The world-famous Halong Bay is now just an hour and a half away from Hanoi starting from this September.
The Hai Phong – Ha Long Highway, which was opened on September 1st after three years of construction, will reduce travel time between Ha Long and the northern port city of Hai Phong from two hours to 30 minutes. It consists of 19.8km of roads and 5.4km of Bach Dang Bridge. The starting point locates on Vietnam National Highway No.18 in Halong City and the ending point is at the intersection with the Hanoi – Hai Phong Highway. The standard speed applied on this highway is 100km/h.
As a result, this highway will shorten the traveling distance between Hanoi and Halong Bay from 180 km to 130km, which means only 1.5 hours by car, half of the time as before. It will provide travelers with a better experience to discover Halong Bay. Don’t miss this chance to discover the unique scenery of Halong Bay – Vietnam’s finest natural gem as it offers different global standard quality cruises.
