Jeep or similar hire Hanoi and Son La.
I am going to north Vietnam in the summer for 6 weeks with 3 other students to research around Son La. We are looking to hire a jeep or similar vehicle to travel from Hanoi to Son La and then around the rural areas of Son La for the 6 weeks. Could anyone recommend any companies providing this services? And do you think relying on hitch-hiking with locals is a good idea? Thank you!
Municipality: Ha Noi
you can go to big Bus station: Giap Bus ( 8 km away from Hoan Kiem Lake - city center).
Bus to Son La are available from 6 am to 6pm.
You can use budget bus with seat or luxury bus with bed as well.
In my view, you should take luxury one.
If you need more information for Son La or northwest of Vietnam, please come this site to see more:

I am very happy to help you when you come to Vietnam!
Have a nice trip in Vietnam!

I would suggest they use a local driver to drive and let themselves relax as the traffic is tricky and can be dangerous. Also, they are not allowed to drive unless they have a Vietnamese drivers license, the international license doesn't cut the mustard here anymore. They can take the time and convert their license into a Vietnamese license but it takes time and money and translations too. At some testing locations they have to take a drivers test anyway and the written part is in Vietnamese only. If they take the test always choose the biggest answer as it is mostly the right answer. Good luck.
