Vietnam is a popular destination to visit in South East Asia. However, Vietnam transportation, especially traffic, can be troublesome and difficult to understand.
This article is a comprehensive guide to get around Vietnam by bus, train, plane, motorbike, and others.
What is Vietnam transportation like?
Transportation in Vietnam can be dangerous but exciting at the same time.
Everyone drives a bit crazy, especially when it’s rush hours. You can see motorbikes driving on the sidewalk or the pavement. It’s very often to see a whole family on a motorbike: both parents and 2 kids at the same time.
Is it safe to drive in Vietnam?
Not really, but you will be fine most of the time if you practice basic common sense.
Please note that if you don’t have a license for motorbikes or cars, you may not receive insurance in case of accidents. Thus, taking a train, bus or flight may be a better alternative than driving on your own.
Traveling in Vietnam by Train
Traveling by train in Vietnam is one of the best options to enjoy the beauty of Vietnam. As a train in Vietnam goes through some of the most scenic routes, you will get a close and personal view of the scenery.
Although traveling by train can be more expensive than with a bus, the experience is worth it. Especially, you can take private trains to experience luxurious service.
