Vietnam's capital is a city of wide tree lined boulevards with tranquil lakes and colonial villa's has a more sedate pace than other Asian cities. This is a city that offers something for everyone and will leave you wishing that you had longer to explore this enthralling capital.
From Hanoi, take the deluxe overnight Victoria Express train to Sapa; the train has made this area of Vietnam more accessible than ever - and getting there is part of the fun. Sapa is one of Vietnam's most intriguing destinations, set high in the mountains near the China border; it is most famous for its terraced rice paddies and colorful local markets. Home to numerous ethnic tribes and boasting the highest mountain in Indochina, visitors to the region will understand why the area was a favourite with French colonialists as far back as 1920.
