Device airport terminals

Hanoi airport has two terminals:

  • International Terminal T2 - the new international terminal
  • Domestic Terminal T1, the old domestic terminal

All international flights arrive at T2. Terminals are located in separate buildings, not connected by transitions. Distance from entrance to entrance is about 1 kilometer. To get from one to another, you need to go outside. Further to the other terminal can be reached on foot (20 minutes), or use the free Shuttle special Shuttle cars that are waiting at the exit of the arrival hall and takes you to the entrance to the departure lounge. It is recommended to move between the terminals to lay 30 minutes.

Most of it is on the ground floor in the arrivals hall and operates around the clock. Also on the second floor of the international terminal are packing Luggage for 60 000 Dong (approximately 203.64 RUB, see Vietnam currency and the exchange rate), and camera storage Luggage for 106 000 VND/day (open from 06:30 to 23:00).

Immediately upon leaving the Board in the international terminal you through the corridors you get into the passport control area, in front of which is hour visa on arrival (sign Visa Application). Working around the clock. Here one officer takes the documents (passport, completed application form, photograph 4x6, letter of invitation, money in dollars, if necessary), and then have to wait for his name on the screen, and come to receive the passport with visa already pasted from another officer.

The exchange rate at the airport, whether to change the currency

Unlike most other airports of the world airports of Vietnam good exchange rate. You can easily change some money for the first time and even more especially if you are traveling to Hanoi and other resorts in Northern Vietnam (e.g., Sapa or Halong Bay). In our experience higher rate than at the airport, you can only find in the jewelry shops in the tourist area of Hanoi, while in banks, exchange bureaux and hotels it can be even a little lower. For example, in a single day in 2018, the rate at the airport was 23300 Dong per dollar, while banks in the town of Sapa was 23298 Dong per dollar, i.e. even slightly lower.

Offices are located in the arrivals area, where you get immediately after passing customs control. Exchangers several, from different banks, the difference in the rate between them is minimal. But if you change a large sum, it makes sense to go down the hall and to find the most profitable. Here is several ATMs from different banks.

How to get from Hanoi airport to the city

The airport is 45 kilometers from the city (Hanoi airport on the map). The transport here is quite developed, and to get to the city center, if you wish, you can use the city bus, minibus, or taxi. To leave in other cities and resorts except the taxi will have to transplant in Hanoi.

  • Taxi

    Городское такси в Ханое City taxi in Hanoi

    This is the fastest way to get to the airport or in the city, on the spot will be within 30-40 minutes. In the terminal and on the Parking lot at the exit from the first floor there are a few stands, the cost isn't much different. Of your choice can ride at a fixed price or by the meter (taximeter), but usually to persuade the drivers to go on the counter hard. Even if you persuade a taxi driver to "counter", it is possible pitfalls like broken in the way of a counter, circular routes, or simply "rigged" meters. Therefore, to travel from the airport it is better to take a trip at a fixed value.

    Trip at a fixed price will cost from 350,000 VND (around 1187.9 RUB.

    Much safer to rent a car using the Grab app. Grab is an Asian version of Uber, and almost indistinguishable on the interface, but only in English. When ordering you will immediately see the final price, and only her, and you will need to pay the driver. Trip through Grab cost even cheaper than the taxi on location: from the airport to the tourist area of Hanoi from 340 000 Dong (about 1153.96 RUB). To connect to the Internet through free Wi-Fi at the airport. See more about taxi in Hanoi and how to use it here...

    If you do not want to contact your local shifty taxi drivers can pre-order the tour pickup. It is almost the same as a taxi, but with a high level of service. Already on arrival you will meet your car and driver will meet you with the tablet. No problems with the language barrier will not occur, the payment is made online when booking, so you never have to change money at the airport. To check the transfer prices and book can by using the search box:

  • Rent a car

    2014 in Vietnam on absolutely legal grounds, you can manage the rented vehicles under international driving permit (IDP), the relevant requirements of the Vienna Convention on road traffic (read more about rent a motorcycle and car in Vietnam). Such issue in Russia, and previously was necessary to obtain a temporary local license, and no other in the country was not recognized. Now you can safely manage with a driver's license issued in Russia. Just remember that an IDP is valid only in conjunction with the national rights, so to take to Vietnam have both rights. To obtain the IDP in the traffic police, their cost is 1600 rubles (1120 in the design of public services through the site.Russia in 2018). To pass the exams to get an IDP is not required.

    The price for renting a car is still quite high - from $ 50 per day. The country has opened offices international distributors, and now you can book a car in Vietnam here.

  • Van Vientam Airlines (Hanoi Airport Minibus)

    Микроавтобус в аэропорт, Ханой Minibus to the airport near the office

    As soon as you exit the airport terminal on the ground floor, you will see the minibuses with the logos of airlines Jetstar and Vietnam Airlines. They are sent as fill and move without any schedule from early morning until around 22 hours. Journey time – 45-60 minutes. The trip cost them 40 000 VND, to be paid in the minibus. For very large Luggage, you will have to pay an additional 40 000 VND, but for an additional cost of $1-2, the driver will take you to the hotel. Otherwise, you will be able to go near the sword lake near the tourist area, or to reach "the end" at the address: Quang Trung, 2 (office/end-the map of Hanoi). From there, you can take a taxi to your hotel or within walking distance. The office is a short walk from lake "Returned sword", and 10 minutes from the main tourist area (on the map the walking route from the office to the tourist area depicted in blue).

