Transportation to Halong Bay is always the first problem you need to tick in your to-do list before your trip to Halong. Previously, travelers who want to explore the world heritage have been flying to Noi Bai or Cat Bi Airport and then take car or bus journey to the UNESCO world heritage site. Nowadays, by launching the new international airport, you can put Van Don Airport to your consideration as a smart choice for transportation.
