Sapa Retreat 5 Days/4 Nights

Sapa is a former French hill station situated in the valleys near the Chinese border. Its high elevation of 1, 600 meters creates its cool climate. This inspired the French to build villas there as a summer retreat. Today, Sapa still attracts visitors for its stunning scenery, comfortable climate, colorful markets, and a variety of ethnic hill tribes living in nearby villages. This is the perfect itinerary for those seeking a retreat but wishing to stay in the luxury of a hotel in Sapa Town rather than in a home stay.
In brief:

Day 1: Hanoi - Sapa

Day 2, 3: Sapa
Day 4: Sapa - Hanoi
Day 5:  Hanoi

Day 1: Hanoi - Sapa

Our trip starts with an overnight train journey from Vietnam's capital city to the border town of Lao Cai. The accommodation for tonight will be in soft sleeper berths on express train (standard cabin includes 4 berths per cabin).

Day 2: Sapa (B, L)

Today we start with a walk to the H'Mong village of Cat Cat. Later we drive out to the settlements of Ta Van and Cau May. As we walk to the villages nestled in the valley below Sapa we meet some of the local ethnic minority people on their way to and from Sapa. These people include the Red Zao, Hmong and Tay. Tonight we spend a second night in our hotel at Sapa town. 

Day 3: Sapa (B, L)

Today we walk to Ham Rong Mountain for a panoramic view of Sapa. From here we drive out of town and commence an hour-long walk to Ta Phin. Ta Phin is home to the distinctive Dao (pronounced Zao) community. From here we return to Sapa for lunch and a free afternoon. 

Day 4: Sapa - Hanoi (B)

For trips in this area on Sundays we have an extension to Bac Ha, home to the Flower Hmong minority people. (On all other days we visit the market at Can Cau on Saturday, Coc Ly on Tuesday). A visit to the Sunday market is a must. The colourful Flower Hmong converge here to trade and exchange goods. This afternoon we transfer back to Lao Cai for the train journey to Hanoi.

Day 5: Hanoi

We arrive at Hanoi station early morning. Our guide will arrange a transfer back to your hotel.
