Xuan May was my super sweet guide for the Hands-on-Handicrafts workshop. She was easy to talk to, and always smiling. From her, and the other girls working in the shop (Mici and Mao, I believe) I learned so much about traditional crafts in Sapa - batik, weaving, and embroidery. We all cooked a meal together, and they even modified the... More

Thank you May Chong for the tour guiding and trekking of Sapa. We walked the 2D1N "Nature View and Village Trek" which had stunning views. Most of all, May from one of the villages herself was knowledgable about all the different villages and understanding when we felt a bit tired from the walking.

So, be warned, when they say you're going on a trek. You're going on a trek. We did the two day nature view trek with a homestay and our trek literally started off the side of a mountain (and by stepping over a guard rail). The trek was literally down the side of a mountain. There was no path, there... More

We were in Sapa for Mt Fansipan and organized the train ride from Hanoi, bus transfer, trek, extra porters through Sapa O'Chau. All in all everything was rather seamless: the exchange of train tickets with vouchers, meeting our driver at the train station and picking us up at accom by our guide. Attention given to us by Asua, our guide,... More

After spending 3 days in Hoi An, visiting MySon and travelling around the DaNang area, we headed North and went to Sapa. Sapa O'chau organised everything for us and everything was very well planned and organised. They arranged a night-bus Hanoi-Sapa, a 2 day trek with a homestay, and a night-train Sapa-Hanoi. In terms of transportation, the bus was so... More
