One of the most frequented rail routes in Vietnam is the Hanoi-Lao Cai sector, especially if you are headed for the Hills to Sapa. Since Sapa has no station of its own, the journey ends at Lao Cai, 38kms from Sapa. This means of travel is not only the safest, but also the most comfortable and enjoyable way to arrive at the famous tourist destination of Sapa. Trains depart every evening from Hanoi’s train station at 120 Le Duan Street, and arrive in Lao Cai the next morning. Travel via North Vietnam’s exotic landscapes between the charming cities of Hanoi and Lao Cai. Reaching Sapa could not but be more appealing and the journey offers visitors a lovely travel experience.
