I would recommend Lily's Travel Agency if you want to go Sapa. Lily is a very patient, kind & friendly person althougt i have changed my DIY itinerary many times & the very last minute changed the Sapa train to express bus. We made last minute changes due to many bad review of night train. Luckily Lily can made it. Thanks Lily!
We booked 3 group package with Lily's TA - 2d2n Sapa, 2d1n Halong Bay & Hou Lu-Tam Coc Day trip.
Sapa 2d2n :
I like Sapa trip very much which 1n in Hotel & 1n in Homestay (should call "Guess House" better as pic i attached). We reached Hanoi in the afternoon & took 10 pm night bus (Luxury Soft Bed) to Sapa. We managed to sleep few hours in the bus.
Reached Sapa before 5am & our local Hmong tour guide Mu met us about 6.30am.
Only a bit disappointed when breakfast is not in the package. We need to walk quite far to the restaurant for our meals...Tiring of walking about 1.8km (20 min) from our Sapa Unique hotel to the restaurant for our dinner after we back from Fansipan Mount.
We enjoyed our trip in Homestay (Guess house)- Mao is our local tour guide. She is very cheerful person. Advise to bring your own bath towel..Im just a bit querry whether we have reused the previuos guess bath towel. We have their "Happy Water" during dinner treat. They cooked simple yet delicious dishes for us.
In the next morning about 7am, we found nothing to do while we waiting for the trekking to take palce in 10.30am..So we bring their dog walked around the farming land..we are so luck to took part in the farming activity..Our unplanned DIY fabulous activity-really have fun !
Be careful..they are many sellers will come around you in Sapa town ..You need to bargain or just say: No,Thank you. You are advice to buy their local hand craft in Sapa town market. You can get a good price..remember to bargin.
Halong Bay 2d1n:
We chosed Apricot Cruise- medium cost. We 3 person were assigned the biggest room (1 king bed, 2 single bed).Thank Lily! Good meals given on board. We visited amazing cave & Titop Island. after dinner we enjoyed squid fishing..1 guess managed to get a big squid- super happy!
Next morning- Tai Chi, Kayaking & visit Pearl Farm.
Hou Lu-Tam Coc: Day trip
We chosed the good package 40usd/person- told will be good quality of transport & meals. However, i found out that couple from Australia who just paid about 25usd
/person ( Medium package) is in the same tour with us. So there is nothing different between Good & Medium package. Feel a bit down...because we have paid more...
In future, i would take all package in Medium quality to avoid any disappointed moment...
However if compare to other travel agency i think Lily's TA has offer a cheaper price.
So im still recommend to my friends who will visit North of Vietnam. I think i will visit Sapa again in September next year to see the yellow rice field..Sure will choose Lily's TA.
Thank you Lily for the delicious Rice Biscuits as our token..My son like it very much!
