How to get to and from Ha Tinh

Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Ha Tinh.

Book a flight, train, bus, taxi or ferry in Vietnam with Baolau


Ha Tinh's bus station at the centre of town is a good place to stay and get something to eat as well as pick up transport. Regular buses leave for Vinh and cost 20,000 VND, and south to Dong Hoi for 100,000 VND, though you may need to catch some departures by the side of the road rather than in the bus station itself. Here, as elsewhere, Hoang Long offers long distance buses: Hanoi, 150,000 VND, Saigon, 600,000 VND.

Almost any buses heading up or down Highway 1 can be persuaded to drop you off in Ha Tinh.

Getting around

Other than the standard xe om option you may be able to hitch a ride on one of the horse drawn carts. The drivers, of course, see the appearance of a foreigner as an opportunity for a big pay day, so expect some spirited negotiations. Of course, you'll ruin their whole day if you bargain down to local prices, so try to be a teeny bit generous. Otherwise, they'll be teased mercilessly by all the other drivers for the next month.

For taxi service, call Mailinh at T:(039) 898 989.
