There is no shuttle bus or local bus driectly from Halong to Ninh Binh. It is easier to go from Hanoi to Halong, back to Hanoi and then Hanoi to Binh Binh by cheap local bus ~$5.00 one way. The best choice is join tour group departure from Hanoi by many travel agency in Hanoi Old quarter. If you wanted travel from Hanoi to Halong - Ninh Binh rent a private car.

Yes, by far the easiest way to get to Ninh Binh from Halong Bay is via Hanoi. Earlier this year I paid about $4 for the Hanoi-Ninh Binh train journey (soft seat), which is far more comfortable than going by bus.

The only other alternative (apart from a car with driver) is to take a bus from Halong City to Haiphong and another from there to Ninh Binh, although I don't know whether the bus timetables would allow you to do it in one day.

Agree Hanoi to Ninh Bing.

We travelled down via bus ($5 / 2 hrs). It was a nightmare journey so travelled back a few days later by train which was a similar cost and time. Much more relaxed.

We have some pics, maps and stories of our trip here... www.bobandjanette.com which may help.

Happy & safe travels

We've booked a private transfer with english speaking guide through a travel wholesaler - AUD57 pp. Saves wasting time travelling back to Hanoi.

We got back from our Halong Bay tour at 4.00pm and was on a bus at 6.00pm to go to Ninh Binh arrived 9.30 pm. It rained so much that night that Hanoi flooded,,(we just missed it) so it was a nightmare getting out and getting to Ninh Binh... but worth it..

The bus was an overnight coach going south,,, it thought the experience was fantastic getting to lay down on a little bed... but be warned,,, they sell tickets for the bus floor... so trying to get to the loo and out of the bus at 9.30pm at night was tricky,,, walking over locals sleeping etc.

Loved the town and surrounding so much.
