Don’t be a typical tourist...
Discover the REAL Vietnam!

Launching in 2024

What is VN Hop?

VN Hop has become THE way to travel in Vietnam and is all about discovering the REAL Vietnam through the eyes of a local Vietnamese…

Our main focus is to ensure that people have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Vietnam, and can discover places and things only the locals here know!

We have developed a unique hop on hop off bus system that covers the whole route from Hanoi (Halong Bay) to Ho Chi Ninh and vice versa, allowing people to travel at their own pace and allowing people to choose what to do and where to eat and sleep. As well as this, we have created spectacular Day Trips ideal for those looking to find the best in just a short amount of time.

We pick you up and drop you off at your hotel/hostels (Airbnbs have close meeting points) and bring you to places almost impossible to get to without having private transport. Meet other travelers from across the globe and listen to our local Vietnamese team onboard share stories about what life is and was like in Vietnam.

Whether you want a one-week trip fully planned in advance, or just hop on a bus and decide as you go, Vietnam Hop is perfect for every type of traveler.

Traveling on Vietnam Hop compared to "doing it yourself"

There is a myth that Vietnam Hop is a “touristy” way to travel and that doing it by yourself on local public buses is more “authentic”. But on public buses, you miss out on incredible hidden gems and you do NOT learn about the culture, the people and the history of places you pass by…doesn’t sound so authentic to us!

Vietnam Hop offers a MUCH more complete experience of Vietnam. Yes, we give you the huge safety benefits that comes with traveling with a company with years of experience. Yes it is a very easy and stress free way to travel. And yes you will travel on a bus of fellow travelers from across the world and not on a bus full of locals going to work.

But we also stop at hidden gems along the way allowing you to see the REAL Vietnam. We also have a local Vietnamese guide on each bus who will more than likely become great friends with you and will give you insights into life growing up in Vietnam that you simply won’t get from any guidebook or blogger.

Below is a very brief summary of the differences between Vietnam Hop and Public Buses:

*Wi-Fi Note: Other buses falsely advertise wifi, but it NEVER works. You travel through remote locations where even phone signal is hard to get, nevermind wifi! Vietnam Hop do not falsely advertise something that simply won't work!

Don't believe us? Find the best local bus company, find their Tripadvisor page, and then read the reviews. Then read Vietnam Hop reviews. We are far from perfect, but we promise you a much better traveling experience seeing more and paying less!
