    FYI http://www.captourvietnam.com/climate.htm

    Although August is the hottest month in Sapa, Temperature is around 13 to 18 between a day. Raining/drizzling is expected in August.

    I advice to get a rain jacket or water proof jacket and some rain cover for your beloved gear if u must shot under drizzling condition.

    Hope when we are there..the sky is clear and sunshine on us.

    I did some research and found that Cancau market is only open on Sundays.

    As we are planning to go on Monday, it will be closed.

    HI Serchim,
    The next 2 day after CB3 (2/9-3/9)will be our public holiday.
    Most of people go out of the city so Hanoi will be very wonderful in those day.
    I love our quiet Hanoi.

    hmm public holidays.

    so most of the attractions and landmarks will be closed?

    will be hard to shoot when there are so many people around right?

    is the holiday due to the Vietnam National Day?

    it will freeze ur nuts off... keke
    But the weather is cooling but not cold tho. But I think night temp could be as low as 10-12 degrees but having a jacket would be good. I am not sure how to pack for rainy weather tho...

    if i never remembered wrongly, there is no need to swop adapters. Not sure on it, had been 4 years since i went vietnam
    But I was thinking of extending the stay by 1 more day to sat before coming back to SG

    Slot gone ! Sorry a little 'kelong' as I gave it to a Malaysian (he called me real quick too...) as their numbers are currently only 9 pax...... this will make it a nice total of 10 pax from Malaysia.

    apologies to u guys who PMed me this evening....

    I'm sorry but the registration is closed because we've filled out the 40pax limit from the 3 countries.....

    many have asked why not expand the intake to say 50 or 100 pax.... the reason is very simple.....

    With 100 Indonesians, Malaysians and Singaporeans and possibly 20-40 more Vietnamese...... you can imagine the CROWD in rural peaceful Vietnam!!!!!

    But with a group of 40 foreign photogs and plus another 20 Vietnamese, its easier to manage logistically (eg split up into 3-4 smaller groups) without disrupting the environment and the locals..... some more, all this planning is voluntary by all parties involved...... by people who also want to have the time to shoot! heh heh heh!
