Travelling up north

I have been travelling up to visit the provinces of north-western Vietnam. This trip has long been dreamed of so you can guess I enjoyed it to the utmost.
There were 8 of us in an 8-seater, cruising over 8 cities in the space of 8 days! We wished to make it longer but how long is enough for holidays anyway?!
Here're just some photos of the most liked places on the trip.

Will share more photos next entry.

Glad you had such a good time on your trip, Ha Xuan. Lovely pics. I especially like the bridge. Hope to see more ... What does "Cat Cat Sa Pa" mean? Take care. :-D

Thanks for visiting, Kris.
Cat Cat is the name of a village of H'mong people (a minority in Vietnam);
Sapa is the name of a highland town, in Lao Cai Province. This town is a famous tourist destination in the North with diverse cultures (of the minority peoples), cool weather and mountainous views, similar to Dalat where I live.

Ha Xuan, thank you for taking us along on your trip, albeit vicariously.
