|Sapa Town from far|
Minh’s friend picked us up. While waiting for other passengers to fill the bus, I looked around... Lao Cai town was still at sleep...
|When we just arrived @ Sapa Town|
I did not see any activity in the street except at the train station. This station is also the bus stop. The big tourist buses from Hanoi depart and arrive here. The station woke up when the trains arrived. Crowds of passengers and cars/mini buses waiting for them gathered in front of the station.
|Thanks for cooking lunch, Minh! Delicious!|
|Wood for cooking|
Plus... Anh Phang served rice wine to make our lunch even more perfect!
JCảm ơn rất nhiều!!
Thac Bac Waterfall
|Can you see us on the bridge?|
Slowly-slowly, we arrived the bridge which is the best spot for photo shoot with the background of the waterfall... We had to queue to take pics there!
|Thanks to automatic camera|

The rain had not stopped, and we decided to go back anyway… The rain, wind and the thing we did not anticipate was the fog… Luckily rain stopped in the middle of the way, and closer to town, it was dry… We looked silly of being half wet! The wind made us freezing….
|Thanks for being a good guide & new friend, Minh!|
While walking to the meeting point, we checked restaurants along the road and decided to dine at the Vietnamese restaurant called Red Camellia. There were not many guests that evening. In fact, we occupied the second table other than a table of four French ladies.
|Left: steamed veggie spring rolls. Right: veggie noodle|
Each of us chose one dish and we shared the meals. Steamed vegetable spring rolls as appetizer and the vegetable noodles were good. Good service. It is a small town and again Minh knows almost everyone working in this restaurant.
|The Romantic Sapa|
Sapa in the evening…. It was foggy even though it was in June. Weather was a little bit cold. The fog made the evening so dark.
|Sapa is identical with fog... Bloody damn too romantic!|
