Cons: Dangerous, Time Consuming, Uncomfortable Inconvenient
On the other hand, it is quite dangerous to engage in traffic in Vietnam so make sure you are willing for the risk and have good driving skill. Plus, it is easy to get lost, especially if this is your first trip in Vietnam.
Even if you pay attention to the halong bay weather forecast before your trip, it can rain heavily all of a sudden or your bike breaking down along the way.

Last but not least

A 3-hour drive can be time-consuming and tiring.
If you insist on this option, choose a good motorbike and protection gear, a map and phone that can connect to the internet to google your way.
It is best to go with a friend so that you have someone to rely on in case of emergency.
And remember that as a foreign visitor, you have no Vietnamese driving license so actually it is not legal to drive a motorbike around.
Generally, local traffic officers do not make things hard for you but you need to wear a helmet and follow traffic signals to avoid any trouble.

Halong bay from Hanoi by local bus: Pros & Cons

Pros:

Cheap and Yes, this option is really cheap and quite easy to find coach providers but it has many disadvantages.

Cons:

Language Barrier, Time Consuming, Not Flexible, Not Really Uncomfortable
The staffs at coach station don’t speak English, so prepare yourself with body language and some simple Vietnamese phrases, or else you may miss your stop. Coach stations are not located near the Old Quarter or West Lake where many visitors live so you need to catch a taxi, city bus, xe om, or Grab (like Uber) to the station. Coaches often depart early so if you sleep in, you have to wait for the next coach in a very crowded and noisy coach station.
The traveling time is long, up to 3.5 hours. And the bus will go around to fill up customers along the road. However, if you still want to go with this option, do your research or maybe go with premium coach providers.

They’re now replaced by high-speed trains, hurling through the residential street, just only feet away from people everyday lives including their dishes and laundry drying by the tracks, which all define the Hanoi Train Street…You can visit by yourself or book a Hanoi Daily Tours
