Tour Overview

Day 1

Day 1: Hanoi

Upon your arrival at Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi, our driver from Friends Travel Vietnam will be waiting to welcome you. You'll be transported to our office in Hanoi Old Quarter in a private car, providing you with a comfortable journey through the city, lasting approximately 40 minutes. Enjoy some free time at your leisure. In the evening, get ready for the "Real Hanoi Street Food Experience," an extraordinary culinary adventure exploring the finest street food selections from markets, food carts, street cafes, and hidden gems that are both challenging to locate but undoubtedly worth the effort. The tour concludes at the train station, where a car awaits to transfer you to catch the overnight train to Sapa. Feel free to leave any luggage not required for your Sapa trekking at our office before your departure. Accommodation: Deluxe soft sleeper bus Meals: Dinner.
Day 2

Day 2: Sapa

Embark on an extraordinary journey guided by our knowledgeable local English-speaking minority guide, exploring the enchanting landscapes of Vietnam. From the vibrant terraced rice fields to the authentic allure of indigenous homes, Sapa is a destination that will capture your heart. This region is home to diverse ethnic groups such as the Dzay, Dzao, Tay, Xa Pho, and Hmong, each contributing to the rich cultural tapestry of Northern Vietnam. Discover the unique traditions and flavors of these communities as we traverse through each village, trekking along the rice paddies and buffalo trails, immersing ourselves in the authentic, less-touristy experience. Share traditional meals with local families, actively participate in the cooking process, and enjoy a sense of togetherness. As the day concludes, indulge in a 30-minute foot massage, enhancing the local experience. Accommodation: Sapa Homestay in Lao Chai. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
Day 3

Day 3: Sapa

Awake to a new day and prepare for a refreshing leg stretch. Following a delightful traditional breakfast, bid farewell to the hospitable homestay family as we resume our trek. Our path meanders along narrow trails skirting the picturesque rice fields, spanning the Muong Hoa River. A fantastic spot along the way awaits us for a delightful lunch. Embarking on the afternoon leg of our trek, we savor the mesmerizing landscapes before returning to Sapa town by around 4 PM. Enjoy some leisure time in Sapa to explore the town at your own pace. Shower facilities are available, and dinner will be served at our hotel around 6 PM, offering an excellent opportunity for shopping and acquiring local souvenirs. Later, we journey back to Lao Cai train station for your return to Sapa. Your bus is scheduled to depart between 9-10 PM, so please be ready at the meeting point 30 minutes before departure. Accommodation: Deluxe soft sleeper bus Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
Day 4

Day 4: Lan Ha Bay Experience

Upon your return to Hanoi via the sleeper train, you will need to independently make your way back to our office, as pick-up service is not provided. Our office opens at 6 AM, offering a delightful breakfast, coffee, and a refreshing shower for your convenience. After breakfast, we depart from Hanoi for an overnight boat excursion on Lan Ha Bay. During the journey, witness the vibrant farmlands and observe the daily activities of Vietnamese villagers tending to rice fields, transporting pigs to the market on bicycles, and plowing the fields with their water buffaloes. 8:30 - 8:45 Gather in your hotel lobby for the arrival of the guide and driver. Once they arrive, we commence our transfer to Hai Phong city. 12:00 Take a break at the harbor as Le Theatre's Cruise completes its final preparations. We can board shortly afterward, enjoying a welcome drink. 13:00 Indulge in a delicious lunch in the dining room while savoring the breathtaking view of the distinctive limestone towers through the windows. 15:15 Embark on sampan boats, guided by some local residents, to explore the Dark & Bright caves – two stunning caverns with a vast enclosed lake on the other side. Swimming is also an option in this scenic location. 17:00 Return to Le Theatre's Cruise to witness the daily spectacle of a beautiful sunset, accompanied by happy hour at the bar. 19:00 Experience a special performance of traditional Vietnamese music in the dining room or on the top deck, complemented by a delightful dinner. Before retiring to your cabin for the night, you may choose to visit the bar, the spa, or join the crew for some squid fishing. Overnight on board in Lan Ha Bay.
