Day 3: Thac Ba - Hanoi

Well, the journey finally has to come to an end though it is quite sad to hear that. You will spend the last day of the tour discovering the surrounding regions of the lake. After the delicious breakfast, you will take the rest time for the best photos to save unforgettable memories on this gorgeous land. Then, you will take a smooth and quick ride to follow the road to backtrack to Hanoi. If you prefer to experience the thrilling ride on slightly bumpy roads, you can head up to small, lesser-known paths along the area of vast green tea hills.

thfffffffffIt is highly recommended to depart from Thac Ba early to come back to the office before rush hour. Or else, the whole crew will unluckily get stuck in traffic for hours even when you are 15 km far away from Hanoi. You will first return to the original hotel around 5 pm safely, then, you will leave to come back home later. The 3-day journey from Sapa to Thac Ba surely gave you an amazing off-road experience with full of fun.
