Where to sleep in Sapa ?
Nous avions réservé une chambre sur Booking pour un prix vraiment dérisoire 3 euros par nuit pour 2 : Rosie Guesthouse. Petit chambre chez l’habitant, possibilité de prendre un bon petit déjeuner le matin pour quelques sous de plus. Très sympa mais légèrement excentré. Pratique, si vous louez un scooter.
What to do in Sapa ?
- Sapa Treks
Sapa is famous for its many treks in the mountains and rice fields. You will see that when you approach the centre, several women will offer to take you on a trekking tour and sleep in their village. We decided to do the trek on our own, and it was really great!
We rent a motorcycle for 4 $ per day, a real motorcycle with speed this time, in Sapa, they do not have automatic, it is not bad because in car the climbs would have been very difficult.
First of all, to access the different villages, you have to pay 3 $, a barrier blocks the way. No other way possible, at least not by motorcycle.
We first pass through the village of Tâ Vân, the first village, where we stop for a coffee to admire the view. The rice fields landscapes are magnificent on the way.
Then, the village of Bân Hô, still very pretty landscapes on the whole motorcycle trip. Once in this village, we park the bike in a small restaurant and walk around. On the way, we come across a beautiful waterfall, to find it ask for "water falls" on your way, we can tell you. There, the place is so not tourist that we are alone in front of this transparent water. Neither one nor two, I jumped in the water. Mmmh, pure happiness!
- Cat Cat Village
A village that can be visited on foot down from the centre. Really very touristic but cute, entrance fee about 3 euros.
