How to get to Halong Bay for cruise embarkation

Due to recent investments and construction on road works, the transfer from Hanoi or Hai Phong to Halong Bay is so much easier, especially after a new highway connecting Hai Phong and Halong Bay opened in September 2018. The highway helps to reduce the travel time from Hanoi to Halong Bay to 2.5 hours instead of 4 hours as before, and cut down the Halong Bay - Hai Phong commute to 1 hour.

1. Shuttle bus of cruise lines

The most convenient way to travel from Hanoi to Halong Bay is to book a Halong Bay Cruise tour that includes the transfer roundtrip Hanoi – Halong Bay – Hanoi. After making a cruise reservation with transfer, travelers no longer worry about the transfer because they will be picked up and dropped off by the cruise’s shuttle bus which is quite safe and comfortable. The Halong Bay Cruise Lines will ask for tourists’ addresses and inform them the time beforehand for better preparation. And what you need to do is waiting to be picked up from your hotel.

The only thing you need to concern about this way is that the shuttle bus will pick up and drop off guests in the Hanoi Old Quarter area only. Then you should confirm with the cruise lines if you are able to be picked up from your address.

2. Private car

Getting picked up from any hotels in Hanoi is the advantage of booking a private car. This option is also for those who do not want to share the transfer with strangers. You can easily book a private car with a travel agent and get a comfortable transfer to Halong Bay. With a private car, you can also ask for a transfer from a cruise port directly to Hanoi Airport with a surcharge. And obviously, the price is more expensive than a bus transfer.

3. Seaplane

Travel by seaplane is a new service to get to Halong Bay which was officially launched by Hai Au Aviation. Departing from Hanoi Airport, Hai Au seaplane will transfer travelers directly to Tuan Chau Island in 45 minutes. The price for this service is higher than others but it will be a great experience as you can admire the panoramic view of Halong Bay from the sky. This is certainly a good choice for those who have a generous budget.

FROM HAI PHONG


As at the moment, there are many new cruises embarking from Got Ferry Port – Hai Phong to explore Lan Ha Bay which is a nice alternative for the crowded Halong Bay, many tourists choose to fly to Hai Phong Airport to get the cruises here.

From Hai Phong Airport, it is about 30km to reach Got Ferry Port and about 45km to get to Tuan Chau Island. The most convenient and reasonable transport between these points is the taxi. You can easily take a taxi at the airport to get to the cruise port or if you need to be in Hai Phong Airport after the cruise, you should ask help from the cruise staff to take a taxi.
