The first thing you need to know is how to get here. You can come to Sapa on an organized tour or on your own. To book a tour, look for tourist agencies in the center of Hanoi. If you want to come to Sapa by yourself, the best option is the overnight train from Hanoi. It stops in Lao Cai, from where you can take a minibus to Sapa.
The length of your stay will depend on what you want to do. If you only want to visit the town and its surroundings, a couple of days will suffice. If you want to go on some trekkings you will need more days. The longer you stay in the area, the more unspoiled towns you will be able to visit. It is up to you.
The offer of accommodation in Sapa is quite varied. If you did not book in advance, go to Sapa center and look for a place to stay. It should not be difficult, unless you come on a weekend (the market day).
