  • Taxi

    Городское такси в Ханое City taxi in Hanoi

    This is the fastest way to get to the airport or to the city, only 30-40 minutes. At the airport and in the Parking lot at the exit from the first floor there are many stands where you can pick up a taxi on the pocket. The cost isn't much different. Can ride at a fixed price or by the meter (taximeter), but usually taxi drivers are reluctant to "counter". Trip at a fixed price will cost from 350,000 VND (950.93 rubles). You can also rent a car via the app Grab. Grab is an Asian version of Uber (Uber is no longer working in Vietnam in 2018).

  • 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. Just remember that an IDP is valid only when presented in conjunction with the national rights. To obtain the IDP in the traffic police at the place of residence, their cost is 1600 rubles (1120 in the design of public services through the site.Russia in 2018). To take re-exams not required.

    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 on 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).

  • City buses

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

    This is the cheapest way to get to the city centre. Cost from 9,000 Dong (24.45 rubles), plus the same amount for the Luggage if it is big. Travel time – half an hour, longer during rush hours. 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 from the domestic terminal, bus 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, will have to cross the highway loaded, slightly beating the dividing line between threads. You can also go to the opposite side from the second floor of the terminal directly on the 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 and 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, it is only the seats, but unlike the previous two routes, the fare there is 35,000 VND. Besides, he's not making a lot of stops along the way. 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.

Around Hanoi on a Bicycle, IMHO, is comparable to suicide :suicide ...
Victor 27 March, 2016
Gonna fall in Vietnam. Planning to fly to Hanoi, take a 2 day tour to Halong Bay, a couple of days to spend in Hanoi and after somewhere on the sea.
In Hanoi are planning to fly in Sunday morning.
In this regard, there are a few questions:
1. Is it possible on Sunday in the city to change the currency or is it better to do it at the airport immediately after arrival?
2. Really Sunday in Hanoi to buy a tour to Halong Bay on Monday and Tuesday?
3. In the section on hotels in Vietnam read that when you check passports remain at the reception until check-out time. If leaving the hotel for 2 days in ha long Bay and spending the night there at the hotel, will you require in ha long passport to check in? If need be, how is this solved? Is it possible to get a passport during the tour administrators Hanoi hotel or the lack of a passport once decided by the organizers of the tour in hotel ha long?
4. I understand that the question that is now going to ask you a very individual, but if you can, please answer, at least approximately. Tell me how many Vietnamese Dong, roughly, it may be necessary for the first three days (one day in Hanoi + tour in Halong for 2 days)? If possible, call at least a "plug" from and to?
Thank you in advance! ...

1. currency actually change at any time, best to do it in jewelry stores on the street, Hang Bac, tested personal experience, see
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: ...

Oh, and what is there to buy profitable?
And that delicious recommend to eat? ...
Victor 29 March, 2016

Thank you very much for your detailed reply!
I forgot to ask one more question about Hanoi Sunday: do local agencies on Sunday - is it possible to buy a tour to Halong Bay that day. But, judging by Your response - you can. Right? ...
admin March 29, 2016
Why, forgot, question 2. Really, there is always work. ...

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. ...

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 - ...
