Passenger reviews out of total 14,333 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Comfiest journey I’ve had in SE Asia. Don’t sit in the front right seat it’s reserved for the “elderly” (aka the drivers mate). I sat there for 45 mins (as the bus was late setting off) and then before setting off I was told to move. They do have a sign which was produced from the drivers bag... maybe put this on the seat to start? But to be fair I didn’t mind moving and I had a very comfy ride. All the staff were lovely, 2 stops for toilet breaks along the way, the staff keep you well informed of the journey and the driver drove very well. I am 5ft2 and fit well in the seat, my boyfriend is 5ft8 and was a little squished but it was nothing in comparison to the sardine vehicles we endured in Laos. I slept for 3.5 hours (oops).

Was told to arrive at the office a half hour before (bus was supposed to leave at 6:30am) and I waited until 7:30am before the man at the office put me into a “luxury limousine” the van itself was cosy and great, but I was almost 2 hours late for my tour and had no idea if I was getting in a van that would take me to my destination or not.

A nice trip from Hanoi to LaoCai with the overnight train. No need to take the expensive private coach, this one was very good, with clean rooms, clean bed liner and clean shared toilets. Compared to many comments I have seen, the AC temperature was just right. Only 4 stars because the ac was a bit to noisy, and the bed a bit too small for me (1.85m). I recommend !

Extremely unorganised. Arrived at the office 45 minutes before, as instructed by the email to find the office closed. Did not open until 9 (when we were scheduled to leave). We were then put on a shuttle bus and made to get out by the side of the road, to have the guide put us back in a taxi to where we’d just come from?! We got on the correct bus 45 minutes late, were shunned to the back where one of our seats had a nail sticking out of it and the bus was so over subscribed people were having to sleep in the aisle. The toilet was broken and we made no bathroom break in 6 and a half hours. The bus stopped at 4:30am but we didn’t get off until an hour later. We were made to sit stationary unaware of what was going on but unable to move for the aisle being littered with backpacks/people. It is unreasonable to make people pay to be transported like cattle.

We booked the 1st class sleeper train and as far as I can see, apart from the carriage itself, everything looked like we booked a tourist cabin. We even had complimentary water, snacks and tissues. It seemed like pillow cases and sheets were fresh but not sure about the duvet though. It was a very pleasant ride and slept well. Toilets were clean enough. There was hot water and toilet paper. So overall worth 4 stars! Will do this again soon!

The cabin vip is nice and clean and the train was in time . but the air conditioning was too cold. There was too much noise in the train so we cannot sleep. There is a coffee in the morning but with milk. I can’t drink milk. It will be better to offer also black coffee. The toilet was dirty. It’s too expensive for this level of service.

The bus itself was totally fine. The blankets came in very handy, but they were really dirty. Sadly, I had some garbage from the person sitting in my seat before me (but I believe that's just bad behaviour from that person and not the direct fault of the bus company. We were told to come at 21:20, whereas the bus left at 22:30 and others arrived just a couple of minutes earlier than that... Other than that the staff was really friendly, bus driver did a good job and we arrived on time (4:30) despite the later departure. It was great to be offered the possibility to stay in the bus until 6:00. The Wi-Fi worked well. Generally I can recommend this company :) maybe next time I'll be luckier concerning the waiting and seat.

All in all, the ride was okay. The train station was easy to find and my friend and me had a cabin for ourselves. However the beds were uncomfortable and the train was shaking during the whole drive. In the middle of the ride a lady came to us and offered us a shuttle from Lao Cai to Sapa for 50 k each. She said we had to pay immediately and we trusted her because she was wearing a uniform of the train company. She only gave us a business card of a shuttle company but no tickets. When we arrived at Lao Cai, the driver from that company said we had to pay again because he couldn't find the lady. So we paid again which was not fair because we had already paid in the train!

Is not a compliment, but I think they simply can’t do it better. The train is very old, as the cabin aswell.. we reserved the “private” cabin (if you are 2 you pay for 4), the bunk was rock hard. They include a basquet with water, bananas and some biscuits, and a hitting jar, but no instant coffee or tea (wich you’ll appriciate so much at 5:30 in the morning, but also you’ll have to pay for it). The toilet was disgusting. I think it’s expensive for what you receive, but at this time is the best option to get to Sa Pa.

Probably the best way of commuting from Hanoi to Sapa at night. We managed to fall asleep only after having to argue with one of the staff members to stop talking so loud on the phone in the middle of the night. Overall, the cabin was clean and equipped with some necessary items to freshen up and feel comfy. The train left and arrived on time. We were offered the option of having coffee in the morning. We did not take it because the only option was with sugar. The experience can be very much improved in the train station in Hanoï. In the train, an option to turn off the air conditioning would be very good. Also, one or two USB plugs to charge the phones would be great with minimal investment.

