Halong Bay, City or Bay Chai to Ninh Binh

By Darren - Posted on 24 August 2008

There are direct buses from Halong Bay to Ninh Binh, including public buses and private buses, which may include open ticket bus companies.  

Private buses

There are many private bus companies operating to and from Halong Bay, but most are working with tour companies and there are no bus company offices or travel agents in town.  Try going to the tourist jetty, 2 km west of Bai Chay (an easy walk) and ask around.  There is a travel information office there that might be able to help.  There is also a guy from the Thong Nhat Hotel, just opposite the post office in Bai Chay, who can sell tickets to Ninh Binh (150,000Dong, 4 hours) for a morning and afternoon bus.  You need to book a day in advance the bus needs to be informed to collect you from the Thong Nhat Hotel.  This guy can be found at the hotel or at the tourist jetty.

Public Buses

Public buses leave for Ninh Binh from the Bai Chay bus station, which is 5km outside of Bai Chay.  Alternativaly get a motorbike taxi to drop you by the bridge intersection of the highway, from where you can flag down a Ninh Binh bound bus.  Buses to Ninh Binh take 3 hours and cost 70,000Dong.
