Foreigners need to get a permit from the Immigration office straight across from the exit from the airport in Điện Biên Phủ. Impossible to miss. Vietnamese can skip that step.

It's then a 250kkm each way trip to A Pa Chải. Scenery is pretty nice. Not up to Ha Giang, but pretty nice.

You can (and if you are a foreigner, probably MUST) stay with the border guards in their base in A Pa Chải. Accommodation is pretty basic, bu I have paid to stay in worse places. Meals (vegetarian options available) are provided by the border guards. There are homestays in A Pa Chải, but I was told I wasn't allowed to stay anywhere else. One 'extra' of staying with the border guards is that the fellow in the gate house had a semi automatic rifle. Not something I saw at any of my other hotels.

From the base, there is a road/track, most of the way to the hill where Border Post 0 is located, then it's scramble up through the woods to the border post. Triangular pillar with each country: China, Laos, Vietnam getting their name and emblem. You must be escorted by a border guard on your visit.

Very quiet and peaceful when I was there, but possibly busy when larger groups visit.

View are probably quite nice, bu low cloud meant I didn't see much.

Visiting is more about the experience and the journey than any particular view.

We season can be a risky time to visit with frequent landslides along the road.
