>> Moving in Vietnam – Part 1

Tourists on the Vietnam travel packages can travel in a decent quality air-conditioned coach, buses, or by train with its sleeper berths that may be appreciated on longer journeys. Plus, the domestic flights offer a time-efficient and comfortable service that significantly shortens the travel time within the country, and is still relatively inexpensive.

Here are the next popular ways to get around in Vietnam:

Car and jeep

Self-hire hire cars are yet a thing in Vietnam, but that may well be a blessing for the tourists in view of the traffic conditions. But, hiring a vehicle with a driver is plentiful and popular. Most of the decent size cities have the tourist offices, agencies, or companies that can organise the hire of a minibus, jeep or car. For the group travels on the holiday to Vietnam, this can make a quite inexpensive means of transport. Plus, the hire car gives great flexibility and means it is possible to easily organise the personal itinerary that matches your own tastes. Prices can vary, but expect to pay in the region of $50-$90 per day (depends on the vehicle’s level of comfort, age, size, type, etc.).

Motorbike hire is a real possibility in most of the tourist-friendly cities and towns. A motorbike cruise of the countryside or mountainous regions is certain to appeal to the independent travellers. But, the long-distance bike tour should be limited to the experienced bikers because some of the roads, especially those with heavy traffic, can be distinctly dangerous. But for those travellers that love to ride, the best biking destinations to be found are around the Mekong Delta, the central highlands and in the northern mountains. Plus, there is the pristine tarmac of the Ho Chi Minh Highway that offers some wonderful scenery.

For the long haul trip, Highway 1 from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City can take in the region of two weeks to complete (travelling an average distance of 150 km per day). Most of the tourist centres have motorbikes for hire; the average rate is $5 per day for a manual shift bike or $6-$7 per day for automatics.
