Laos & Vietnam – Part 4A

I had a wonderful night sleep and had very tasty breakfast in the hotel. The morning was cold and misty. Our guide was already waiting for us.

Our first spot was Sa Pa Garden. Just a few minutes’ walk from our hotel, there is this beautiful garden. Other members from our group were not too keen to climb the steps. But I insisted. So our guide accompanied me.

The climb was worth the efforts. It is very well maintained garden with lovely landscapes. But the problem was, as we reached some height, the visibility became very poor. We could not see beyond 50 meters. So, we decided to turn back. On the way, I purchased some chestnuts. Chestnut biscuits are a local delicacy and had that too.
