Time for indulgence! For two days we were cruising in Bai Tu Long Bay. We visited a limestone cave, sailed through a local floating village and went kayaking. We admired the beauty of hundreds of islands scattered across the seascape. Our farewell to North Vietnam could not have been better.
A two-day trip to Moc Chau, during which we explored tea plantations, climbed up to a spectacular cave or visited an ethnic village. At homestay, we tried more local food and also got a chance to do some vietnamese tea tasting.
A day trip from Hanoi to one of the most famous pilgrimage site in Vietnam. We began our journey with a row-boat ride, visited a complex of pagodas and Buddhist temples, admired some nice views of limestone landscape and eventually walked through crowds to the Perfume Pagoda.
From Bac Ho we moved over to Sapa. Despite cold and foggy weather, we visited a couple of villages where different ethnic minorities lives, climbed a few waterfalls and eventually enjoyed a little bit of sunshine on top of Fansipan – the highest mountain in Indochina. Besides that, we kept exploring the Vietnamese cuisine and again ate a plenty of amazing food.
During two days, we explored the lifestyle of northern Vietnam. We stayed in a local homestay in Bac Ho town and visited an amazing market where people could buy anything from vegetables to buffaloes. We also climbed through rice terraces in surroundings and explored small settlements of Hmong minorities.