    You can also get this bus from the city to the airport, but keep in mind that they are in the occupancy, and therefore it is better to come in advance, with the stock at the time at least one hour. You can also buy tickets in advance at the office on the "end" at the address: Quang Trung, 2. But to actually use the van for the trip to the airport is not very convenient because there is a cheaper option – city Express bus No. 86 (see about him below), which runs consistently on schedule and is cheaper.

  • City buses

    Автобус №86 из аэропорта, Ханой Bus No. 86 from the airport

    This is the cheapest way to get to the city centre. The cost 9,000 Dong – from 9,000 Dong (30.55 rubles), plus the same amount for the Luggage if it is big. Travel time – half an hour at peak times longer. The buses are quite comfortable, air-conditioned, but frequently crowded. Go from 05:00 to 22:00 every 15-20 minutes.

    City buses leave from the opposite side of the road only from the internal terminal T1, a stop near the international terminal, they do not (with the exception of route No. 86). If you exit the domestic terminal on the ground floor, you can cross the road, slightly beating the separation fence. You can also go to the opposite side from the second floor of the terminal directly by a pedestrian bridge. On the map we noted the exact location of the bus stops at the terminal. Be careful: you will try to put in a commercial bus or taxi, and assure that the bus is no more, or that stop is very far away. Don't believe it.

    There are several routes from the airport:

    • Number 17 goes to Long Bien station (seemap) past the tourist area. Even if you miss an exit near the tourist area (and get off after the bridge) before reaching the final stop, Long Bien easy access to the tourist area on foot (20 minutes). Where is the Long Bien station, see also interactive map.
    • Express bus No. 86. It does stop near the exit at each of the terminals (stops are marked with blue signs with route number), goes to sword lake (the heart of the city), and ends the route at the railway station of Hanoi. From the airport runs from 06:25 to 23:05 from Hanoi from 05:05 to 21:40 every 25-30 minutes on the schedule. It's a great alternative to crowded city bus No. 17, but costs 35,000 VND, not 9000 as the previous two. Read more about route 86 from Hanoi airport here...
    • No. 7 goes to Kim Ma station. It's quite far from the tourist area, they will have to take a taxi or take another bus.

1. currency actually change at any time, best to do it in jewelry stores on the street, Hang Bac, tested personal experience, see http://nashaplaneta.net/asia/vietnam/hanoi.html#useful
2. Really, especially if you arrive in the morning. If in doubt, you can order in advance on the website sinhcafe, but I wouldn't worry
3. Interesting question :-). In fact, the original passport is not required everywhere and take, sometimes the cost of a photocopy (although the law should be the original registration). I think this is a question the Agency resolved, so don't worry, just stock up on a photocopy. In General, why pay for two day just so the hotel, it is easier to be discharged, to book a room in two days, and leave things at them. So repeatedly done.
4. No problem. If at the minimum, to get from the airport on 17-m the bus (about 0.3$); on the cheap guestlist for two is$ 15; the tour is$ 50 for two. Plus eat, drink a beer and 15$ for two. A total of 80.3$, it is 1792560.99 at today's exchange rate, and if as wrote above, will not be for two more days the guest to take. Well, the upper limit is infinity ;) . While there, in Vietnam at all desire a lot of money to spend does not work, this is not Russia :lol: ...

3. I advise you to take a picture of the passport that was not just xero-, and the electronic copy, which you can show from your phone\tablet.
If You are leaving from Hanoi, why pay to stay in another hotel?
4. We toured the Bay of Ha long 3 days\2 nights (01-02-03 may 3016). The first night on the ship, the second in a Bungalow on a small island in the Bay, where they themselves arrived on Cat BA and spent the night there too. Cost as much as a week in a very decent hotel in Hoi an.
Here Hoane met guys who from Hanoi came to the Cat BA and got a personal tour for the day. Them with Cat BA in the morning and took the evening brought. Paid three times less than we drove across the Bay so as not to overlap with other groups. In addition there was a personal guide and a kayak. In my opinion (after the fact) the night on the ship is absolutely a waste of time, and besides, you can have a front row seat to a very loud karaoke concert. ...

Good day!
25 Jan arrive in Hanoi for the first time crossed the Vietnamese border (Visa for Russians is not needed), 2 days in Hanoi. Thence with 27 to February 4 fly to Singapore. Arrival from Singapore 4.02 about 18 hours to fly to Moscow on 5 February at 10.45 am.
Question: to 4 Feb to stay at a hotel in the city will have to do the Vietnamese visa? I do not want. And if you live near the airport also need a Visa? Does most of the transit Lounge where there are sleeping places? No idea how to survive 16 hours of transplantation. What are some ideas that may prompt experts visited Vietnam. We were there for the first time. Thank you. ...
admin December 28, 2018

If you go beyond the international zone at the airport, the visa will have to do no matter next to the airport, or far away. Generally the Hanoi airport is quite comfortable, and you can even sleep on the benches in the ordinary waiting area, there are no handrails. But 16 hours to be there, it's certainly a gesture. In principle, there is the Internet and there are places to charge, you can surf the Internet or work. Biznesses is, here - https://www.loungebuddy.com/HAN ...
