There's a good road that by-passes HaNoi. And, there are local buses along the route - but at what speed I don't know. Halong City (note this is quite away from where the boats moor) to Haiphong, then another bus to Ninh Binh, then another to Vinh, then another to Hue.

It may be that one or more of the tourist bus companies run the link, but I don't know.

Unless you want to stop off along the way, it will be quicker and may be cheaper to go back to HaNoi. The tourist 'run' is generally a night one (the train does night, so people seem to get a night bus as well). So, if time is an issue, then HaNoi will be the necessary connector.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Wow, tell me when you're going and I'll fly over and drive the taxi for you. The fare will be incredible!
