How to get to Sapa from Hanoi

Why Go to Sapa

Sapa is the favorite destination in Vietnam for those interested in trekking, homestays and the culture of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities. Established as a French hill station in the 1920’s, Sapa boasts incredible views of steep valleys lined with terraced rice paddies and on a clear day one can see the country’s highest peak - Fansipan. There are numerous trekking tours based out of Sapa with many including homestays at the local ethnic groups. Travelers can also visit the colorful Bac Ha market and browse the beautiful embroidered goods of the tribes from the surrounding hills that converge here on the weekends. Don’t forget to bring a good jacket as during the winter months this is one of the coldest places in Vietnam and recently has even been known to experience snowfall.

From Hanoi to Sapa

There is currently no airport in the region so travelers make the journey from Hanoi to Sapa via train or bus. It has long been one of the most popular overnight trains in the country with a number of more luxurious private train cars offering travelers varying degrees of comfort and relaxation on the night train. The train comes to a stop at Lao Cai station, about 35km from Sapa Town and there is no shortage of transportation options to transfer between the two.

From Hanoi to Sapa by Train

Hanoi to Sapa is the most popular and unique train route in Vietnam as it is serviced not only by Vietnam National Railways but also by more than a half dozen private train operators of varying degrees of comfort. Some are simply a cleaner, calmer and more relaxing way to spend the night traveling from Hanoi to Sapa while others are surprisingly luxurious and offer amenities you would not expect to find in a developing country. The level of comfort is reflected in their prices and most travelers say that the cost is certainly worth arriving in Sapa relaxed, well-rested and ready to explore the countryside. Vietnam railways has soft berths with 4 beds per cabin for USD$19. Prices on the private railways vary from $33.75 for VIP Sleeper cabins with 4 berths to $86.85 for VIP Sleeper cabins with 2 berths. All private trains will provide you snacks, drinks and a much softer bed to sleep in. They will also have wine, beer and meals available for purchase which are of a higher quality than the standard Vietnam Railways fare. The most luxurious for traveling from Hanoi to Sapa is Victoria Express which has a private lounge at the Hanoi railway station and their train cars include a bar, dinning room and library.

Trains from Hanoi to Sapa depart from the Tran Quy Cap street entrance to the Hanoi railway station, it should be noted that this is not the main entrance on Le Duan street. Passengers with the private railways to Sapa will need to exchange their vouchers for actual tickets at the respective company offices which open 1-2 hours before departure. Your voucher will give directions to the office which will be either in the Hanoi train station or across the street nearby. The majority of your fellow passengers will also be exchanging tickets and staff members at the station or other ticket booths should be able to point you in the right direction. English language skills may be very basic so remember to speak slowly, smile often and you will find the proper counter.

Departure times for the night train from Hanoi to Sapa are 9:40 and 10:00pm. All private train cars are attached to normal Vietnam National Railways trains and run on the same schedule which gives them arrival times of 5:35 and 6:20am respectively. There is a third train from Hanoi to Sapa that departs at 6:10am and arrives at 3:45pm. This train offers only a few dozen soft seats and the rest are hard wooden bench style seats which are quite uncomfortable for journeys of any length.

The train station is in the town of Lao Cai, about one hour outside of Sapa. Options for this transfer to Sapa include taxi, public shuttle and private charter. Shortly before arrival a woman will walk through the train offering to sell you tickets for the public shuttle to Sapa. Prices will vary widely from under $5 to more than $15. We can never advise to buy a ticket before actually seeing the vehicle for this sort of thing but there have not been many reports of scams at Lao Cai station. Should you choose this mode of transport be prepared for the shuttle to be overcrowded and driving to be a little too fast for the very winding roads. Another option is the regular taxi, be ready to share this with as many passengers as can fit for between $20-$30. The easiest way is to hire a private charter van or car to Sapa which can be arranged for at around $35-$50 depending on the number of passengers

From Hanoi to Sapa by Bus

A number of bus companies operate bus services from Hanoi to Sapa. Most will either depart or offer to pick you up from the Old Quarter and around Hoan Kiem Lake and will drop you off in Sapa Town but exact locations will vary. The trip should last about 6 hours, departing in either early morning or late night. There are no bathrooms on the busses but most will make one quick rest stop during the trip from Hanoi to Sapa.

From Dien Bien Phu to Sapa by Bus

Going from Dien Bien Phu to Sapa there are several small companies offering minivan and bus services. The journey to Sapa on the winding and less than perfect road lasts about 10 hours and should cost under $10. Enquire at your hotel for booking.

Where to Stay in Sapa

Your choices for lodging in Sapa can generally be split into two categories - hotels and homestays. Hotels range between cheap affairs aimed at budget local tourists for around $5 per night to luxury hotel and spas that can cost hundreds of dollars. Sapa itself is quite small with only a few main roads so there is really no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ area to stay. New hotels are popping up every year and these are usually the ones which can be counted on to have fully functioning amenities.

Homestays in Sapa and the surrounding communities are popular among travelers looking for a more unique experience. Some feel like real family homes while many more closely resemble a youth hostel in which you sleep on a thin mat on the floor and go without luxuries such as heat and running water. Usually locally cooked meals are included with the homestay but you should ask ahead if you want truly authentic food otherwise you will end up with toast and eggs for breakfast.

Things to Do in Sapa

Trekking around the trails around Sapa can be a great way to experience both the scenery and culture. You should hire a guide through your hotel and many trekking tours in Sapa include a one night homestay. Most guides are local women and don’t be surprised when you struggle to keep up as you traverse the slippery paths. Your guide may be sporting homemade flip flops, but sturdy footwear is recommended. More serious hikers may want to try to climb up to the peak of Fansipan - Vietnam’s tallest mountain. A guide is required for this and authorities control entrance to the route.

