I plan on spending a day or two in Sapa and the markets. I'm not sure if I should book a tour or do it alone.
I know I can go alone, but I wouldn't know where to go once there.
Any advice anyone has please share. Trying to plan now for November.
Personally, you should spend two days for visiting Sapa. If you have never been there before, it is better to book a tour and have a guide for your trip because you don't have to worry about must-see places and unexpected troubles when traveling. 6 months ago
If you want to visit Sapa, you need more than 2 days to travel. You should book night train to transfer from Hanoi to Sapa which is safer than night bus. Furthermore, homestay and trekking tour are the best things in Sapa, you can check out : http://www.sapatrekkinghomestay.com 6 months ago
