Puku 24 Hour Cafe
If you’re venturing out to Sapa, chances are you’ll be arriving back from an overnight train at the godawful hour of 4:30 in the morning. You can’t check into your hotel, there’s nothing open…or is there? We discovered the glorious Puku Cafe, open 24 hours a day. Is it the best food or coffee? Maybe not, but it’s OPEN! The atmosphere is pretty chill and it had plenty of plug ins for our laptops. The only weird thing was the pumping music at 5 a.m. (made for an interesting Skype call with my Mum), but I suppose the staff need to keep themselves awake somehow or other. It’s maybe a 10 minute walk from the train station, or you can talk one of the 50 million taxis waiting outside the train station.
