河內 Hanoi – 元陽 YuanYang – 沙壩 Sapa – 下龍灣 Halong Bay

河內 Hanoi – 元陽 YuanYang – 沙壩 Sapa – 下龍灣 Halong Bay

相隔3年,柬埔寨之旅原班人馬再度向 Indo-China 出發——這一次是到越南北部及跨界到中國云南省的元陽去。隨行的有精通地理的阿寶、冒險王及攝郎阿順、悠哉悠閑的阿國,還有我這個第二攝郎。

Day 1:

第一天出發,我還打著敗仗,帶了一大堆的的藥包,坐了大約3.5小時的機程,安全抵達 Noi Bai 機場。從這里到河內(Hanoi)大約35公里。一路上的感覺也沒什么驚喜——高速道路一條。

丟下背包,咱們就在河內老闀溜達,邊走邊看,結果在 West Lake (Hồ Tây) 附近解決了咱們在河內的第一個晚餐。

Day 2:

一大清早,街上還未看到繁忙的摩多車時,咱們蹲坐在街邊,享用了越南人的 pho ga (雞絲河粉)。街上還有廣播音,我想就好像吉隆坡舊時的麗的呼聲。

接著,往 Perfume Pagoda 出發。Perfume Pagoda 乃其中必到之景點之一,另外,你可以選擇到 Tam Coc 和 Hoa Lu 去,當然如果時間充裕,你兩個地方都可以去,嘻。

乘坐小舟渡過小江,歷時大約45分鐘,就可到達 Perfume Pagoda 山腳下的碼頭。聽說,每年農歷年初會有廟會慶典,屆時你就知道什么是“人山人海”。

咱們可真是的,忘了買纜車票,結果導游帶著我們繞走山路,哇靠~ 真累!還有,我發現全部劃槳的還是女生呢!小費給少了,還會跟你要多…… =_=”

傍晚,在酒店沖了涼,就趕往火車站了。我們要往老街 (lao cai) 出發,暫時告別越南。

Day 3:

在火車的大約9個小時還算睡得好,因為我以前念書時期都是乘搭火車返鄉的,不過,越南的火車可真是比 KTM 大好多。;p

老街(越南)與河口(中國)只是隔著一條紅河,走路過橋就是另一個國度了。友人說這就好像從新山走到新加坡那樣,呵呵。關卡的公安還蠻友善的,聽到咱們一行馬來西亞人,還真熱情款待,給我們特別通道過關,省了不少時間,感激不盡。

過關后,趕上直通元陽的長途巴士(沒冷氣的),這款巴士比我們的 mini bus 的容納量還要小。六小時的車程可不簡單,一路上崎嶇動蕩,車上還有人吸煙,隨地吐痰……有點惡心。途經邊界時,會有邊防公安上車檢查,跟我們要了護照以便記錄咱們的行蹤。

不說你不知,咱們從睡醒到下午4點多,我們一直挨著空肚子,四人只吃了兩包 20g 的葡萄干,哇靠~

終于抵達元陽了,check-in陳家旅館之后,阿寶是第一個跑下樓到隔壁吃米線,還有臭豆腐。然后,咱們步行到龍樹壩觀看日落。碰巧遇上一班香港旅客,一起沿著梯田爬上小坡,蠻驚險的。夕陽下,咱們吹著寒風,真的好冷。快快拍了幾張照片就收工,走下山了。

Day 4:

今天一早,咱們就往多依樹出發了,司機大哥在天未破曉前就把我們帶到攝影地,霸了個好位子,呵呵~還真要感激他。可惜我技不如人,天氣又不美,沒拍到什么好照片,可惜可惜。

看了日出,咱們逛勝村的趕集。然后回陳家歇息一會兒,傍晚往老虎嘴出發,觀看最壯觀的黃昏梯田!除了現有的觀景臺,我發現當局還正建著另一個在下方,比較靠近梯田的觀景臺給攝影發燒友。可惜,天公不作美,老虎嘴變溝渠水,haiz~ :(

Day 5:

一早就搭了第一班巴士回到河口,過了關,回到了老街,再往第二高原出發——沙壩。沙壩也是一個比到的旅游勝地,它給我的感覺就好象馬來西亞的幾個避暑勝地一樣,好舒服的氣候。今天的天氣特別好,咱們也趁機在市中心溜達了整個下午。那里還有一個旅客咨詢中心,非常方便。

晚上,學人家拍 stars trail,結果被一對美國新婚搞垮了…… 只有以下的爛成績,唉~

Day 6:

這一天最不可思議,我竟然背著5kg多的包包,走了6個小時的山路,現在回想起都怕。搞得我差點兒舊病復發,喘死了。告訴你,千萬不要拿這個“翻山越嶺”的tour, 現正值冬月,一路上也沒什么好風景。

晚上,趕上火車回河內了。

Day 7:

今天出發到世界自然遺產地——下龍灣。咋聽之下,這地方很有氣勢,不料,去了一趟真的是大吐苦水,在船上悶得發瘟,或許適合大家來度蜜月的,呵呵~ 不過,想起咱們去 canoe 的那一幕,還是蠻緊張的,因為沒經驗。真后悔當初沒在大學里學,哈哈。

在船上,還好遇上一班年紀接近的老外背包客,一位超強的丹麥女人,真是被她 bull shit 到傷痕累累,只有阿寶才招架得住。啊,還有一對新婚的越南人。臨別秋波,大伙兒來張大合照。

Day 8:

終于結束吃了睡,睡了吃的兩天一夜灣上游,從下龍灣碼頭,直往河內歸去。巴士上的導游還用越語跟我打招呼,她以為我是越南人,哈哈!

