Good to know
Not many people think of going to Ninh Binh and are quick to decide to cross it off their itineraries but that’s a big mistake. This hidden gem is located in North Vietnam, about 100 kilometers from Hanoi/ Fun fact, the latest ‘King Kong’ movie was filmed there. If you really want to experience true Vietnam in all of it’s rural nature, then definitely book this trip to Ninh Binh. This place really is considered “untouched” compared to other touristic cities. You simply won’t find that many tourists or be caught in traffic and long lines. Get lost in the nature, see beautiful temples and take boat rides through caves and rice fields. When it’s time to move on, you’ll see it’s very easy to book your next connecting city to either Hanoi, Cat Be Islands , Da Nang at more.

Better than expected
Comfy but depends on where you sit
It's okay
It's a Sleeper Bus and based on other reviews my expectations were not high. It was not bad, but not great. The bus arrived about 20mins late and arrived almost 2 hours early, but the pick-up and drop-off locations were accurate. It's possible to sleep, but won't be a great night's sleep of course. Bring a pillow, ear plugs, sleep mask, and your own blanket because you may not get one. Book o line or through your hotel to avoid complications.
Sure you can not really sleep in the Bus. The road is Bad and the driver honked all the time :( Instead of 5:15 we arrived at 3:30 in the morning.
The bus arrived 40 minutes
The bus arrived 40 minutes late and my travel partner unfortunately had to sit in one of the back seats which are in a group of 3 that are directly on top of the engine so the seats are extremely warm. The bus was overbooked with people sleeping in the aisles but the actual journey was quite pleasant. WiFi didn’t work but it was a sleeper bus so didn’t matter too much.
Besser als beim letzten Mal
Schlafbus mit Stockbetten in dreier Reihe. Sitze für Schlafbus bequem. Der Fahrer ist wirklich gerast uns hat ununterbrochen gehupt (was einen leider immer wieder aus dem Schlaf gerissen hat) Wir waren 2 h früher als angegeben am Ziel.
Ninh Binh to Phong Nha
The bus was relatively comfortable. Smooth drive. Good experience. Driver speaks no English. Would have felt more secure knowing we definitely had a seat. Receipts from local hotels/agencies were more readily accepted in the rush to get onto the bus.
Good company
All good !
We continue to get a great service from
The bus itself was a little late but was comfortable and the team on board were great. The people at the pick up point were quite amazing and helpful even though the bus was late and they were ready to pack up for the day.
1 hour late
