How to buy Hanoi bus tickets to Ninh Binh?

You can choose one of two ways to purchase tickets:

Buy direct bus tickets

You can go to Nuoc Ngam / My Dinh bus station, or your car’s Hanoi office and buy tickets directly. However, this is quite inconvenient because you will have to move to the bus station yourself and may have to wait a long time, unable to catch a satisfactory or low-priced bus ticket. To avoid that, you can book a car ticket through the reception at your place of residence, or call the car directly to book, so it will be faster and more convenient.
