Ha Giang to Cao Bang and/or Lam Son

Posted by gatoguts on 1/7/2019 at 22:35

I will be going to Ha Giang, and thinking of going afterwards to Cao Bang and/or Lam Son. Has anyone taken a bus from Ha Giang to Cao Bang or Lam Son? I know public transportation is virtually nonexistent from Dong Van to Cao Bang, but I assume there's a bus from Ha Giang city to Cao Bang and from Cao Bang to Lam Son. What are the bus travel times for these destinations? Also, for anyone who's been to these places, did you find them worth the effort to get there? (Ha Giang included)

There are buses from Ha Giang to Cao Bang, with change of bus in Bao Lam. Count 9-10-hours ride and about 22$

I suppose you mean LANG Son. If so, do not bother, better go to superb Babe Lake : buses Cao Bang-CHO RA + 17 km moto-taxi CR-PAC NGOI (about 5 hours), where you have all the homestays (the best is DUY THO), then beautiful one-day boat on lake and Nang River (grotto + waterfalls), then direct minibus Pac Ngoi-Hanoi (about 6 hours)