Train station was easy to navigate. And we didn’t have to worry about collecting tickets from any tellers because of the e-tickets they sent us. We simply showed up, scanned through the gate and went to our platform. The train ride itself...everything was to schedule and we had no issues finding our cabin and bunks. I wasn’t particularly fond of the bed though. That sleeper train was by far the worst sleep I’ve ever had. The bed was very hard and the cabin was extremely shakey. Didn’t get a single ounce of sleep for the whole ride. But I guess this differs a lot from person to person because my friend said that she slept fine and had zero issues. A few things to note....I’ve read other reviews online about this particular train ride and only one mentioned bringing your own toilet paper. I brought some just in case and boy was I ever happy I did! The toilet on the train isn’t the greatest and it was completely soaking wet so the roll of toilet paper they had was absolutely soaked as well. On top of that there isn’t much toilet paper to begin with. So if you’re going to take one piece of advice from this let it be this one. BRING YOUR OWN TOILET PAPER. Another thing to note (wasn’t an issue for me but noticed this with other passengers) the hallways are very narrow so if you’re travelling with a wide bag (wider than your average 60L bag) it may be a bit difficult to get your things through the doorways. Like I said, this wasn’t an issue for me because I managed to squeeze through with little difficulty but it was a very tight squeeze and I saw people with large rolling bags having issues.

We paid $16 a person for a one-way 8 hour (21:40-05:30) journey. You’ll get everything you would expect for that price (mainly a bumby ride). Make sure to stock up on food, beverages, ect; especially breakfast, since none is served in the morning. Except for coffee (25.000 dong). Regarding transport to Sapa. We booked in advance but this was not necessary. Plentyfull busses, vans and taxi drivers stand ready at your disposal. If you would like to take a van ( +- 40.000 dong a person) make sure you get to front of the train station fast after the train arrives. Most of them will only leave to Sapa when full and if you come late to the party you could end up waiting untill a next train with new potential passengers comes in. Have a wonderful life!

Most of the trip went well, the driver didn't speak much English but was genuinely polite. We were hosted outside of the old quarter so we met the driver in the location provided when we made the reservation without any issues. We stopped twice in the way to rest and have some amazing natural fruit juices from the vendors in the rest stops. The only reason we don't give a 5 star review is due to the aggressive driving from Lao Cai to Sapa which is a dangerous looking mountain road. The driver would make some dangerous take overs with no visibility at all and sometimes even did turns completely on the opposite side of the road.

They gave us the wrong tickets . First they don’t want to help us and asked us to step in the wrong cabin. It’s because we keep ask for the wright tickets that they helped us . We had to take the train later .

The bed was harder than we expected in a 4 persons room. With a sleeping pil it was possible to sleep a couple of jours.

Family of 4, boys at 12 and 19 years. Thanks to details on tripadvisor we found the right building. The guy at the ticketoffice was late so that caused a little stress to all of us wantint to exchange our voucher to tickets. The sleeper was better than excpected, water, bananas and biscuits was included. Noisy, bring earplugs,bunks where ok. Take it as an adventure.

We were waiting in the indicated point till 06:25. No bus appeared. Then a van parked in front of us and a guy told us to come with them after asking for our voucher. We told him that we had booked a bus but he said no matter. When I asked if we had to pay some more the told me to pay to the driver. Only after we said we won't be paying anything else as we had already purchased tickets the driver agreed. We travelled in the last seats, almost no space for the legs, no room for our luggage. Contacted to the phone number in the voucher when we already were in the van and a man told us to wait for someone to pick us....so I don't really know who the man of the van was, but pretty sure organization was terrible.

The seats are clean and comfy. Totally worth the money. One thing though, make sure you bring ear plugs if you are sensitive to noises.

1. Departure delayed more than 20 minutes. The reason seemed to be some people who got on late. 2. The bus stopped on the way from Lao Kai to Sapa. Although it was nothing serious and arrived in Sapa in safe. However I worried if we had to walk from there to Sapa. Besides above 2 tour was normal. Thank you.

The train was on time, clean and the bedding was clean comfortable. The bunk was rock hard but it’s not a hotel so you can’t expect super comfort. We slept pretty well. Ticket exchange and boarding was pretty smooth once we asked a couple of officials for directions. The interior of the railway car was quite old but we were provided with complementary water, biscuits, fruit and soft drinks. We booked the private compartment for 2 and although expensive it was worth it for the privacy and space for our luggage

The trip was ok but the seats are not as comfy as the ones in South American long distance buses. They are slippery beacause they are made of artificial leather and much more narrow. Service was ok, bus safly drove us to Sapa

Staff were great. We arrived early and were allowed to sleep on the bus till gone 6am. These buses are not great for anyone tall - leg space is limited. I am 5’10 and would not recommend for anyone taller!