傍晚,越南朋友帶我們游夜市場,并買了一些道地食物。咱們也吃了一頓 cha ka la vong,燒魚加米線,請認清老字號招牌,別進錯黑店,呵呵。

Day 9:

上午,咱們到訪文廟——越南最早的大學。那里,還可以看到康熙皇帝的題字呢!

另一位越南朋友率咱們游了胡志明故居一趟,多虧他們熟悉 short cut,我們免了排長龍。可惜,沒時間瞻 uncle Ho 的遺體,聽友人說已經“縮水”了。

過后,咱們就乘的士回酒店,不幸的遇上小車禍,司機撞倒了一位越南安蒂,后被安蒂叫出來,咱們見況不妙,趕緊塞了車費給司機就匆匆下車溜了,好險。對了,順道一提,如果你要省錢及避免受騙,可以截Mailinx的士,因他們是官方的的士公司。

后記:

告別河內,這擁有1千年歷史(至2010年10月10日)的城市,咱們的馬六甲也沒這么悠久的歷史。
在河內,要越過馬路,說易不易,說難不難,因為河內市區有大約3百萬輛的電單車。當過馬路時,你可要保持速度,千萬不可突然停下或沖上前;還有不要太相信紅綠燈,有時形同虛設,要小心。

當然,不忘附上我們的行程、預算及一些聯絡方式供有心到河內或元陽的攝友們參考,請按這里下載(感謝阿寶提供的行程初稿)。任何疑問,歡迎留言,能解答的,小弟一定盡力。

  1. Very detailed information. Surprise that Vynce could be so patient and putting so much effort in doing this, hehe ;p

  2. also appreciate my travel mates who helped to complete those information. ^^

  3. Nice job! Now do it again in english so i can read it!

  4. @Alfonso Mingo
    Haha, thank you for dropping here.
    You could try the “Google translate” at top right on the page. ;p

  5. How did u hike to those flooded rice terraces in Yuan Yang ? any local tours or just walk on ur own ? Did u go for hiking & homestay in Sapa village ? could u pls provide me info on how to book for a hiking tour to these tribal village ? sorry to bother u with many Q coz i found that local tour tru website is so much expensive compared to ur itinery. Would appreciate for ur info, thanx.

  6. @sam
    Thank you for your comment, I hope the following information could help to clear your doubts.

    YuanYang:
    - Yeah, on our own foot, step by step, you have to walk carefully with well balancing skill, otherwise, you will drop into the flooded terraces.
    - FYI, we just walked to 龍樹壩 and explored ourselves and luckily bumped into a gang of HK travelers who had hired a local tour guide. Actually the starting point is just beside the road, you could try your luck too. Too bad I didnt use GPS to record it down, otherwise I can share with you the point where we started to climb up. Best idea to you is to hire a local tour guide. ;)
    - BTW, I have a photography tour guide’s contact, please PM me if you wish to contact him.
    - You can get a map of tourism spot at YuanYang from your hostel reception.

    Sapa:
    - Yes, we went for hiking but no home stay as we were running out of time.
    - I just checked our record that showed US$15 per head for our 6 hour trekking plus a picnic lunch.
    - You could ask from your hotel reception like what we have done. I am sure they will have plenty of package for you to choose from.
    - You could also request for a local guide so that u can get to visit their village.

  7. Thanx for ur detailed info. Sorry i do not know how to PM u in this site. Could u pls email me (sam5494@hotmail.com) ur photography tour guide contact (phone & email,if have). For local tours in Vietnam i think i only need to ask when i reach there coz those that’s been promoted on the web is way out of our budget, say more than USD 100/head for the hiking in Sapa. Again, thanx for ur reply. Btw we’re using the same weapon D90…lol.

  8. @sam
    No problem, I have emailed to you.
    Glad to know that you’re D90 user also, haha. Do not forget to show us your photos when you’re back.
    Enjoy your days! ^^

  9. Forgot to mention that, a Malaysian would need a VISA to visit China. More information please goto http://www.visaforchina.org.my/ .

    You may now download an application form or just apply online at the link above.

    I have been to Hanoi, and had a night out in ship for the Halong Bay trip, yet I had no time to pay a visit to Sapa. :(
    I really love Sapa’s scenery.

  11. 你好,
    謝謝你的分享,照片好漂亮~
    可以問您, 有關從老街出發到達元陽的火車費大約是多少錢嗎?

    你全程大約的花費會很多嗎?
    期待你的回复,謝謝

  12. @annie
    火車由河內去老街 US$25。

  13. hi, may i know how do u cross border to he kou when u reach lao chai? just walk?
    where do u take bus to yuan yang? is there any bus station there?
    can pm me the tour guide contact? thanks.
