The train back to Hanoi leaves from Lao Cai Station. If you have time before you catch the train go for a walk to the Chinese border. It is only 5km from the train station quite interesting, although a little dusty. Lao Cai township is located on both sides of the river and initially we mistook it for China. To get to the border you just keep walking ahead with the river on your left. Beyond the border gates and check points you can see and feel the energy of China. If you have a multiple entry visa into Vietnam and a visa for China this would be a good place to cross. The Lao Cai station is fascinating with trains coming and going and much merriment.
