Ha Noi’s leading bus operator Transerco has commenced with the trial of sightseeing bus tour services using double-decker buses, offering tourists a new choice to explore the capital city.
Known as City Tour, the service follows a loop route that starts at the Ha Noi Opera House and takes tourists to the city’s famous destinations such as the Temple of Literature, Thang Long Citadel, Tran Quoc Temple and the Old Quarter.
The double-decker’s second storey is open and equipped with a retractable roof to shelter tourists from the sun or rain.
Currently only one bus has been put into use and more will be provided in the next two months once the service is officially launched, according to Transerco representative.
For easy recognition, the bus has red as its primary colour, supplemented by blue, green and yellow stripes and a stylised picture of the Temple of Literature’s Khue Van Cac Pavilion, a symbol of Ha Noi.
The double-decker bus is also equipped with a Wi-Fi system and devices to fix wheelchairs to the floor, making it accessible to those with disabilities.
