Wandered up into the local market which we rode through on the way into Sapa or Sa Pa.
Everything was for sale, from machetes and swords, fabrics, clothes and jewellery to dried condiments and medicines. The produce and conditions was also much cleaner than in the lowlands where we last stopped.
The lowlands saw people sitting in …
The train arrived at Lao Cai, about 30kms from Sapa at about 5am, we were met by a guy from the tour company, and herded onto a minibus. Already pretty full so we had to squeeze in right up the back, and not really able to see much, so it was a slow boring drive.
Arrived in Sapa and checked in to our hotel, Holiday Sapa. Lovely huge room, …
Vikki was disrupted mid morning by a dodgy rattling bedlight above her head, followed later by a morning wake up call that was beyond belief, so much so that Paula almost wanted to smash the speaker in.

Lovely clean well appointed rooms. Beds were clean and king sized and the softest I have slept on so far. No noises permeated the walls except for occasional bump from rooms above.

Service terrific, very polite people who were attentive and non-invasive. I was told they would carry up,the stairs to your room if the lift was broken.
