8D7N Hanoi, Sapa and Fansipan trip with full-fledge flight at >$1,500 for 2

If you are looking for a budget destination, how about heading to Hanoi, and adding in Sapa, Fansipan for an extra spice to your tour?
The husband and I were there for a 8D7N trip (disclaimer - not my honeymoon. I haven't plan one yet hehe)
Most people exclaimed - so long!? What's there to do?
It is indeed long if we were to stay in just Hanoi alone. After all, Hanoi was pretty boring as we could cover Old and French Quarter in a day. Our days in Hanoi were spent on food, facial and massages 😛If you are planning to tour Hanoi only, a 4D3N tour would suffice.
But we inserted a 3D2N trip to Sapa and Fansipan which was notably the highlight of the trip!
And, I'm proud to share that our expenses were around $1,400 for two which includes a full fledge flight via Vietnam Airlines instead of a budget flight ðŸ˜Š and our anyhow spend also can expenses at ~$250 (we ate whatever we like, and also had pampering facial and massage sessions!)
Here's a rough guide of our itinerary: …

Take charge of your health

In my previous post, I explained why there is a need to buy the best hospitalisation plan. Note: that is if you can afford the premiums.

Purchasing a hospitalisation plan is to protect your wealth from hefty medical charges but the key is to protect your health.


I'm always heartened to see the Government spending all efforts to encourage citizens to eat well, exercise, retire well etc. I came across the Screen for Life website, which is really wonderful in guiding you the type of health screenings and immunisation you need to take at your age.


Have you also attempt to walk 10,000 steps a day? On a long day, I will hit 20,000 steps. Usually, on a work day, it's 8-9k. At work, I try to walk about as much as I can, doing simple things like filling up my cup or taking toilet breaks. My bf has also set an Exercise Day on 27 March, so that we can take part in StepsChallenge.sg Bonus Points Day! Got their free steps tracker watch months ago as well, just not wearing it daily :P but I'll try!

I'm probably not the best person to advocate exercising since I'm really nua and lazy. The last time I ran long distance i.e 2.4km was in JC (that's like 9 years ago) and I can't rmb when I last swam, but I've been trying to incorporate simple stretching moves daily :)

There're so many free events conducted by the Government that we can tap on! Let's take charge of not just our wealth but our health too!

    1. hahahah! It's not difficult at all! I could clock it just by walking from Dhoby to Orchard (detour a bit to shop) and then walk to my bus stop. Also clocked it when I was shopping at IT fair (walk around and around and around) and then walking to City Hall MRT. Can clock one la! :D

  4. For myself,I use a multi sports GPS watch as my activity/steps tracker =) For weekdays, I can clock at least 10k steps comfortably by taking steps instead of escalators :)

    You gave a big clue to your age (my guess is you are about 22-25) from this post, haha. The most important take away message is to include healthy living in our daily activities and being more active here =) Good post besides on your usual personal finance blog post =)
