Company Information

Hanh Café is a travel operator that specialises in arranging travel schedules throughout Vietnam. It’s possible to travel by bus from Hanoi down to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in the south of the country, stopping in all the major tourist destinations you’d expect.

Hanh Café is a well-established operator with around 20 years of experience so far. The buses offered along these routes typically seat approximately 40 passengers.

Routes served by Hanh Café

From/to HCMC

There are plenty of buses departing the company’s base in HCMC, with five buses each day heading to Nha Trang between 08.00 and 22.00. The journey takes around 9 ½ hours so you can choose whether to travel overnight, arriving by 07.30, or if you’d prefer to travel during the day and be in Nha Trang by 17.30. Seats are priced at VND210,000 for all departures so the choice is yours.

There are also four departures every day heading in the opposite direction, from Nha Trang to HCMC. These departure times also allow you flexibility to suit your schedule with buses leaving Nha Trang at 08.00, 20.00, 20.30 and 21.00.

Mui Ne is an incredibly popular destination for visitors, especially those based in HCMC, and there are plenty of options with Hanh Café. There are seven buses per day heading to Mui Ne throughout the day from 07.00 until 20.00, the trip usually takes five hours so you can choose whether you wish to arrive by lunchtime or in the evening. There are six buses heading in the opposite direction between 01.00 and 16.00, priced the same at VND140,000.

From/to tther destinations

Of course, if you want to travel between Mui Ne and Nha Trang, or vice versa, there are daily services connecting the two destinations. Two buses a day travel in both directions, leaving Mui Ne at 01.00 and 13.00 and departing Nha Trang at 08.00 and 20.30. This four hour journey costs around VND180,000 in either direction.

There are plenty of other popular routes that are serviced by Hanh Café, including a daily 11 hour bus between Da Nang and Nha Trang. Priced at VND340,000, this bus departs Da Nang at 16.00, travelling through the night to arrive in Nha Trang at around 03.00.

If you’re planning on heading to Hanoi then you’ll be pleased to know that there are services connecting he capital with Da Nang and Hue. There is a bus departing Da Nang daily at 14.30, priced at VND320,000, which is due to arrive in Hanoi at 04.30. If you’re in Hue, you can jump aboard a bus at 17.30 which will have you in Hanoi at 07.30 the next morning for around VND280,000.

Pros

The biggest advantage travelling with Hanh Café is the very competitive prices. These buses tend to be cheaper than tickets with some of the operator’s competitors and far less than travelling by train.

The bus itself is pretty comfortable, certainly ideal for some of the shorter trips, but it may be a bit cramped for tall visitors.

Cons

The lack of bathrooms onboard these buses is a particular problem. Although there are breaks throughout the journey, they can be fairly irregular and using public toilets during the night may bit always be the most pleasant experience. Unfortunately, this is an issue with most buses throughout Vietnam.

Typically, Vietnamese buses experience frequent delays and Hanh Café services are no exception. Traffic across the country is unpredictable and services will often arrive later than expected. However, with Hanh Café this is not always that inconvenient as the scheduled arrival times can be less than ideal in the first place. Sometimes arriving at 05.30 instead of 04.30 could be handy as you’ll have less time to wait before you can arrive at your accommodation to check in.

Keep in mind

If you require some expert advice about your itinerary then why not pop into one of the Hanh Café offices? There are several throughout the country including in HCMC (229 Pham Ngu Lao), Nha Trang (10 Hung Vuong) and Hoi An (2 Thai Phien).

Travellers reviews

Travellers are always pleased with the price of Hanh Café services, with very reasonable long-distance trips available. Fares are always far lower than tickets in private train carriages and even below the standard Vietnam Railways prices. For this reason alone many visitors recommend Hanh Café to travel around the country.

As is the case with many bus operators across the country, the biggest complaint usually tends to be the lack of bathrooms on the buses. To those used to travelling on western buses, this will be a shock at first but you’ll have to quickly get used to it if you want to travel by bus!

Travelled from Da Lat to Nha Trang in Oct 2019. Bus will get you from A to B however don't expect anything more. Hahn cafe will put you on a bus that picks up passengers all around Da Lat, taking extra time, Hanh cafe is just one of the stops on the route. Bus will stop for 30 minutes, 1hr from Nha Trang also. Drop off point was not Hanh cafe in Nha trang (rather close by). Bus itself was good.

The driver drive extremely slow until we are one hour behind our schedule and we missed almost all the attractions' operating time :( He also did not inform us anything about how long is the break time we can have when the bus stop at the R&R.

The bus left right on time. On the way there was some trouble with a wheel so we stopped for like 40/50 minutes. Stopped again right outside of Nha Trang where we had to move to another smaller bus with not enough seats. The bus drove to Nha Trang city, but it died off a thousand times. The driver was more than angry about this and was very rude.

We read some bad reviews on this trip, but as it is the only option to get to Nha Trang we decided to go for it. And were positively surprised. Everything was well organized. Our bus was only half full and drove threw with no problems. No annoying movies or music. We arrived in Nha Trang one hour late, which was actually positive for us and while waiting for our next bus we could use the toilet from the Hanh office. Most comfortable over night bus so far!

Driver good. Speed sensible. Enough stops. BUT WHY EXTRA PASSENGERS BEYOND SEATING CAPACITY ALLOWED? SLEEPING ON FLOORS RESTRICTING OTHER PASSENGER ACCESS AND MOVEMENT.

Voyage à prix très correct, néanmoins, très secoués sur la route. C'est agréable d'être en position couchée. A savoir, pas de toilettes dans le bus, il y a eu un arrêt de 5 minutes, sans explication (c'était la pause pipi), et plus tard un arrêt de 30 minutes. Globalement satisfaite par ce voyage.

After a confusing start of a different small bus to big bus transfer everything was excellent. Bus dropped us off to our hotel in Mui Ne and saved the hassle of catching taxi. We are now catching Hahn Cafe bus to Nha Trang in 3 days time.
