From Hanoi International Airport (Noi Bai) to Hanoi

We have a package that includes airport transfers, plus one night in a Hanoi hotel (before or after the race) for $55 twin share. This can be booked during online registration.

Otherwise you can take a taxi from the airport. Allow one hour to reach the middle of town and 45 minutes to an hour for clearing immigration.
