Getting Around Vietnam

Vietnam is an exceptionally easy country to travel in, with many options for travel by bus, train and plane - all of which are surprisingly cheap. Even private car or taxi hire (with a driver provided) can be quite reasonable if you need to get somewhere in a hurry - or should you wish to explore some places off the beaten track.

In general we believe the most enjoyable, relaxing and interesting way to travel around Vietnam is by train, but this may not always be possible if you plan to visit the central highlands. Read on for our guides to travelling by domestic airlines, buses and trains across the country.
