How to get from Hanoi to Halong Bay

The following options are available to get from Hanoi to Halong Bay:

Bus

There are many bus companies serving this route but we recommend to not opt for the cheapest local buses but look for plusher buses instead. A couple of more bucks will buy you a soft reclining seat with sufficient legroom in an air-conditioned coach.

Local buses leave from bus stations around the city including Nuoc Ngam and My Dinh, and many luxury buses offer complimentary pick-up from your hotel in Hanoi.

Train

The main drawback is that it runs on Fridays only. Taking into account the duration of the journey, it is not going to be the most convenient one.

Taxi, or private transfer, is the most convenient option but comes at a price. You will be picked-up at your hotel and dropped-off at the location specified. It is a door-to-door hassle-free friendly service; it is also quite fast.

Do not recommend for tourists, almost no information at the office, almost no English, departure time different from booking, they drive you with some car to other meeting point outside of the city and then you go with the van. Driver was pretty reckless in my opinion. But the car was really comfortable and clean.

The busses are super luxurious. It would have been better if we had been told that we had to change busses, and we were nearly offloaded at the wrong spot 3 times. Luckily we were tracking with google maps and insisted on the correct drop off.

What I liked: - the vans were new and clean, and comfortable; - there was a 10-minute stop in a place with a clean WC, a minimart and cafe. What I didn't like: - It says in the ticket that the passengers who come first, can choose seats. It's not true. We (4 people) came first - 35 minutes before departure, and the first 10 minutes of the trip we were the only passengers. But they did not let us sit where we wanted, those seats had been 'reserved'. - When we left Hanoi, somewhere on the highway, we were moved to another van. No warning about it, no explanation in advance. - The driver SCREAMED at us to shut up. And no, we were not noisy, loud or anything, we were just 2 couples speaking in the back seats to each other. The driver's behavior is actually the main reason why I rate it 3 stars.

The vehicles are the best in town, super comfy, relaxing, clean and well maintained. My drivers did a great job when it comes to driving style and safety precaution, and the last driver was so helpful in returning to my hotel to pick up my phone that I forgot. However, it is a pity that I cannot give you 5 stars rating as much as I enjoyed the two trips with you guys, simple because drivers were delayed for more than one hour for the first ride, and 30 minutes for the second, not to mention that they cannot peak English at all, something you really have to improve to be the best of the best. Overall, very happy with your service, and will book again anytime I would be back in Hanoi, thank you! Ivan

We must be there a half hour early and wait an extra half hour there. Then finally the taxi came. It wasn't the limo we ordered. We rides in a to small car to another bus station and wait another half hour for the limo. The limo was old and wasn't as nice as the photos.

The pick-up point was unclear. Happily we choose the right spot. The guide was very friendly and there was a restingpoint where we were able to visit a clean toilet. The drop off was not at the busstation but somewhere near the road. That was strange

Nice vehicle but they were late picking us up and we had to stand outside in the heat. No communication from staff. We had to keep asking for details. They did drop us off at our hotel which was nice.
