Ho Chi Minh City to Da Lat Destination Reviews

Bus was comfortable. It was a bit cold in there, so I recommend wearing a hoodie. Personal couldn’t really speak English. It was my first sleeper bus so I don’t have something to compare it to but I would book it again. Recommendation!!
Bus Sleeper 36, Duc Duong Bus, Jun 6, 2024
The bus is so narrow, not comfortable especially for person above 165cm. Better book VIP bus for more comfortable
Bus Sleeper 34, Phuong Trang (Phương Trang), May 23, 2024
I don't usually write reviews on here but I felt compelled to for this company. Hands down the best transport experience I've had in my life. Was so pleasantly surprised by the service provided with this company. From the moment you arrived at their office in HCMC staff are there to greet you and provide you with a chair and information. The busses run on time like clockwork every 15 minutes. The bus itself is super modern and comfortable you're provided with a blanket and water and wet wipes. The cabin is so clean and comfortable with a TV screen and usb charging ports, reading light with multiple settings. There is a shutter for the indow so no light comes in if you choose. There is also a curtain to the bus itself which velcros shut so you can have full privacy. I felt the driver drove safely and also didn't sound the horn too much or too loudly (which I was worried about as I was in the front cabin) when you arrive at dalat you are dropped at their super modern, clean and well staffed office where they even provide complimentary snacks and tea which was great for us as we had to wait there a few hours before we could check into our hostel. Overall a brilliant experience would highly recommend.

Very confortable and clean seat. Thanks.
Bus VIP 22, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), May 16, 2024
The driver was weirdly touchy (another passenger complained about it too), the bus had to go into the garage halfway to get something checked/fixed, and (but maybe it is always like this) the bus was constantly making a low humming noise, which I can only assume was because the bus driver was not driving in the correct gear (too high) for its speed. Sometimes I would notice him shift gears and the sound go away.
Bus VIP 21, Duc Duong Bus, Apr 23, 2024
Unreliable schedule, no one informing about the time of arrival of the bus. Put us at the end on an another bus, rude personal.
Bus Sleeper 36, Duc Duong Bus, Apr 6, 2024
ViP Bus was actually a VIP bus (it's not uncommon that you book VIP amd get an old bus with tiny seats which would cost a fraction of the VIP). Unfortunately the driver honked even for vietnamese standards way too much (e.g. honking 4 times when one car on the other side of the street is driving normally) which didn't allow any of us to sleep. However, after telling and remining him he honked less. Other than that good driver and service, we arrived 30min before schedule.
Bus VIP 22, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), Apr 5, 2024
Comfortable enough bus and journey with many stops for food and toilet breaks. Punctuality an issue however. Set off 45 mins late and arrived nearly 3 hours late.
Bus Sleeper 36, Duc Duong Bus, Mar 24, 2024
The Drive was okay but I’m not sure if it’s better than the normal bus. We started earlier so really go on time. The chairs were very confortable but really not adapted to tall people. We got there very quickly. However, there was music on the whole time which was annoying and the driver drove the passengers to their addresses so once we arrived we drove for one hour just letting people go. I would recommend to look at google maps upon arrival to go out with other passengers. I managed to go out at the perfect time for the sunrise on the lake which was nice !
