Transportation in Vietnam

Air
With more limited time, flights present the best option to hop between the further apart destinations in the north, south and central areas of Vietnam. 
Vietnam Airlines (www.vietnamairlines.com) is Vietnam's national carrier. 
Jetstar (http://www.jetstar.com/) and Vietjet Air (www.vietjetair.com) are domestic carriers with a more limited network but lower price.

Train
Vietnam's train system is a lot better than is used to be, and while it's not all that cheap, it's comfortable, exceedingly scenic in places, and an overall very interesting and fun way to travel. If you're travelling in high season or especially over Tet, book as far in advance as possible.

Car
Rental cars for long distance travel is one of safest ways to travel in Vietnam, especially when you travel with a group. Normally it will cost around $100 - $120/ day.

Taxi
When taking a Taxi use one of the main companies such as Vinataxi (bright yellow) or Mai Linh (white and green), it will cost you around 12,000 VND/ km. Make sure you have the address written down, and try to show the driver that you see his information (picture and name), that way he knows that he can not take you around, otherwise you will report him to his company.
You can also use the service of Uber and Grabtaxi.

Motorbike
If you like a little adventure, sometimes in your trip, you should take a tour on motorbike, whether you are on the back of the bike or you ride it by your own. Try it, pretty awesome!

Cyclo
The cyclo is a three-wheel bicycle taxi that appeared in Vietnam during the French colonial period after a failed attempt to introduce rickshaws. A double seat (for Vietnamese – an average foreigner would find riding with a companion a bit of a squeeze) is supported by the two front wheels, with the driver sitting behind.

Bicycle
Long, with a scenic flat coastline, Vietnam can be a great destination for cyclists. The only really gruelling part is the northern mountains -- even the Central Highlands are not really all that hilly. Most nearly every town in Vietnam will have some lodgings, so you shouldn't struggle for a room.

Boat
This is only really an option in the Mekong Delta, where you can travel in both tourist boats for short-haul trips and take freighters for longer trips.
