Halong Bay Travel Guide

Car Travel

Like elsewhere in Vietnam, it is not recommended for foreigners to drive here. A private car or taxi should cost about 1,465,800 to 2,094,000 VND ($70 to $100) from Hanoi to Halong Bay (four hours). Round-trip shuttle service is generally included for overnight cruise passengers, or it might be tacked on for an added fee.
