The 1-day Cat Cat trekking tour usually combines with other attractions, such as Lao Chai Ta Van trekking. There are many local agencies that you can choose from if you’re interested in taking one.
Besides taking an organized tour, you can find many local villagers who work as tour guides. I was surprised by how well they could speak English.
Cat Cat village accommodation
Where to stay in Cat Cat village, Sapa?
If you’d like to wake up with fresh air and a beautiful mountain view, I’d recommend choosing one of the Cat Cat village homestays.
Fansipan Terrace Cafe and Homestay is an excellent choice for those who love nature but also comfortability. The location is great as it’s close to both the village and town, and the rooms offer beautiful views.
This house is made of wood, so it gives the place a rustic feeling and fits the mountain atmosphere perfectly. Chapi Homestay is located in the quiet part of the town, so you can enjoy a peaceful and cozy time while staying here.
