By our Syrena Cruises transfer from Noibai airport to Halong, or from Hanoi center to Halong. It takes about 3 hours. We provide this service with fee upon request.
By shuttle bus: Pick up & drop off passengers in the Ha Noi old quarter. It takes about 4 hours pending on many stops en route the driver makes to pick up/drop off passengers.
By train: take cargo train from Hanoi to Yenvien and then to Quang Ninh. The terminal is about 50km away from the harbour. Expect train delays and cancellations without notice.
By open bus: pick up & drop off at Bus Station. The ride is approximately 4 – 6 hours long, and the bus will stop to pick up passengers along the way. Air-conditioning is minimal, so be prepared to break a sweat in summer.
