What problems you may have when travelling to Sapa and your solutions

Problem 1:
Travelers are frequently led to foreign currency exchange venues by station bus drivers. At these exchanges they are given a poor exchange rate, e.g.: 10,000 VND for US$1 rather than standard 19,500 VND. In addition the driver receives a commission from the exchange seller.
