    For years, tourists who want to explore the new Wonder of the World have been having to catch the flight to Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi) and sometimes Cat Bi International Airport (Hai Phong) then travel by car to reach the port and enjoy the cruise in the Bay. However, the opening of the Van Don Airport will give many travelers a better choice for transportation to reach their cruise.

    Obviously, Noi Bai International with the international scale owns the highest number of domestic and international flights in the North of Vietnam and Cat Bi International Airport is really near from the ports for cruising such as Got Ferry Port and Tuan Chau Port. But Van Don Airport still has its owned advantages. Despite of its scale is smaller than the above two airports and staying further from the ports than Cat Bi International Airport, Van Don still can assert its position.
