    Along the way we stop in XA LINH for a two hour trek past many timeless hill villages which are home of the Hmong hill tribe people. Travelling across the MOC CHAU Plateau  we catch a glimpse of the many tea plantations and see the Black Thai hill tribe people.

    They belong to the same Thai ethnic group, but are  different from the White Thai in Mai Chau by their tradition and habits. O/N in SON LA.
  • DAY 3

    Son La - Dien Bien Phu
    The provincial museum and the nearby old prison are some of this hill town’s major sights. We have a chance to visit these before we leave for our next destination.

  • DAY 4

    Dien Bien Phu - Lai Chau
    The journey north continues on to LAI CHAU Town, our base for exploring the surrounding areas These back roads are a great way to explore the real Vietnam. We see very few other travellers, mostly rural dwellers who are just as interested in finding out about our lives as we are of theirs.

    After checking into hotel, we embark on a boat for a two hour trip along the DA River, passing through the stunning mountain landscapes. The pace is very relaxed, a perfect way to observe the local lifestyle close up. O/N in LAI CHAU.
  • DAY 5

    Lai Chau - Sin Ho - Tam Duong
    Today we continue venturing into northern Vietnam with the next stop being SIN HO which is home land of  the Red Hmong, Kho Mu, Mang and Dao ethnic minorities. They are settled there longtime ago and still retain their traditional culture and habits.

    The trip to SIN HO is occasionally suspended due to the restriction of the local authority. Departing Sin Ho we make our way past the hilly region to TAM DUONG. This timeless town is surrounded by  stunning mountain backdrops and lush tea plantations. O/N in TAM DUONG.
  • DAY 6

    Tam Duong - Sapa
    The scenery of the north is unequalled although the conditions are very simple. After breakfast we drive following the main artery of trade in northwestern region. This bumpy road links to many hill towns and villages. At an elevation of 1,500 meters, Sapa was founded in the early years of the last century as a hill resort for French administrators when the heat on the plain became unbearable.

    After checking into hotel we can soak up the fresh climate as much as we want by spending our time wandering around this charming town and some legacies of the French period. O/N in SA PA.
  • DAY 7

    The huge range of FANSIPAN boasts Vietnam’s highest mountain and lends an alpine feel to the area surrounding this hill station. Today we have enough time to visit the bustling SA PA Market where the Red Dao, Black Hmong, Tay and Xa Pho ethnic minorities converge from the nearby mountainsides and valleys to trade their goods and buy provisions.

    We get well off the beaten track as we embark on a walk to discover this beautiful mountain region. Along the way we traverse several rustic villages and see many mountaineers doing their daily works such as logging, herding buffalo and tilling the field. O/N in SA PA
  • DAY 8

    Sapa - Bat Xat - Laocai

    The ethnic minority people are frequently seen in this hill town and small vendors along the street sell local textiles and handicraft. We have time to visit DONG VAN Town  before continuing to MEO VAC which is conquered by the Lo Lo and Pu Peo ethnic minority people.

    They still retain their age old cultural traditions and are recognisably distinct from each other by their dress.
