Pingxiang-Dong Dang border crossing
Dec 2019
We took a taxi from our hotel in Pingxiang to the border for 30 Yuan (about 20km). Then we went through the Chinese and the Vietnamese passport control in 20 minutes. Doing that, you have to walk about 500m. When getting out on the Vietnamese side, a caddy will transport you 500m for 20000 dong to the taxi and bus parking. As we were four people, we shared a taxi for 1,000,000 Dong and arrived in Hanoi 2 hours later (the ride took 3 hours but Vietnams clock is one hour behind Chinas ;).
Hope thats helpful.

By road>>This is the one of the many China immigration control(Pingxiang Friendshio Gate) at China
May 2017
This is the China immigration by road from Hanoi to Nanning , China,when the bus or taxi arrive at the Vietnanese side of immigration control ,you need to disembark to walk over to this immigration ,roughly about 100-200 meter to this gate.
There is a electric shuttle ride if you wish to board for a small fee with your luggage or walk over DIY from Vietnam side to China immigration.
.The bus from Vietnam is not allow to travel/cross over to this China gate,however arrangement is make for you to board another bus manage by the chinese counter part to continue your journey to China at no extra expense.
You cross over the immigration at Vietnam border ,then walk over the China immigration control name as Pingxiang friendship Gate,as per normal procedure,surrender your white card(Vietnam) and fill another white card provide by the (China)immigration control.
After immigration control ,you would be guided to another waiting bus that will take you inside China proper to continue your journey to the bus terminal

Border town into Lang Son ,Vietnam
Jan 2016 • Family
The slow train from Nanning stops at Pingxiang . It's a 4 hour ride at 45 yuan. Pingxiang has numerous guesthouses , bus terminal , shops and good facilities for those that wants to spend the night if the border is closed at 7 pm . It's a standard 30 yuan taxi ride to the border crossing where the Friendship Tower is located . It's a peaceful and relaxing border crossing and one can take about half hour to stroll around the vicinity . Both sides of the customs clearance is very orderly and strict with cameras all round . No bribery of any form is entertained both sides should you arrived late and the border closes . On the Vietnam side one can take the minivans direct to Hanoi at the border or to the Lang Son bus terminal which is about 20 km away for other destinations like Halong or Cao Bang .

Nothing much to see
Small place. Nothing much to see. Took me about 20 minutes to go through them all. For those not interested in the history between China and Vietnam, I don't think it's worth the entrance fee and the traveling time.

Just a border crossing.....
....with nothing else. Train drops you off in Pingxiang, and you take an automobile taxi, a motorbike ride or in the back of what is basically a tuk-tuk with some labourers and catch a ride to the border there! Walk up a big hill, sopend a while at the Chinese side trying to get out and spend a LONGER while aty the Vietnamese side trying to get IN (UNLESS you had the foresight to accidentally leave a $5.00USD bill in your passport. That sort of accident can cause you to be cleared through Vietnamese Customs and Immigration almost immediately!!!!!) - I DIDN'T KNOW THIS, so, after about 90 minutes and a Taiwan bus tour group who got there AFTER I had arrived at the gate were being processed BEFORE I was, I started pounding on the glass and threatening.......suddenly - I was cleared! :-)
