Those who really want to get off-the beaten track should consider doing a loop through the North-Western mountains.
This can be done with a tour from Hanoi or even better, individually by motorbike.
Stops could include Sapa, Lai Chao, Dien Bien Phu and Son La.
It's a wild region of mountains, rivers, hilltribe villages and atrocious roads, a region trapped in a time warp.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
