Sapa is about more than 5 hour-driving from Hanoi. From Hanoi, there are some ways you can get to Sapa like bus, private car, motorbike, train.
For adventure travellers, travelling by motorbike is an awesome option. You can rent a motorbike in Hanoi Old Quarter easily and travel on your own or you can book a tour from Hanoi with a motorbike tour group. Make sure that you have advice from the motorbike renting shop before you travel in Vietnam because the traffic in Vietnam is can be a problem for you.
Travelling to Sapa by night train was an option for many travellers in the past because in the past we did not have a highway from Hanoi to Lao Cai for Sapa. Travelling by train is a safe way and you may save 1 night because you travel at night time so the travelling time is sleeping time.
However, it is not comfortable to sleep on a train as it is bumpy. There are some good trains for you like Victory Train, Sapaly Train, King Express Train, Fansipan Train…etc.
You can travel from Hanoi at around 10.00 PM and arrive at Lao Cai Station around 6.00 AM the next day. From Lao Cai Station you can take a private car or a bus to Sapa Town. It takes about 1 hour.
Now, there is a highway from Hanoi to Lao Cai so that is easy to travel from Hanoi to Sapa by a bus or a private car.
It takes about 5.5 hours from Hanoi to drive to Sapa. That seems better than an overnight train as you do not have to sleep on a night train ( of course, in this case, you have to pay for a hotel for an overnight). In the day time, you can see the view on the way. If you are are a big group you may take a private car or van but if you are a small group you can book a luxury bus which starts daily from Hanoi to Sapa and from Sapa to Hanoi.
Until now there is no flight from Hanoi to Sapa but we may hope in the future there may be a flight from Hanoi to Sapa so you can enjoy the trip more if you like a relaxed trip.
