Cao Son market and Ecolodge?

by peterloic

I am planning to visit Vietnam in Jan 2009 with my exclassmates, all are male. We are keen on adventuring and trekking. I have read about Topas Ecolodge and Cao Son Ecolodge, it is quite new to me, especially Cao Son Ecolodge.

Plz advise me more info about this!

Thanks in advance

Two places about are off-the beaten ones. They are quite similar but Cao Son is geographical higher than Topas.
Topas is about 20-30km far from Sapa Town, Cao Son is about 60km.
Topas is eco-lodge, hence, no tivi, no radio, no telephone. And its far from Sapa, you probably feel lonely staying there. You could book a tour to the nearby ethnic village such as Ho village. Service is professional cause it's Topas's.
Cao Son is new Ecolodge thus a few tourist go there.It was build likes a house on stilts with basic condition. Cao Son ecolodge is located in a green beautiful palace, spending about 2 hours to go there is not a waste of time with many spectacular view enroute. From here, you could book a tour to Ngai Phong Cho (with traditional house of Colorful Mong ethnic), or go directly to Chay river port then boarding on the Chay village. Unfortunately, the road is in bad condition due to a water-electric factory construction. Service here is friendly and warm.

Cao Son is a new attraction and it is simply ideal for adventure-minded person. It would be a good time with the visits to the habitat of: Flower Hmong, Red Zao, Nung or Pa Di tribes.

Cao Son is located 80km from Lao Cai city. The road from Lao Cai to there via Muong Khuong district is quite good with magnificient views

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Like I said earlier, if you...

by mich97

Like I said earlier, if you take a walk in the streets, which is pretty sure, people of all ages, kids even more, will follow you and try to sell anything from postal cards to flags and maps. If you are not interested or already have bought something, don't be afraid to say so and don't be pist off of the insult that will follow your refusal (it doesn't appen all the time). You'll soon realise that vietnamese are wonderful people with a unique culture.

19-12 Market

by victorwkf

The 19-12 Market (Cho 19-12) is one of Hanoi's oldest and most interesting market. It is located just next to Melia Hotel along Ly Thong Kiet Street at one end and Hai Ba Trung Street at the other end (at the French Quarter area south of Hoan Kiem Lake). This market is made of two covered lanes of stalls crammed with fresh and live produce, dry goods, foos stores, kitchenware, clothes, sourvenirs etc.

Oh so lovely accessories!

by gypsysoul73 about Song

Song is an upmarket fashion mecca offering exclusive and unique designs. As soon as you step into the doors of Song, you are transported to the uber-chic streets of Paris. If you are willing to spend more than a song on accessories, bags, and even houseware then you've come to one of the best boutiques in hanoi. Don't forget to pick up a Luxe City Guide while you're there!

Overnight Train To Sapa

by neurochic

The overnight sleeper train to Sapa does not consist of sleep at all. You would think that it was a college dorm room. The train is quite loud mostly filled with young Europeans blasting their music and drinking. I even politely asked one of the groups to turn down their music and was met with laughs. Being on the overnight sleeper train was one of my worst experiences with fellow tourists. I don't know about you all, but my mother taught me always to be respectful of other's space and feelings. I would recommend that you bring ear plugs and your own pillow and blanket or even a sleeping bag would be nice. Once you are in your bunk the soft bunks just have a very thin mat, no blanket and no pillow. I can't imagine what the hard bunk was. Also the bunks are quite small, so if you are a tall gentleman you will be sleeping in the top bunk with your feet hanging off the edge of the bed. You are also given a piece of bread (french loaf) and bottled water. If you are traveling in spring you won't need an airconditioned bunk. I got my tickets through my hotel, but they got them through a Vietnamese Company called Friendly Travel. At the train station in Lao Cai I saw many tourists who had tickets from this company so I think they are a reputable one. A overnight ticket on a soft sleeper bed is $15 per person. Even though the ride stinks, once you get to Sapa you will find whatever hassle you put up with was definitely worth it.

Sidewalk Food Stalls

by frankcanfly about Food Stalls

Some of the best food in Hanoi can be found on the streets and sidewalks. Wherever you find a busy corner with plenty of people sitting on little blue or red plastic stools, stop and join them. If you get the soup, make sure you add some of the spices!
