Most people arrive at the thriving transport hub of Lao Cai after the overnight train from Hanoi.

If you have not had breakfast on the train, you may wish to have breakfast or a coffee at one of the cafes with a view across the Red River to China.

One of the many cafes right next to the bridge over to China is a smashing place for a bit of people watching!
