How to get to Sapa?

Bustickets, traintickets, private car

Every night multiple overnight trains leave from Hanoi Trainstation to Lao Cai Trainstation. You can choose for a either a hard sleeper (6 berths in one cabin) or a soft sleeper (4 berths in one cabin). Early in the morning you arrive in Lao Cai Trainstation. From here it is a 1 hour drive by minivan or private car. Please contact me for the actual prices of the traintickets and departure times.


A minibus or private car will pick you up in Sapa in the afternoon (about 4pm) and bring you to Lao Cai Trainstation. Here you will have time for a dinner. Multiple overnight trains leave for Hanoi Trainstation. Early in the morning you will arrive in Hanoi. Please contact me for the current prices of the traintickets and departure times.


In 2014 a brand new highway opened between Hanoi and Lao Cai opened. Every day different busses go from Hanoi to Sapa and the other way around. I woud be happy to help you arrange a busticket. Please contact me for actual prices and departure times of the different busses. 

Private car

A private car or minivan with a driver is one of the most comfortable ways of traveling in Vietnam. Especially if you are with a group (5-12 people)a private car can be a good option to go around. I can arrange private car's from Hanoi to Sapa and Sapa to Hanoi .Please contact me for more information
