08:00: pick up at lobby of the hotel in Hanoi; transfer to Hanoi Railways station for night Train to Sapa. Overnight on train.

Ban Ho village trek and hot springs - A good outing

Ban Ho village trek and hot springs - A good outing
A popular trekking and homestay option starts in Sapa and goes 25 km to the ethnic Tay village of Ban Ho, where stilt house homestays are available. The road hugs the side of the mountain with unobstructed views of the valleys and mountains to the south, with some truly jaw-dropping outlooks onto the stepped rice paddies climbing up the slopes. It can all be done via transport, but many prefer to trek it, and if you go with the right company, they will take you through villages in the valley rather than sticking to the main road. It makes sense to do it this way, because on a motorbike you'd be likely to drive off the edge for being distracted by the sense-tingling views. 

Walking will take a full day, six to eight hours, each way. If you are going under your own steam, head out of Sapa along Muong Hoau May road and just keep going.

My first Đêm Giao Thừa

My first Đêm Giao Thừa
(VOV) - The Lunar New Year (Tết) holiday can be a reality check for longer term foreign residents in Vietnam like me.

No one enjoys donning the tourist label indefinitely. Make an effort at learning the language, adapt to the pace and rhythms of a city, become a recognisable face to some of your favourite vendors and at some of your favourite haunts…it starts becoming possible to convince yourself you’re different.

The mania of pre-Tết preparations encourages this. Everyone is too busy with their own obligations and commitments to pay much attention to the visitors in their midst.
