6 of us intended to go to the above place for a tour.
friends please recommend a good tour agency.
go there and book.
i'm being serious.
you go with agency will get ripped off (both in time and in money).
might as well fly there to Hanoi and buy a local package tour for like one-fifth of what you would expect to pay in Singapore. Go to Sapa near Lao Cai as well. The train trip is overnight and a PITA but it is worth the trouble.
thanks for the reply.
sorry what is PITA.
pain in the arse
