Hanoi – Hai Phong Highway inaugurated

Update: 11 December, 2015

The highway project commenced on May 19th 2008, which begins at the Belt Road 3 in the capital city, traverses Hung Yen and Hai Duong provinces, and ends at Dinh Vu port of Hai Phong city with a length of 105.8km and a width of 33m with six lanes. It has an intended speed of 120km per hour.

Now travelers can travel from Hanoi to Hai Phong for about 1 hour driving to get in speed boat to Cat Ba Island, explore Lan Ha Bay and shorten the time to go on cruise towards Halong Bay. This Hai Phong Port city is also known as the biggest port in the Northern of Vietnam where the cruise ship will return for driving to Hanoi capital.

 Vietnam will do all efforts to fulfill the target of 2,000km of highways across the nation by 2020. At present, over 700km of highways have been built across the country. Thank to the inauguration, transport is becoming easier for transfer between tourist attraction points.
