I am traveling with my sister to the North of Vietnam in November and we'd love to go to Ha Giang. Has anyone been there that could provide some tips for traveling around/what to see/where to stay?
I don't think it will be a good idea for us to rent motorcycles since we are not really used to riding.. So I was wondering how else we could go around there?
Thank you in advance for your help!
Hey, hello!! I've been there a few month ago and was the highlight of my year travelling around Asia. Was simply amazing. Very difficult to describe it.
You MUST rent a motorbike, maybe practise a little before... Those mountains dererve a little loop on two wheels.
I have a Travel Diary of my journey and a lot of info about Ha Giang. Here's the link. (Is in Spanish, sorry... But the map is very usefull) Look at the photos. Heaven is there.
In Ha Giang sleep at ¨Ha Giang 1 Hostel¨, the owner is an angel on earth. And in Du Gia at ¨Du Gia Homestay¨.
Hope you enjoy it as much I did!! 6 months ago
