Traveling around Sapa- advice needed (8 Replies)
Shall be spending 3 days , 2 nights in Sapa at the end of July. Some say its best to rent a scooter to go around; some say its dangerous especially after a heavy rainfall. And since I am traveling with children, any possibility of renting a car to drive around instead of on a scooter? We love visiting markets and i was given to understand the Sapa market where the Flower Hmong women sell their wares is about 3 hrs away - would that be by car , scooter or walking?

Without a Vietnamese license you cannot legally drive either a car or a scooter. Nobody would rent you a car, but there will be plenty of people willing to rent a scooter. However riding illegally would mean your travel insurance company would not cover you if you had an accident and required medical treatment, hospitalisation, evacuation or repatriation. You could however hire a car with driver.
