    Hi,
    Does anybody have recent experience with travel from Sapa to Dien Bien Phu and using the Tay Trang border crossing? I have been told to avoid the public bus if possible but am being quoted 300,000 dong for what I assume is private run minibus to Dien Bien Phu. Is the difference in price from the public bus really justified?
    Is there an ATM in Muang Khua which accept visa or mastercard, failing that a bank or reliable currency exchanger open on the weekends? May be worth me delaying the trip a few days if so as was planning to arrive on a Sunday. Thanks
