Buses depart for Halong Bay from Hanoi's Gia Lam Bus Station. The four-hour ride costs 90,000 VND, but the bus is crowded, hot, and makes multiple stops along the way. Most boat tours include shuttle service to/from Halong Bay with an 8 am pickup at your hotel and noon drop-off at Halong City port. A number of public shuttles depart from Hanoi's Old Quarter, offering one-way transportation for $10-$15 for the four-hour trip.
