  • Attention to alone packparker travellers,

    At this moment at Lao Cai Station, there are number of men who often wait for travellers and ask you to book the bus to go to Sapa. Firstly, they are happy to offer you a reasonable price and try to put enough passengers on the bus. Afterward, they come together on the vehicles and ask you for more money, hundreds thousand Vietnamese Dong, regardless the drivers and anyone else. If the clients react, they could be angry and beat you. They are jobless and try to find money at the crowded places. Our responsible organisations (police, tourism...) are trying to interrupt this problem.
