Land transport is the only way to travel to localities within Lao Cai Province. In recent years, good road have been building and upgrading to link Lao Cai City with all district townships and big centers such as Sapa, Bac Ha, Muong Khuong…

• Lao Cai – Sapa: It is 37 Km from Lao Cai to Sapa and this portion of the national road 4C is the best road in Lao Cai province which takes about an hour to go uphill. There are many vans operating along this rout from morning till late afternoon.

• Lao Cai – Bac Ha: The distant is about 70 Km and the road condition is good. However upgrading work is being taken at some part. It take almost 2 hours to reach to Bac Ha and there are just a few local buses operating along this route.

• Lao Cai – Muong Khuong: The distant is 45 Km and the road condition is good.
