Sapa to Dien Bien Destination Reviews

The guys at Sapa were really helpful at getting us on this bus, and gave us a reasonable idea of what was going to happen. The bus itself was reasonably comfortable, and made a dinner/bathroom break around 9pm. There are top and bottom seats - try to sit up top, as people will end up sleeping all over the floor. As mentioned by others, the bus did not arrive in Dien Bien Phi until 5am. However others we were travelling with made their connecting bus to Laos. Also, the drivers speak very minimal English, so don't expect to know what's going on with the frequent stops that are made!
