno - just wondering have you finished your trip to Vietnam as yet? We are heading off mid next month and I am currently deciding on what to do when we are in Sapa. We are looking at doing the same as you. I am keen on visiting the markets and seeing the scenery without doing a full on trek. If you can let me know how you went it would be appreciated.

    Hi there! Spending 4D3N in SAPA is too long in my opinion. Trekking-in-Sapa is awesome but you may need 3D2N is okay. About tour agency i suggest Vietnam package travel. They offer well opperate tours and they take responsibilities to customers.
