Today's visitors can choose from the following means of travel depending on their time constraints and budget:

Bicycle.

If you are active traveler, it is great to cycle in and around Hanoi, Hue, Hoian, Nha Trang and the Mekong delta.

Cars/bus/mini van.

All motor vehicles used for overland trips are modern and air-conditioned, ranging from a car to a 45-seat coach, depending on the size of the group. In Vietnam, motor vehicle rentals are accompanied by a driver as tourists are prohibited from renting cars and driving on their own. Considering the chaotic traffic, one will come to understand why it is better to leave the driving to the expert local drivers!
Minibus (26 seat): 10-16 passengers
Minivan (16 seat): 3-9 passengers
Car (4 seat): 1 or 2 passengers

Boats and/or Hydrofoil.

Local 12-24 seat boats are used for cruising in Halong Bay and smaller wooden passenger boats are used on the Mekong River. Hydrofoil services have recently become available and, depending on the distance traveled, can reduce total travel time by up to one third. Currently, there are daily services from Ho Chi Minh City to Vung Tau; Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho; Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc; Rach Gia to Phu quoc Island and vice versa. In the north, there is daily hydrofoil service from Hai Phong to Cat Ba Island and vice versa.

Planes and departure taxes.

Vietnam Airlines and Pacific Airlines are the two national carriers all domestic routes within the country. Currently,these fleets includes newly leased Boeing 777-200, 767-300, Airbus A320s, ATR 72s, and Fokker 70 aircraft. Long distance routes are often flown by contracted foreign pilots, mostly British, Australian or French.

Expect delays or even cancellations during the rainy season due to bad weather conditions. There is no domestic departure tax. An international departure tax is charged for international flights (USD$14 at Tan Son Nhat, Danang and Noi Bai airports).

Trains.

The Reunification Express is the single railway track that links Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, covering a distance of 1726 km. There are several departures daily to the two major cities. The entire trip can take between 30 and 42 hours, but can of course be broken up by stops en route. Most of the carriages, with the exception of the new SE, S and E trains, have not been upgraded since the 80’s. They are usually equipped with fans and one basic toilet facility per carriage. Air conditioned soft sleepers are a new addition to the rolling stock and have four berths per compartment. There is a choice between soft-cushioned seats and sleeping berths, the latter being recommended for overnight journeys. Train travel might not be the most comfortable or most efficient way to get around, but it does give you the opportunity to interact with the people and see the country from the perspective of the Vietnamese themselves. If you approach your trip with an open and flexible mind, it can be one of the highlights of your trip.

Vietnam has now 5 star train service from Hanoi to Sapa and Hanoi to Danang on the Victoria Express. Saigon to Nha Trang and vice Versa is also available. www.victoriahotels-asia.com and www.5starexpress.com.vn
