Getting around in Hanoi

Walking is the best way to explore many of Hanoi’s districts, including the narrow lanes of the Old Quarter. Bicycle is also a popular mean of transport for both local and visitors. An efficient bus network runs around the city, but sometimes heavy traffic may stall you for a while.

Taxis are widely available on the streets. Prefer big companies as taxi scams (mostly cranky meters) are common in the city. A local alternative for short distances is cyclos, two-person carriages pushed by a cyclist.
