Go to Hoan Kiem lake, eat some ice cream, watch a puppet show just near the lake then spend the day exploring the Old Quarter.

Hey guys! I will be in Hanoi next weekend and I was wondering if there is any possibility besides taking a taxi/hotelshuttle from the airport during the night? I will arrive around 11 pm, so as far as I understood, the bus is not operating at this time? Would be grateful for some advice :) Thanks!

Which is the airline you flight in? As far as I know, many airlines shall provide buses for passengers at any hours. Last time I arrived Hanoi from Ho Chi Minh city at 1 a.m, I bought a bus ticket of the airline to the city center. You may ask the flight attendants or airport receptionists if there are buses available.

I had 2 mid-night flight back to Hanoi last week. There are 2 types of public transport you can use:
- City bus: from Noi Bai Airport to City center. Last bus from airport is at 11:30 pm. Mainly serving foreign traveller, It goes to city center, stop at some City's popular spots and hotels. The bus cost 30.000 d ( < $1.5)
- Bus of some Airlines company: last time I used Vietjet bus which runs 24/24 hour. It goes to city center, but different route from the above ones. It also goes to city center but does not stop at popular spots or hotels. I caught the bus at terminal 1 - national terminal. Maybe you need to ask people at International terminal whether the bus is available there. If not, you can take a free shuttle from international terminal to national terminal. The bus cost 40.000 d (~ $2)

We're already in Hanoi and we want to BUY a cheap motorcycle in order to travel around for 5 weeks! Do you have any idea WHERE we could buy a motorbike which is CHEAP?
Minh Tân Nguyễn , Hanoi, VNM, 2 months ago
What's your budget? And what kind of motorbike are you looking for? There are some for sale on Craigslist. Or you can walk around and buy back from other backpackers.

This summer I'm going 7 days in Hanoi with a group of 10 people... We want to move around Hanoi to visit some places (mountains / beach)...
Do you have some tips to rent a car or a small bus with a driver ? And some tips to rent scooter ?
And any suggestion about nice places to visit around Hanoi ?

Scooters are readily available for hire all around the old quarter, through hotels, shops or the odd sandwich selling lady. You can shop around a bit for the best price. Aim at 5-10 dollars per day. Monthly hire is a lot cheaper.
