Some important notes

In John’s trip, he mentioned very much  useful experience and thanks to this, we hope you can enjoy  your trip at the best level

  • You should always bring a raincoat when you visit Sapa; also travelling by motorbike needs cautiousness because the way is covered with quite a lot of fog, dangerous and hard to move also
  • Weather in Sapa is particuarly changed quite fast in a period. So, today can be very nice, but tomororw it might have thick fog, so please don’t forget to carry types of necessary clothes
  • Reaching Ninh Binh, you should visit Bai Dinh pagoda before Trang An. If you go for Trang An first, you will feel very tired because Trang An is too large, which discourages you to explore other locations
  • Walking in Bai Dinh pagoda is very tiring because it is very large , around 4km, so you should grab an electric car instead
  • In case you don’t have a high-end camera, you can also use your smartphone to take good photographs
