Travel options in Vietnam
Flying can save you precious hours or even days when it comes to traveling even you’re on a tight schedule. There are several domestic airports, and there are many flights connecting big cities and towns with each other, such as Hanoi and Ho Chi. You can also find cheap flights to Hué, Da Nang, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc Island.
Taking the train in Vietnam is a great way to get a true taste of local life. There is a railway line running from North to South which stops at nearly all of the main sights along the way.
Private car or motor
Officially, It is not possible for you to rent your own car (or motor) in Vietnam since your driver’s license needs to be Vietnamese. Off the record, you’ll see plenty of travelers being on motorbikes so it’s up to you if you wanna give it a try. If you do, make sure you get a helmet and a rear mirror on your motorbike. It might also be a smart thing to get a renter bike checked out at a mechanic to be 110% sure all is ok. Of course, travel insurance is a must!
Boats are a part of Vietnamese life, so there will be many to be found! Scheduled ferries sail year-round – weather permitting – to the major islands off Vietnam’s coastline, including Phu Quoc, Cat Ba, and Con Dao.
Also, make sure you go on a boat tour around Ha Long By, one of Vietnam’s most enjoyable trips.
