This homestay was booked through our guide Shosho Laochai.
I left the laptop near the TV after a grueling 6 hours of trekking, extremely tired. Upon discovering the computer was not in my bag, I immediate contacted my guide.
She supposedly contacted the homestay who denied seeing the computer even though the owner watched us like a hawk, every move we made, while we were there.
I can only assume that the homestay and Shosho sold the laptop.
Funny thing: it's a special brand requiring a special charger which is actually with me right now, so it's not useable!
I have escalated the problem and contacted the tourist police. Will add an update soon.
Great homestay with a charming location and warm welcome hosts. In this homestay, I and my friends experienced local culture and it was so interesting. We also had a trekking trip with an ethnic guide who had known this area like back of her hand. This homestay is in a quite and peaceful valley and it is really different from commercialization Sapa Town with a flux of tourists.
