How to Get from Hanoi to Hanoi Airport and Other Destinations
Hanoi is the second most populous city in Vietnam and the capital of the country. Tourists from all over the world come here all year round. How to get to Hanoi or from it to the cities nearby? You can do this in three ways: order a taxi, book a transfer or use public transport.
Taxi from Hanoi
Taxi in Hanoi is one of the most popular ways to travel around the city. You can get here from Noi Bai Airport for about 27 dollars. Noi Bai city is located 35 km from the capital of Vietnam. So the trip by taxi from Hanoi to the airport or vice versa will take about 45-60 minutes.
By this type of transport, you can get to Halong Bay for about 90 dollars, and to the Mai Chau district for 123 dollars. The prices are approximate. The total cost will be announced only upon arrival at the destination, and it will be affected by several parameters: the distance of the route, the number of stops, baggage and passengers, time of day.
If you do not want to deal with scammers, it's better to use the services of a licensed taxi company.
Transfer from Hanoi
You can order group and individual transfer services in Hanoi. In the first case, the fare will be much lower, since it will be divided among all passengers.
When booking a private transfer, you will immediately know the price of the trip from Hanoi to the airport, to Shonla, Sapa, Halong, or Mai Chau. One of the important advantages of this mode of travel is that the price does not change under any circumstances. You can make an order on the Kiwitaxi site.
When booking a car, you choose its class. It can be a small car or a minibus. When selecting a vehicle, consider the number of luggage and passengers. If you can not figure out what kind of car you need, contact the English-speaking Kiwitaxi managers. They will give you competent advice. If you travel to Hanoi with children, do not forget to mention in the request the necessity of having child car seats, so that kids are safe during the trip.
The level of service when ordering a shared or individual transfer is much higher than when ordering a taxi. You will be driven by professional drivers who will meet you at the indicated place and time and help to put your luggage into the trunk. If you are late by no more than an hour, the driver will calmly wait for you, will not go anywhere and will not raise the price.
Public transport from Hanoi
Bus routes are well established in the city and the suburbs. There are about 60 of them. Public transport in Hanoi is clean, comfortable and equipped with air conditioning. The price depends on the route, but, unlike in the transfer or the taxi, it is quite low. However, if you travel with children or with a lot of suitcases, public transport will not be the most convenient mode of transportation.
You can get from Hanoi to Noi Bai Airport by bus for about 0,35 dollars. The journey takes about an hour. You can take the bus N7 or N17. You can take a bus from Hanoi to the area of Mai Chau for about 20 dollars. You will spend about 4 hours and 20 minutes on the way.
The first option to get to Halong is to take a tourist bus. Approximate ticket price is 10 dollars. Travel time is three hours. The second way is a custom route, including a trip by bus and by boat to Cat Ba Island. The third option is the most economical. It is a trip by intercity bus. The cost of the ticket is about 2,2 dollars. The journey will take about five hours. Buses leave every 15-30 minutes.
