Travel by Bus to Sapa!
Sleeper-Bus, VIP-Bus or Limousine-Bus
If you don’t romanticize badly over traveling by train, take the bus instead! Bus is the fastest way between Hanoi and Sapa, 5-6 hours if you go by Limousine-Bus and 6-7 hours if you go by Sleeper-Bus or VIP-Bus. You leave in the morning and arrive in Sapa soon after lunch, with still time left to do a shorter trek down to the homestay. The bus back to Hanoi picks you up from our office after your trek.
The bus will do two stops along the way. 15-30 minutes each, on the specific stops, where you can use the restroom and buy food. The bus drivers are experienced and the highway is newly built, but be aware that the traffic situation in Vietnam still can be pretty bad. Sapa Sisters can’t guarantee the quality of this bus.
