Bus from Sapa to Laos

We are going to Sapa in late November. We would like to go to Luang Prabang after and were wondering if anyone has done this trip by bus and what it was like. We didn't want to go back to Hanoi if we could help it and were wondering about the transport to Laos and how long it would take...Thanks

Hello

You can take a sleeping bus from Sapa to Dien Bien Phu city ( it is near border gate ), departure at 6h 30 - arrival at 5h am, and the take a bus from Dien Bien to Luang Frabang at 6h30 am - arrival about 19-20h.

Have a good trip

Any other way besides the sleeper bus, the death trap on wheels?

Thanks for your reply....am thinking now it might be safer and quicker to go back to Hanoi and catch a plane!!
