Hanoi Day Trips
While Hanoi Airport Taxi does provide fast, efficient and budget-friendly transportation to and from Noi Bai Airport, it also provides private transportation to a number of different locations throughout the surrounding Hanoi region.
Guests who have some extra time to spare during their stay in the capital city region are encouraged to branch out a bit! A short drive outside of Hanoi is a number of exciting day trips that offer guests a great glimpse into the local culture and natural wonders. For those who want to visit these spots but don’t necessarily need a “guide” to show them around, private transportation is the perfect solution.
Hanoi Airport Taxi offers efficient, reliable and cost-effective private transportation to a number of day-trip destinations. No matter the group size or length of stay, we can accommodate guests’ needs and wants for their private trips outside the city. Our drivers are safe, extremely professional and know the surrounding areas very well. Not sure where to go? Here is a list of wonderful destinations to visit:
Cultural Sites & Natural Wonders
For guests who love beautiful ceramics and pottery, the Bat Trang Ceramic Village is Vietnam’s best attraction. Practicing the ancient art of ceramics for over 1,000 years, local potters in Bat Trang produce some of the country’s most stunning works of pottery- both white and brown clay with intricate shapes and glazes. Only 16 kilometers outside of Hanoi, our vehicles can provide two-way transport enabling you to wander the beautiful region for as long as you want.
Another excellent nearby visit is the Van Phuc Silk Village. Only 10 kilometers outside Hanoi, this traditional crafts village is the country’s oldest silk producer creating beautiful hand-woven silk products… an excellent place to find scarves, shirts, garments and raw materials for further production.
A bit further out of the city (60 kilometers) is the Duong Lam Ancient Village. With a history dating back 1,200 years, Duong Lam is famous for being the birthplace of two former kings of Vietnam. 400 year old houses, communal buildings, ancient wells and beautiful countryside paths illustrate this traditional region- a wonderful place to explore for a day trip!
For an all-encompassing destination, one of our most exciting Hanoi Day Trips is the Ninh Binh Province. Home to Vietnam’s largest temple complex (the Bai Dinh Pagoda), the ancient capital of Hoa Lu, Phat Diem Cathedral and scenic area of Trang An- guests will have a number of wonderful visits to explore here!
Because Ninh Binh Province is just under 100 kilometers outside of Hanoi, visitors looking to spend only a day here should plan a bit extra time for transportation to and from.
Day Trip to Halong Bay
Most people traveling to North Vietnam will want to visit Halong Bay… however time is often an issue for many travelers. If you don’t have the time to spend the evening in Halong, Hanoi Airport Taxi also offers day-trip transportation to this UNESCO World Wonder. If you leave early in the morning (the drive takes at least 3 hours), visitors will have enough time to day trip around the Bay with our transport waiting to bring you back in the late afternoon (expect to arrive back in Hanoi between 6 and 8 PM).
