The journey from Hanoi to Ha Giang is as beautiful as the destination, and Ha Giang is home to some of the most amazing landscapes in Vietnam. There are not too many travellers going to this side of northern Vietnam but it’s gradually becoming more well-known.
Ha Giang offers a beautiful green scenery close to the Chinese border. The town is characterized by winding roads, limestone mountains, and lush hills. If you want to reach Heaven’s Gate, Ha Giang is the place to be.
When travelling the 300 km distance from Hanoi to Ha Giang, you have 2 options: you can either take a bus with fares from 277,000 VND ($11.50) or a van with rates from 370,000 VND ($15.50). Travel time is 5.5 to 6 hours.
The bus is the cheapest way to get from Hanoi to Ha Giang with ticket prices from 277,000 VND ($11.50). There are several types of buses available depending on your budget and preferred level of comfort. Buses depart both in the morning and at night.
The limo van is a more luxurious option when travelling from Hanoi to Ha Giang. Limo vans are generally more spacious and comfortable than buses. Some also offer free hotel pick-up and/or drop-off. Rates start from 370,000 VND ($15.50).
TIP: If you rather book an organized tour, I recommend having a look at this 3D2N Ha Giang motorbike tour. During three days you will get to see all the highlights of the Ha Giang Loop thanks to an amazing local guide!
We recommend travelling with Truly Ha Giang. They not only have the cheapest rates, they also offer free pick-up and drop-off if your hotels are located in Hanoi Old Quarter and in Ha Giang city centre.
