Is there a day train to Lao Cai (Sapa)?
There is one train that journies from Hanoi to Lao Cai and vise-versa in the day, but there is no sleeper train during the day. It only has seats and no air-conditioning. We recommend to not take this train.
Tip: We highly recommend taking the night train as it will save you time better spent visiting more places in Sapa.
