Not so bad but don't want to use anymore
First, using car with other person. The car has seats for 5 person. So before boarding car, there were already 3 people on board. The number of people was fine, but it was inconvenient for the rider to talk or make phone calls. Second, arriving incorrect time in Hanoi. We got out of the car for the last time. We had to stop by two places for other person before we got off, so it was late. It took over 3 hours Halong bay to Hanoi station. Third, the unfriendliness of a driver. While driving us to Hanoi station, the driver laughed and talked on the phone with another person for a long time. Our arrival station was Hanoi Station, but he talked on the phon with other person and drove a minute past the distance. I told him that my destination was Hanoi station, but he didn't understand English and stopped the car with a look of embarrassment. So we got out of the car and walked five minutes away with the carrier.
