My Vietnam trip had to be canceled last year, so I am re booking.
I was going to take in Sapa, but I now have doubts. I really don't like being hounded by people. I don't care if they are nice or polite. I just don't want someone jabbering "buy from me?" as I am walking.
I am looking at Ha Giang now specifically the Pan Hou eco lodge.
My plan was a night train to Lao Chai, get to Bac Ha on Sunday, get out to Pan Hou after market. Tour from Pan Hou for 2 nights, then start the driving loop with driver/guide back to Hanoi, stopping along the way to visit other towns.
Is the scenery as beautiful in Ha Giang?
Should I base camp at Pan Hou for 2 nights or just keep on the move doing the loop back to Hanoi?
