What you should know

How do I get there?

If you're taking the train from Hanoi to Sapa, the train departs from Ga Ha Noi (Hanoi Railway Station). We would recommend hailing a Grab or a local taxi if you're coming from Hanoi Old Quarter or the airport. At Ga Ha Noi, you will need to enter through Entrance B for the private trains listed here.

If you're taking the train from Sapa (Lao Cai) to Hanoi, the train departs from Lao Cai Railway Station. If you are coming from Sapa town, the train operators will provide you with a bus transfer from Sapa town to Lao Cai Railway Station. The shuttle bus will run from just outside Lao Cai station - a member of the train staff can show you where!

What's the best time to go?
The best months to visit are March, April, May, September, October, November
We recommend the above period because you would have:
  • Good weather
  • Cool temperatures for hiking in Sapa and boat trip in Halong Bay
How much time do I need?

The train journey between Hanoi and Sapa (Lao Cai) will take approximately 8 hours overnight, plus a one hour minibus journey between Sapa (Lao Cai) station and Sapa town.

What's the difference between the options?

How it works is that the different companies commission different wagons on the same train. So, even though you book a Chapa Express ticket and will get to be in a Chapa Express room in a Chapa Express wagon, you will be on a train shared with other train companies. This means that regardless of the train company you book with, the train is still fairly old and the rooms are the same size.

Key differences between Chapa Express and Livitrans:


  • They leave at different times. Chapa Express trains depart Hanoi at 10pm daily, and depart Lao Cai at 9:40pm daily. Livitrans trains depart Hanoi at 9:35pm daily, and depart Lao Cai at 8:30pm daily.

  • The Chapa rooms are slightly more premium than the Livitrans rooms - which means slightly newer rooms, better equipped toilets and more snacks.
