For 9:30pm train, you will reach Lao cai at around 5:30 in the next morning.
Tulico tourist will sell the van ticket inside the train station cost 25,000D. The price for van from LaoCai to Sapa is 20,000-25,000D for tourist, standard price. Tulico van is newer and cleaner. However, you can still get a lot of choices outside the Lao Cai train station which cost 20,000D for the same journey.
The van will wait until it filled up before it makes a move to Sapa. Unless you have advance booking for your accomodation, tulico tourist van will drop you at Darling Hotel.

Train from Hanoi to lao CAi depart on 9:30pm.
Buy the ticket from Hanoi train station.
You have 2 choices, buy the normal train ticket or the tulico train ticket. Tulico is an express train, cost higher of course.
I took the hard sleeper berth, which is 6 berths in a cabin, cost me 146,000 Dong. If you ask me why taking a hard sleeper, besides of budget constraint, it is because I am easily fall asleep regardless of whatever material I sleep on. Thus, soft sleeper or hard sleeper makes no different for me.
The train tooks 8 hours to reach Lao Cai. Around 8 hours travelling time.
