About Hanh Cafe

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!

Le voyage réservé a été annulé et reporté à l'après-midi. SI nous n'étions pas passés par l'agence la veille, nous n'en aurions rien su. Il a fallu batailler pour prouver l'achat de nos billets et que ceux-ci soient reportés sur le voyage suivant. Délai respecté.

Доехали быстро. Но автобус не новый, сиденье обшарпанное, столик пыльный. На сайте было указано, что отправление от офиса Hanh Cafe, но автобус находился в другом месте. До автобуса всех доставляли на автомобиле, было очень тесно (4человека сидели на заднем сиденье автомобиля, рассчитанном на троих максимум).

Остановка в полчаса через час после отъезда это слишком долго, ну и плевки водителя в окно никак не предавали ему уважения????????????

La station de bus à Hoi an était assez difficile à trouver. Mais les gens locaux nous ont bien aidés. Merci pour eux! Bien plus cher lorsque vous réservez par internet avec des euros. Bonne idée d’enlever des chaussures pour garder le bus propre! Belle façon de découvrir le pays.

I actually enjoyed this trip. Would give this a five star rating if not for the two hour stop in Hoi An.

Автобус пришёл на 1 час раньше. Я планировала ещё зайти в кафе и случайно оказалась на остановке так рано. Сделав круг по городу он снова вернулся на остановку, но все равно отправился на 15 мин. раньше. Мне предложили место или в конце салона, или на 2-й полке, сказав, что у меня слишком дешёвый билет (на сайте не было указания на разницу в цене при выборе места). Но потом набили столько народу, что они лежали в проходах ли

Le bus à fait des arrêts toute les 20 minutes soit pour récupérer ou déposer des personnes sur le chemin soit pour que le chauffeur s’achète à manger ... Nous sommes arrivé à 14h pour u lieu de 12h30 initialement prévu. Nous avons pris beaucoup de vus couchette du nord et sud du Vietnam sans soucis appart cette compagnie

We only drove 5 hours, during the day. Because we arrived early at the station we could take a bus1 hour earlier. That was great. The bus could be a little bit cleaner. And the view outside the window wasn't good, cause the were an big advertising sticker.

Wir buchten Hanhcafé Bus und sind mit Cameltourbus gefahren, mit einem anderen Reiseunternehmen, das auch als Kurierdienst fungierte. Die Gurte waren defekt, Koffer mussten aus Platzgründen im Gang stehen. Eine Stunde Wartezeit auf den verspäteten Bus.

Départ à l’heure, personnel un peu rude, mais nous étions seulement huit dans l’autobus alors nous avions toute la place disponible. Aucune interaction ave le chauffeur qui a jasé tout le trajet avec quelqu’un assis en avant avec lui. Cependant la route est fabuleuse et les paysages a couper le souffle, a faire au moins un fois !!

There are plenty of companies in Vietnam so it you can, pick another one !! We booked several trips with that company: always late (at least 2 hours), the people are not nice and we asked to sit on the lower seats, the guys said ok, then 30 minutes later he gave a his phone, a man was yelling at me for 5 minutes that I couldn't sit here and had to get out of the bus ! Those people are CRAZY !!! We could have understood without having someone yelling at us on the phone!!

Bus parti avec du retard, les sièges (coussin postérieur ) ne tiennent plus très bien. Et surtout si vous faites 1,80 mètre, cela devient compliqué pour les jambes. Le chauffeur à été cordial et prudent .

Иногда можно заснуть, но это не точно. Если рост свыше 177 то ноги не вмещаются. Водители часто останавливаются и решают свои вопросы с перевозкой грузов или чего-то ещё. Дают воду.

Top organisiert. Im Bus sollten wir die Schuhe ausziehen, damit kein Dreck herein getragen wird. Eine Flasche Wasser hat jeder Gast ebenfalls bekommen. Hatten zwei kurze Toilette Pausen eingelegt, was echt gut war. In Mui Ne angekommen wurden wir sogar noch bis zu unserem Hotel gefahren. Für eine Busreise echt sehr komfortabel. Nur zu empfehlen

タイムスケジュールは、9時間。途中に、数ヶ所ストップし、乗客のピックアップがあり、11時間30分かかった。帰国日のため、締め切り5分前に空港カウンターに着く。リアルに、余裕を持ったスケジュールにしないと、ヤバいですね。

Nur ein Essenstop um 4:30 pm bei einem Lokal, das mehrere Leute um ihr Wechselgeld betrogen hat. Nächster Stop mit Essensmöglichkeit um 1:30 am (bei 18 Stunden fahrt). Orte, an denen man umsteigen oder raus musste, waren entlegen. Insgesamt keine Kommunikation mit den Fahrgästen. Auf den hintersten Platz tropfte Wasser.
