      Public transport to get around the city

      Hanoi Oct 11, 2016 at 4:06 AM

      I am moving to Hanoi in a couple of weeks for work and will need to get around fairly quickly to different areas (teaching in different language centres). I was wondering if the buses are fairly easy and stress free to use a couple of times a day to get around, because I reeeeally don't want to get a bike. Thanks!

    • Halong Bay to Hanoi Airport - Day cruise Halong

      Vietnam Oct 10, 2016 at 3:22 PM

      Has anyone traveled from Halong Bag to Hanoi Airport by car?

      If so, how long did it take you?
      Was there much traffic?

      We have a domestic flight at 21:15, and we can be in Halong on the same day at 11:30 the latest by car.

      So are not sure, when we are there if we have time for a cruise and for the trip back to the airport by 19:30 latest so we can catch the flight at 21:15.

      Thanks in advance

      Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC

      Ho Chi Minh City Oct 20, 2016 at 10:26 PM

      Hi there, I'm a UK citizen and I had my passport and wallet stolen in HCMC. I've now got an emergency passport and am in the process of getting all the visas I need for my onward journey.

      However I'm a bit confused... My flight back to the UK involves a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. On the UK gov site it says that people travelling on an ETD ( emergency passport) need a visa and TWO ETD's - one to enter Delhi and one to leave Delhi. I'm having trouble finding out if this is true as I've had no reply to my emails and can't get through on the phone to the Indian Embassy. Can anyone help?

      what would be the cost of a driver and car (ac) for a day to take us to the sights around ninh binh including a boat trip to Tam Coc, Hoa Lu etc.
      we intend to stay in a hotel in Ninh Binh, maybe 2-3 nights.
      thank you for any information.

    • leaving luggage in Tam Coc for a day

      by kosciap Online Now Nov 18, 2012 at 3:06 AM

      I'm stopping for a day (morning to evening only) in Tam Coc on the way from Hoi An to Hue. This means I will be with my backpack. Is there anyplace there where I could leave it for a day?
      I was thinking to leave it as some hotel for a small fee. Would that work?

      Ninh Binh transport and accommodation questions!

      by idy Online Now Aug 14, 2009 at 8:36 AM


      I'm planning to go to Ninh Binh in October for a few days and have a few questions.

      1. I'll be backpacking, where should I stay that's reasonable priced? I don't need any luxuries like air conditioning or television, just as long as it's clean and has shower facilities.

      2. Does anyone know how I can get to the Cuc Phuong National Park from Ninh Binh for a day hike?

      3. Is it easy to get to and explore Tam Coc and Hoa Lu by bicycle from Ninh Binh?

      4. What about Kenh Ga Floating Village, how can I get there?

      Thanks muchly for any advice!
