In Hanoi, buses appeared in mid-2001. Immediately, this new means of transport was warmly welcomed by the people. Over time, the buses are no longer the vehicles to serve the needs of students and workers but also become a nice means of travel.

On a bus forum, there are articles guiding people to travel to famous places by bus.

The cost is quite cheap, with only VND6,000-VND40,000 ($0.3-3) for two way. Anyone can travel without worrying about expensive. Moreover, traveling by bus is to ensure safety as well as reducing anxiety about parking space for each person.

However, to get a fun ride, you should note the following points:

-Selecting travel time to avoid overcrowding and long wait. The appropriate time is from 5-6am, 8-11am and 1-5pm.

- Do not carry a lot of valuable assets with you.

- Prepare change to buy bus tickets if you do not have a monthly ticket.

- Strictly abide by the rules on the bus.
