Most families will only have two children in the cities, so the whole family can fit on the one motorbike. In rural areas like Sapa, eight children are not unusual.
Got to the Riverside Hotel, right on the river, which is very brown. Had to pass the Renaissance Riverside, which looks glorious, but our Riverside had a great ambience. We had two rooms, as a family suite. Mike can be seen below testing the bed, and Elly and Tim to the right.
The river at night was fantastic! All different colours.
