We opted for the 2d1n tour to sapa including cat cat village and fansipan peak. Cat cat village was amazing and so was fansipan except for the weather we got while up there. You spend 6-7hrs on the bus one way but it’s totally worth it. Because of the travel time I try and do the 2 nights 3 days if you can and there’s plenty to do while up there. Our tour guide and organiser were very helpful, harry came to the bus in hanoi to make sure we got on okay and that we were all ready to go which was nice.

I'm really glad I participated. Compared to the hustle and bustle of the Old Quarter of Hanoi, the streets of Sapa are calm and attractive to me. The morning pick-up bus picked us up almost on time. Travel time by sleeper bus is about 5 hours, but you can sleep because you can stretch your legs. It wasn't painful. As you approach Sapa town, there is a mountain road with sharp curves like Irohazaka, so people who get sick easily should be careful. The hotel I stayed at was beautiful and the shower had plenty of hot water. Fansipan on the second day was covered in fog, but the pure white scenery was fresh and interesting. The Cat Cat village guide who was in charge of the guide for the two days was a really nice person.

Really fun and activity packed. The sleeper bus was relaxing. Our hotel Chapa Dew was only okay and food was ordinary but location was close to city center. Amazing experience to be surrounded by a sea of clouds. Local female Hmong Tourist guide was excellent and very accommodating. Speaks good English. This tour is worth it!
