[Sapa Day-1]Taoyuan airport to Topas ecolodge Sapa Hotel

Updated: Mar 23



Date : 2023.12.16


I searched on Naver for directions to Topas Ecolodge, and it seems that the common method is to take a sleeping bus to Sapa and then transfer to the Topas Ecolodge office for a hotel shuttle. or take hotel shuttle from airport.

As I am scheduled to arrive at Hanoi Airport around 9:50 AM, might risky to take a shuttle from airport. Also I will only be staying for 2 nights, Considering that I have limited time and don't want to spend 5 hours on long-distance travel plus waiting time, I decided to ask hotel for the hotel private pickup service.





After inquiring via email,

Hotel van pickup service costs $305.

It takes about 5 hours. It's quite expensive, but I asked for it anyway.

But When moving back Hanoi from Sapa, I used the hotel shuttle. The cost was $50 per person.

Taoyuan Airport

3 hours later

Hanoi Airport







Many Korean companies at Hanoi Airport

Because the road to Sapa is long, I was worried there might be a lot of people at the airport causing long wait. I purchased US$ 26.69 Fast Track per person on Klook, but there weren't many people. (Waste of money)







After you met your driver, you have to walk from the airport to the parking lot.

van type is commonly seen in Southeast Asia.






I was able to stretch out and lie down because there was no one around, so I could go comfortably.



2 water for one person





The rest stop arrived around between 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours.





There is only one restaurant at the rest stop.



100,000 VND Pho around 3$usd






after rest stop, again 1 hour on the highway, 30 minutes on winding mountain roads by a stream, totaling about 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach the hotel





Attack on Titan downloaded in advance from Netflix. i am so behind in trend.
