We recommend you to book the flight to Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi). There is Cat Bi International Airport also, but the number of flights to this airport is limited and we can't arrange supporting staff there.
It takes around 3.5 hours from airport to Halong Bay. We recommend you to book morning arriving flight on arrival day and afternoon departing flight on departure day if possible.
Airport picks up and drops off:
By shuttle bus (Recommendation): To support delegates, APCRSHR9 will arrange airport pick up and drop off for those who wish to use this service (from 25th November to 1st December) with a very modest fee: 15$/one way. The delegate will pay by cash when arrive.
Please look for a staff holding a conference banner as soon as you exit the baggage claim and customs area at either domestic or international gate.
By rent a private car or taxi: take a car from Noi Bai, or from Hanoi center to Halong bay. Please contact Secretariat@apcrshr9vn.org for transfer by private car from Noi Bai to Halong
By Seaplane: Take a seaplane flight from Noi Bai to Halong for only 45 minutes. Enjoy fabulous aerial views over the countryside and experience the thrill of a water landing at the Tuan Chau Island Marina. The flight can be extended to include an additional 15-minute scenic tour over the bay, which allows you to enjoy a bird’s eye view (150-300m high) of the thousands of limestone karsts jutting up from the jade green waters and see remote fishing villages before landing at Tuan Chau Island Marina.
