We are planning to go to Hue from Haiphong does anyone know how long it takes and which would be the best way to travel would we get a coach (bus) or by car,would it be best to stop off at Vinn to break up the travel
You can get a bus from the sinh cafe in hue to Hanoi, it's an overnight sleeping bus. Think it might take about 16 hours. Check out their website. Or else there is the train. We went from hue to Hanoi on the overnight bus, not much sleep but it was cheap.
Thank you for your reply but we are not going to Hanoi ,we are traveling from Hai phong down to Hue and was wondering how long it took to get there, and what is the best method to travel there
I think first you tell where you live, so that we can suggest you best. Via your information we have to calculate all the things plus we also get the knowledge about that.
It will take a similar amount of time and it won't be comfortable. Bus journeys in Vietnam are accompanied by loud honking horns constantly and swerving around lorries and motorbikes. I would go with a car. Travel agents can arrange a car and driver for you. Better still - fly.
The bus company is Hoang Long
You can check the website for times.
I was born in Haiphong city.So my advice is:
It's very convient to take a bus from Haiphong to Hue.In HP city, there are there bus stations.
But u should catch Hoang Long - good name bus in Tam Bac bus station.Beause of pertrol price is rising so it is about 400.000 - 500.000 VND ( about $23).If you go at the night time you will arrival Hue int he next morning.
Just be careful when u go to local bus station beause of theft, cheating
Correct! I would suggest you use Hoang Long bus. I used to use this company. very good. price include your food on the way they stop some restaurant for your refresh
I agree with all you guys that Hoang Long bus is a good choice. They have different time range for you to choose. It often takes 14 hours to get to Hue ( Hai Phong is around 500 kms distant from Hue).
If you leave HP at 9am, you'll stop at Hue at 11pm (you may book a hotel, relax and spend the next day for visiting Hue)
If you leave HP at 6.30pm or 7.30pm, you'll get to Hue at 8.30 am or 9.30am.
the price is 390.000d, around $20.
Or else, you take a bus to Hanoi (less than $5), than flight from Noi Bai to Phu Baii airport (Hue).
If you are in Haiphong, you can take Hoang Long bus to Hue city directly.
If you would like to travel on train or plane you must travel to Hanoi and then take train/plane to Hue.
Note that: Phu Bai airport in Hue will be closed from Mar to Nov 2013
When you are in Hue, you can take private tour or join group tour to visit: Hue city, Phong nha cave, Paradise cave, DMZ.
And then take open bus at 8am or 1pm from Hue to Hoi An or train or private car.
In Hoi An you can join group tour to visit My Son, Cham island (just in summer from Apr to Sep) or some activities in Hoi An, countryside...
