Sapa to Ninh Binh Destination Reviews

Bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Oct 27, 2018
Lo único bueno es que te lleva de Sapa a Ninh Binh. El autobús tenía que recogernos en el Hotel Apollo de Sapa a las 21:45 y a las 22:10 aún no había aparecido. Finalmente tuvimos que ir nosotros andando hasta otro punto para cogerlo. El autobús era viejo e incómodo y el conductor iba poniendo música alta de forma aleatoria durante todo el trayecto. No sólo cuando había paradas, en todo el trayecto. Finalmente nos ha dejado a 2’5 kms del lugar establecido en Ninh Binh.
