Hai Phong to Hanoi Destination Reviews

I am not writing this review for complaining because at the end the trip between cat ba and Hanoi was good. BUT we faced several issues before the departure : the meeting point in the voucher was not right (again), I emailed the bus company two days and one day before departure and I received no answer, I called the company several times the day of the departure and they were not able to give me information about the meeting point and finally a guy gave me an address and when we arrived he informed me that we had to wait till 4pm because the bus was too crowded (the departure time was supposed to be at 12pm...).

Bus pour les locaux pas chère. Celui que nous avons pris avec mon amie était très bien, la musique n'était pas trop forte. Il faisait un peu froid à cause de la clim mais il suffit de fermer les bouches d'aération au dessus des sièges et ça va déjà mieux.

Amazing service! Seamless connection from our hotel at Hanoi to our hotel at Catba, same for the returning trip. We booked the round trip (hanoi Catba) on 12go.asia before we traveled to Vietnam. Goodmorning Catba provided one bottle of water on our way to Catba (but not on the way back). The travel worked perfectly - each trip includes 1 bus -> 1 boat -> 1 bus.
