5. Note to have the perfect trip
According to VietNampeace’s Fansipan experience to have a fun and safe trip, you should carefully prepare the following:
- Weather: Conquering Fansipan successfully depends on the weather a lot. If you go on a rainy day, slippery, muddy roads will cause you a lot of “trouble”. Especially if there are too many clouds, you will not be able to see the majestic, dreaming scenery of Sapa from above.
- Health: Whether on Fansipan by cable car or road, you still have to climb a range of 600 steps, so if your health is a bit “weak” then you should practice before making the journey.
- Essential equipment: If you’re planning on climbing, you can’t afford to lack specialized insurance. In addition, you should also bring warm clothes because the higher you go, the lower the temperature in Sapa. Lastly, there is a porter and a map so you don’t get lost.
- Food: You should prepare your own food because the way to Fansipan is very scarce. Especially for those who intend to climb, the prepared food needs to be instant food and for a long time. Remember to bring enough water for the journey because it is difficult to find fresh water on it.
- The last thing to remember is that you remember to clean up your garbage to keep the natural scenery beautiful.
After climbing a fan, if you fall in love with Sa Pa, who is dreamy and wild, do not hesitate to hire yourself a small “nest” to linger to continue exploring here. If it is too urgent and you do not know which hotel to rent, remember to immediately VietNampeace to book quality rooms with super lovely prices.