Independent travellers may want to rent a bike and explore the towns and trails near Sapa on their own. Motorcycles can be rented from your hotel and the tourist information center in the middle of Sapa has good maps. Many towns have pay stations where you can park your bike and head off on the local trails. During the high season you certainly won’t be alone and there will be plenty of people around to guide you should you need directions.

On Sundays, the nearby Bac Ha market has a great selection of local arts and crafts as ethnic groups from the surrounding area converge for the day. The most colorful group is known as the Flower H’moung who get their name from the many layers of colorful clothing they wear. The market is best known for traditional embroidery which makes for a great souvenir.

Other activities include cooking classes to learn local H’moung dishes, tours to the nearby waterfall known as Heaven’s Gate and paddle boating around Sapa lake. Tourism is the main focus of Sapa so you will have no problem arranging any activity from even the most basic guesthouse or cafe and you may even be surprised by the level of English spoken by most people as it is much higher than average for the country.

Onward Travel from Sapa

Trains from Sapa to Hanoi depart from Lao Cai station at 8:35 and 9:10pm and will cost the same. For those wishing to travel to Laos you may arrange for a minivan or bus to first take you to Dien Bien Phu (10 hours) and then onward to Laos. We would recommend taking the morning bus from Sapa to Dien Bien Phu, enjoying an evening in there and then continuing on in the morning. This may be preferable to taking an overnight bus from Sapa as the road is not very good and you will not get much sleep. Tickets for the entire journey should be purchased jointly at your guesthouse and please remember to get a receipt.

Passenger reviews out of total 16,454 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.

For the majority of the journey, there were alarming sounds coming from the outside of the carriage - a series of explosive bangs, clangs & dragging noises which reverberated through the carriage, making it sound like the carriage was about to fall apart! It was difficult to sleep because it was so loud. The driver made a few sudden stops throughout the night as well, which jolted you awake. The staff were grumpy if you didn't want a coffee (for 120,000 VND!!) The berths were fairly comfortable though & the free snacks/water were appreciated. Also, the process of buying & collecting tickets was made easy through 12go Asia.

Overall our trip was very very good. Easy picking up tickets, attendants pointed us to correct train car, etc. Cabin was clean, with clean sheets. We saw that there was WiFi but never got the password. Train bathroom was questionable but not the absolute worst. No toilet paper when we first arrived, but it was refilled the next morning. There were 2 sinks separate from toilet so you can brush teeth, etc.! We got a 2-person private cabin, so the mattresses were doubled up, firm, which I liked. Train is rocky and loud so bring ear plugs! Would do it again!

The whole cabin had an underlying toilet stench which took a long time to get used to (unfortunately the only option). The ride was too bumpy, I consider myself a deep sleeper and even I woke up 3-4 times at night, while some in our group weren't able to sleep at all. The AC didn't turn on for the first 3rd of the trp 2 starts only because it got us to sapa on time and the bed/pillow/sheets looked clean.

Reached hotel 30 minutes earlier than expected; fast n car is comfort. Driver need to focus on driving typically drive along the Sapa hill route. Making numerous call when driving at hill road is dangerous. My parents was sat at the end seats, very shaky n bumpy because of the uneven road. Like a roller coaster. Recommend driver may slow down when passing the bumpers road in future. Overall my experience is good, driver driving behaviour need to improve. Have a bit of interaction with passengers would be great

★★★★☆
The train bed is small but just sufficient space to sleep. The toilets are not the cleanest so if you want to use, use it before sleeping. Someone will knock on your door to wake you up in the morning - to sell you coffee/ tea/ hot chocolate. There is a toothbrush set, some crackers and wet wipes provided on the train as well. Also refrain from bringing a large luggage as the room had not much space to walk. 12go.asia is reliable! Managed to get my tickets at the location they mentioned as well.

The driver was quite arrogant and very grumpy - quite scary driving as well - passing on corners etc. It was meant to be first in first served but there was a seat reserved which I didn't think you could do? The driver told us to move because a group of 4 were getting on and they wanted to sit together so my daughter and I had to sit separately which I didn't quite understand. But nice and comfortable van and on time. However, unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this company.

Driver put our backpacks (containing clothes and electrical equipment) in a muddy puddle while rearranged the luggage to put some other passengers cases in the back. We had stop to change a flat tyre, which is obviously not the drivers fault and cannot be helped. However, to make up lost time he then proceeded to drive in a very dangerous manner, over taking large vehicles on windy mountain roads in heavy fog and almost causing multiple crashes by overtaking in small gaps on the highway. He said he would drop us off at our hotel in Sapa, when we arrived in town he rushed us out of the van again dumping our backpacks in the muddy street and gestured up a hilly road, saying "hotel". We arrived after a 10 minute walk up a steep road with all our luggage. The bus was very comfy, but the driver needs to be reprimanded for his rude service and dangerous driving.

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).

Really hard matrass and aircondition did not work properly. It was burning hot until 1 A.M. when it popped back on. I slept only two hours because of it. Nevertheless a great experience :) the staff looked really busy and a bit stressed. Probably they had a lot of work

★★☆☆☆
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.

The trip was ok, the bus was not what was advertised online photos. The driver took some risks with traffic, he travelled a little fast for the amount of traffic on the road. other than that it was ok.

Efficient, clean, comfortable, on-time and a convenient way to travel hassle free from Hanoi to Sapa. Would take it again and recommend it. Luxurious? No. But absolutely great way to go.

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.

Considering that this railway is from 1900... and average speed is 40kph, you can sleep. One thing, sometimes the air conditioning is really too cold. We used paper to limit the air flow.

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!
