How to get to Ha Giang?
After taking a flight to Hanoi (if you are in Ho Chi Minh City), you can choose any kind of means depending on your interest.
- Motorbike: If you love moving by yourself, like strong feeling, then you are recommended to pick up that one. As a motorcyclist, you can see the scenery in harmony with nature, then stop to take a shot of photos freely. But to have a complete trip do not forget to bring a map or a smartphone with google map with you.
- Car: Who wants to be safe, then the car will be the priority means. If traveling in a group you can rent private cars, or catch a coach to get to Ha Giang. Unfortunately, the coach usually runs at night so it will not be able to sight-see the scene.
