There are only two forms of transport in Sapa apart from scheduled tour buses – motorbike taxis and private cars. Rates are negotiable for both. Rates for car hire start at around 1,000,000VND for a half day hire, but realistically are usually 50% higher. Motorbikes start around 15,000VND for a short distance. You can also hire your own wheels to get around, but only the two wheel kind. Motorbike rental starts at $5 a day.
