Could you tell me more about interacting with local experience?
Hi Liv, Interacting with local people is that you will be trekking to the local people, have the chance to talk with them, try to do their farming work If you stay overnight at the homestay, there is the chance to cook the meals and eat with them

I would like to spend only one night at Sapa and two nights at Halong Bay. Out of three tourists, one cannot do the trek at Sapa. Can other arrangements be made?.
Dear SANJIB GHOSAL, For customized the program and do less trekking you should do a private tour. So we can send a car drive you around, walk a bit to the village and back town by car.
