Excellent resource! I've been trying to figure out how to use public transport in Vietnam for a while now, and this post has helped me get started.

I think it's a good idea to use public transport when traveling to Vietnam, since it can be a cheaper and more comfortable option than taking taxis or renting motorbikes. The people in Vietnam are very friendly and helpful, so I would recommend asking for directions at each stop when you arrive at any location.

Public transport can be confusing as heck in  country you have never been too before! I know my first time in Vietnam I was so lost and confused. It took me  while to actually get the hang of things. This guide would have come in handy!

I've got to say that public transportation is the way to go. You can get pretty much anywhere in the country using these trains, buses, and boats and it's cheap!

Utilizing Vietnam's public transportation is an excellent way to explore the country and it's truly economical. It's akin to a ticket to a whole new world! You can board trains, buses, and boats to reach almost any destination.

I always find it surprising that people in other countries don't just know how to use public transport. I guess it's not as common in the U.S., but I have lived in many countries where you can just hop on a bus or train and go where you need to go, without any kind of special knowledge or preparation.

@kikosan It is popular in the city areas and widely used but for millions of people that don't live in a city, it is a new concept and takes a bit of learning. I for one never was on public transport until I started to travel and it was a confusing experience for me at first.

I messed up public transport in every country I have gone to lol

I don't live in a major city yet when I travel, I like to go to them and it is so different than what I am used to.

I would recommend renting a car when traveling to Vietnam.

This is a guide on how to use public transport in Vietnam. I don't think I would be able to do this because I am not from Vietnam.

Public transport is a great way to get around Vietnam if you're not a fan of taxis. Here are some tips on how to use it:

1. Get a map. Vietnam's public transport system is surprisingly complex, and without a map it can be hard to find your way around.

2. Know the fare. The fare for public transport in Vietnam is usually quite cheap, but there are a few exceptions.

3. Be patient. The public transport system can be slow, and it's not always the most efficient way to get around.

4. Use the right bus. There are a few different types of buses in Vietnam, and you need to know which one you're using.
