Sapa, Ha Giang & Ban Gioc Waterfall

Code: HG2205
8d 7n


A trip to the north of Vietnam through very little tourist areas, to get a glimpse of deep Vietnam, rich in surprises. The tourist interest of the province also comes from the presence of many ethnic minorities (Tày, H’mông, Dao, Nùng, Cao Lan, Hoa, Lô Lô) with their villages nestled on the slopes of the hills or lost in the valleys. The best time to visit Ha Giang Vietnam is between May, June, October and November. The roads, sometimes long and difficult are offset by the beauties of the landscapes.
