Take note that power outages are very common in Lai Chau—. The ATM at the BIDV bank is on a generator, but your internet options will be non-existent at those times.
The Agribank is across the street from the post office — there's an ATM here, but it's frequently out of cash so don't rely on it. As elsewhere in the Northwest of Vienam, it's safest to start with enough cash in your pocket to get you back to civilisation.
The post office is across the street from the bank, a bit down the hill. Internet is available at 3,000 per hour.
The bus station is just under a kilometre from the town centre, along the road to Sapa, on the left.
