Most of the tourists chose Train as the main mean of transport to go to Sapa in the past because of its cheap price and safety on the ways as the traveling time between car and train are the same. However, this thing has changed as soon as the Lao Cia Highway was built. Of course, for those who want to travel with a comfortable space can consider the following information:

There are 2 types of trains: SP (fast ) and LC ( slow ), depart from Ha station in the evening (19h – 22h) and arrive Lao Cai Station in the early morning (5am – 7am). You can choose to the soft chairs (about 280,000 VND / guest), hard chairs (150,000 VND / guest) sleeping chairs with air-conditioner.

How to make sure that you travel safely from after you land?

Whenever you travel to a far and distant place, there are some things that dominate our traveling plans. Things such as where to stay, how to travel and what kind of currency to take are some of the most important and biggest concerns.

Whether traveling with a group of people or separately, you will need to consider the basic living and transport options beforehand.

Obviously, travelling to a different land is hard, and it is actually even harder on you if you have no idea where you want to stay. As in, you should have an idea about how you will travel in the new country and where you will stay at least. Here is how you can plan ahead and save yourself the trouble when you land:

Research, research well: You will be required to research the area you will land. Be it the capital of the country or any other place, make sure you know your way. It would be better for you if you could find out about the transport services before you embark on your trip. In this way, you will be able to book your ride before you get there.

The general currency: Most people are fooled easily only because they are not aware of the currency and how the currency in the new country works. Read about the place, make sure you have your mind set on how much you will be spending on the ride. In places like Vietnam, the locals are hell-bent on taking undue advantage of the patrons, so be ready to haggle.

Airport transport: Whenever you embark on any journey, make sure that you have two things ready. One is the place to stay, and the other is how to travel. Most of the times the place you stay at will provide you transport, but make sure that you inquire about it first.

If they do not, look for bus service or some other kind of service that will help you get from the airport to the place you are staying. If Vietnam is the place you are visiting, you should consider hiring the Hanoi Transport for transportation from Hanoi airport to your place of accommodation.

Compare: One thing that most of us forget in the heat of the moment is what other places in the country offer us? When we travel, we are so mesmerized that we mostly jump at the first deal. No matter how tempting it is, remember to check what other establishments have to offer and get what you need by comparing the prices.

While travelling to a new place, always remember to get your belongings together and travel light, to keep yourself from worrying too much about your luggage. Next, remember to learn the local language. Learn the common phrases of the area and practice in advance to avoid being cheated while you are there.
