We planned to only spend one night in Sapa, but as soon as we arrived, we knew we would want to spend more than two days in this beautiful city. The cool weather and fresh air was a welcome change from Hanoi.
After our trek, we were exhausted and balled out and booked the nicest hotel in Sapa according to Tripadvisor (which cost about $40 USD ha). The rooms were significantly nicer, as was the food included. But most notably, the service was amazing. We told the man at the front desk that we wanted to explore Sapa's incredible waterfalls, but were too nervous to take motorbikes on our own. Within 15 minutes, two guys showed up at our hotel with motor bikes. They took us on a ride in the mountains for a few hours, stopping at all the best waterfalls and waiting for us while we explored. It only cost us $6 each! It was our first time on a motorbike and it was SO fun! We will have to drive ourselves next time. We stopped at Thac Bac (Silver Falls) and the Love waterfall.
