Getting around Halong Bay

For those not traveling in a tour bus and those daring to venture out far, finding their way around Halong Bay can be intimidating. Fear not since Halong Bay has every way to support moving around town.

 

Taxi

Taxi is highly recommended for long distance traveling such as to the pier or to airport. Since the taxi driver is a native, he might be able to give the tourists some travel tips or a good story about the bay (if he can speak English!).

The fare is reasonable, usually around 14,000 VND (about $0.7 USD) per milometer. There are many options of taxi suppliers, but tourists should choose well-known companies such as Mai Linh Taxi, Ha Long Taxi, and Mong Cai Taxi. These firms have many different types of cab with a visible taximeter that would please any customer.

You can always ask the hotel receptionist to call one for you.

Rental car/motorbike

For tourists who prefer private transportation for flexibility at low, rental motorbike and car might be an ideal option. These rental vehicles are available at various locations in the city, but tourists are recommended to lease cars or motorbikes at their hotels. The price is various based on distances, time, and kind of vehicles, but generally it is only VND 60,000 – 100,000 ($3 – 5) a day for motorbike, and VND 800,000 – 1,200,000 ($ 40 -60) a day for a car.
