Sapa

Hiking boots?

I am going to spend a couple of days in SaPa in October. Do I need hiking boots or will my trekking sandals suffice?

If you have normal size feet, you can probably rent boots in Sapa. No, the sandals will not do - the treks are through mud, buffalo dung, many many rocks - pretty rough terrain!

I have extremely wide feet and I had a real problem. The only boots I could rent were just thin rubber ones which I just wore over socks - you can imagine how my feet felt after that trek! I did survive, but that was one experience I do not wish to repeat. My second trip to Sapa in Nov - I didn't trek at all because of this.

Bring your hiking boot. It will be raining around October sandals won't do.
