Local public busses are cheap, usually around 6-7$US for a bus leaving every 30 minutes. However, local busses do not have the comfort one might need since it might be packed with local during the weekend, and the bus will stop anywhere on the road to get customer. Additionally, these busses’ stations are usually far away from the city and may cause you inconvenience.

If you are willing to swing a couple more bucks, you can get a Limousine min bus service. It will cost you around US$ 10.00 to US$ 12.00, but will get all the comfort, for instance, a large and comfortable seat, AC, TV for your entertainment. These buses move non-stop to Halong Bay. You can check with the hotel that you are staying in Hanoi for the contact number.
