I am planning to go to Vietnam in October, and I would like to know if I should add Sapa as one of the places to visit.
When I went to Sapa years ago (1995) it was something to see and experience. There were no hotels and you would stay with local families. Just getting there was an experience as infrastructure wasn't developed yet. I hear now there are hotels and it's become so commercial the experience is very packaged. I would recommend spending your time finding an undiscovered place, or cruising in Halong Bay where you can have a more individual experience. over 3 years ago
