How to Take a Bus From Hanoi to Halong Bay

How to Take a Bus From Hanoi to Halong Bay
IN A NUTSHELL
  • If you take a cruise tour, it is best to arrange your transfer via the cruise operator - many will offer it for free.
  • Public buses are available with hourly departure but not recommended as they will arrive at the Bai Chay terminal; you then need to take a taxi to Halong Bay main area.
  • Many tour offices in Hanoi Old Quarter area can arrange "tourist bus" that picks up from hotel in Hanoi to the cruise pier or to hotel in Halong Bay for 10-20 USD.

Hey!
I saw that you pasted the wrong URL of the bus provider Kumho Viet Thanh in your webpage. It seems like there are 2 companies named like this, the one you linked is a car/bus renting company. However, this is the correct Url:
