How To Reach Ninh Binh
Situated 94 km to the South of Hanoi, off the beaten track is the island province of Ninh Binh. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most ancient parts of Vietnam, the stunning natural landscape of Ninh Binh attracts thousands of visitors all year round. It is famously called the “Ha Long Bay on Land”. The best ways to reach this destination Ninh Binh is via train or bus from Hanoi owing to the fact that it doesn’t have a domestic airport of its own. The journey takes approximately 2 hours via bus or train, with the train being the slightly more comfortable way to reach. Once in Ninh Binh, visitors can opt to rent a motorbike or cycle to get from one spot to another.
Having no domestic airport of its own, visitors will be required to fly out to Noi Bai Airport of Hanoi and take a bus or taxi to get to Ninh Binh from here, which is approximately a 2-hour drive. Noi Bai airport is well connected to most international destinations and the other significant cities in and around Vietnam. This is the most efficient way to reach for international visitors. Indian travelers can get visa on arrival.
