Weather in Hanoi Area & Sapa in January
8th November, 2008
I'm planning a trip to Vietnam on January - I am starting at HCMC and traveling up north.
Does the weather up north allow traveling & trekking at this time of year? I am especially interested in trekking in the Sapa area

I am currently in Sapa and intend to leave on Saturday morning, stay overnight in DBP and catch the 5.30am Sunday bus to cross into Laos via Tay Trang. What I am having real problems finding out about here are the local buses to DBP from Sapa , where they leave from, on which days and times and how much I should pay for the trip. Please if anyone has made this trip recently avoiding the tour offices prices for "minibuses" to DBP let me know any information you have. So far I think I have established that the bus leaves from the petrol station which is about 2 km out of Sapa , but I don't want to wait around there like a lemon for days on end waiting for a bus that never comes!! Thanks in advance to anyone with uselful tips.

January through March can be cold. Sapa is at over 4,000 feet and is much cooler than other places in Vietnam, and possibly clouded in.

crisaniaf, the bus to Dien Bien Phu goes every morning from the *bus station* in Sapa. That's in the center of Sapa. You can buy the ticket at the station, I think the price is 170.000 dong.
