Night sleeper buses are available when going to Hanoi from Ha Giang. This will help you save valuable daytime. If you prefer to enjoy the amazing landscapes on the way, daytime buses are also available.
If you want a bit more luxury, you can also travel via a limo van. Only daytime trips are available. This option is a bit more expensive than taking the bus, but one of our recommended companies also offer free pick-up and drop-off within Ha Giang town and Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem district.
PRO-TIP: After you’ve visited the North of Vietnam, it’s time to explore Vietnam’s beautiful karst mountains on the coast of Halong Bay or Cat Ba. Use the search tool on top of the page to see the route overviews or book a Halong Bay boat cruise directly with Kook.
You can opt to book a day or night bus, both options are available. If you’d like to enjoy the beautiful views during the journey, we suggest booking a daytime bus. The entire journey takes at least 6.5 hours. See below the details for each company.

For many travellers, Halong Bay is one of the highlights of Vietnam. The stunning landscape and breathtaking views over the limestone rocks look almost unreal!
To experience Halong Bay in the best way, you can book a boat cruise departing from Hanoi. Organized tours departing from Hanoi are often cheaper than tours sold by agencies in Halong Bay and another advantage is that you don't need to organize your transport to get there.
We recommend to book your boat tour online to get the best prices and be certain that you book with a trusted company. I already spoke to many travellers who booked boat trips from a random agency on the street and were very disappointed by the service and conditions of this boat.
