We left Singapore on 08 Oct 2017, and reached Hanoi after a 2.5h flight where we met with our guide Mr John Phuoc. We soaked ourselves into the sight and sounds of Hanoi as we walked through the streets to our restaurant, where we had a great meal. Then we proceeded to Sapa on a sleeper bus. It was an unique experience - a bus with reclining seats that can house 46 passengers. We reached Sapa on a cool 16 deg C after a 5h trip. Sapa region is a beautiful mountainous area which was founded by the French. We will be going on a light trekking to our homestay.
