    Hi there
    I have an easy- trekking in Sapa (Vietnam). That’s very exciting and memorable. I slept on Ta Van village.
    The best time to visit Sapa is March and May or mid-September to early December when the weather is pleasant.
    In Vietnam, there are a lot of other famous trekking destinations
    Mai Chau (Hoa Binh)
    It’s approximately 135 km from Hanoi and 60 km from Hoa Binh. It is the closest destination from Hanoi where we can meet ethnic minorities and admire the superb panorama surrounded by a green valley and stilt houses.
    At Lac Village, travellers can have rustic overnight stays in thatched roofs stilt houses and enjoy the minority dances while drinking with long straws an alcoholic beverage called Ruou Can.

    Ba Be lake
    Where is about 300 km far from Ha Noi capital, about 50 km far from Bac Can city. Pre historic man called Ba Be lake “Natural best lake”. This area is a stunning view of terrace rice paddies, tea hills Palm leafs, waterfalls, Grottoes and beautiful stilt houses of the minorities. Not commercial but green, peaceful and quiet

    Cuc Phuong National Park
    Where is one of Vietnam’s most beautiful and important protected areas and easily accessible from Hanoi – only a 2 ½ hour journey by road. It is homes to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.Visiting the park is a terrific opportunity to get a close look at Vietnam’s nature and fees generated from tourism help protect the parks wildlife and improve the local economy.

    Dalat – the romantic city
    Where is a great area with comfortable atmosphere and climate, perfect for some outdoor adventure. The trekking trails here are a mix of easy to moderate. Be a real dirt bag! Spend 1 day in the pine forest and 2 days in the Jungle area to the south of Dalat

    Nam Cat Tien
    It is a national forest which located in three provinces Dong Nai,Lam Dong and Binh Thuan,has many rich and attravtive botanic and animals, is protected by the most strict methods.NCT has many kinds of millions years trees with more than 30m diameter. Stream,waterfall and mountain system is very gigantic and attracting…

    KonTum and central highland – The hard adventure places
    Arriving Kon Tum, we can visit a lot of Central highland’s mountain and forets’s beautifull sceneries such as Ngoc Linh mountain,Chu Mon Ray,Sa Thay wild forest,Dak Tre tourism region in Kon Plong district,hot water stream Dak To.

    I’m also going on the Big Indochina Adventure trip this June. I’m a 27 year old American traveling by myself. Is anyone arriving in Bangkok early or staying in Vietnam longer?

    They cancelled my trip on the 9th so I am going with Intrepid in a reverse trip, Hanoi to Bangkok. The later Indochina trip didn’t fit into my schedule.
