A common way to travel between Hanoi (in the North), Hue/Danang (in the Centre) and Ho chi minh city (in the South) is by airways. Vietnam Airlines is the main carrier servicing domestic routes within the country. Its rapidly expanding fleet now includes newly leased Boeing, Airbus, ATRs and Fokker aircrafts. Foreign pilots, from UK, Australia and France are often contracted to fly the aircrafts. The in-flight meals are basic, however the service is highlighted with the Ao Dai (traditional dress), costume that attendants are wearing.. During the rainy season flights can often be delayed or cancelled due to weather conditions. In this case, our staff will assist your clients and arrange the changes that may be necessary, accordingly to their needs. Vietnam Airlines however do not accept liability for delays and additional charges may be incurred by your client, and reclaimed through their insurance.
We arrange late-model with experienced drivers for your trip: 4-seat-cars (Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda) for groups of 1-2 person(s), minivans (Ford, Toyota, Mercedes) for groups from 3 to 7 people and buses (Hyundai, Daewoo) for bigger groups. For trips to mountainous areas, depending on conditions of routes, we may provide 4X4 vehicles.
The most famous train experience in Vietnam is with the Reunification Express. Of great historic significance, the single track linking Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City was restored in 1976 to express the country's unity, after having been destroyed repeatedly during years of war. Today, a number of trains (varying by speed!), commences the 1726km journey every day, with the entire journey taking from upwards of 36 hours. It is better to consider a short journey on the train, rather than the entire stretch from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. Above all, remember that travelling by train in Vietnam is basic - not luxurious - and is not for everyone. It should be approached with an open mind and an adventurous attitude. Contact with the local people onboard can be an opportunity for an enriching experience and just reward for a little discomfort.
During trip, your clients would have the opportunity to try other modes of transportation that are more common with the native such as local trains, ferries, boats, and motorcycle taxis.. The experience of travelling by these will be one of the most memorable moments in Vietnam.
