Bus

Ninh Binh's bus station is located near the railway station, just across the bridge leading to Phat Diem, on the last section of Tran Hung Dao (Highway 1) going south towards Hue. Buses to all destinations are frequent and you'll rarely have to wait long. Most hotels and guesthouses have the timetables clearly indicated on the wall. If you come back on Highway 1 from Kenh Ga (14km north of Ninh Binh) you can stand along the highway and flag down one of the numerous buses going north, will save you a lot of time. Fares about 2,000 to 2,500 Dong per km.
