About The SinhTourist

Company Information

This bus operator has been in business since 1993 becoming established as one of the most popular travel companies in Vietnam after a name change in 2009. Sinh Tourist was initially based in a small coffee shop in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) but now spans offices across Vietnam which provide expert advice as well as assisting travellers in arranging tours and transport.

Routes served by The Sinh Tourist

Sinh Tourist offers a huge range of routes all across the country. It’s possible to travel to almost every destination within Vietnam you could wish with The Sinh Tourist, ensuring you are using an excellent, reliable and safe service.

From Ho Chi Minh City

One of the most popular trips for tourists is from HCMC to Dalat, Sinh Tourist offer one service per day on this route which leaves HCMC at 22.00, arriving at 05.00 and costing VND259,000. The journey in the opposite direction is priced at VND249,000 as it often takes a little longer, leaving Dalat at 08.00 and due to arrive in HCMC at 16.00.

If you’re in HCMC and wish to head to the beaches at Mui Ne then there are three buses each day making the trip. The services are spread throughout the day between 07.00 and 20.00, with a journey time of five hours. Visitors wishing to return to HCMC can jump on buses from Mui Ne at 07.30 or 13.00 each day. Buses are priced at VND169,000 for the journey in either direction.

Of course, The Sinh Tourist can also help if you are wanting to travel between Dalat and Mui Ne. There are two buses each day heading in either direction between 07.30 and 13.00, costing VND169,000 for the four hour trip.

One of the country’s main routes is the road from HCMC to Nha Trang and there are two buses a day connecting these cities. The journey typically takes around 11 hours and you have the option of travelling during the day or overnight on a sleeper bus. Tickets are from VND239,000 and buses depart in both directions at around 07.00 and 20.00.

From Nha Trang

From Nha Trang, visitors can head south along the coast or inland to either Mui Ne or Dalat. The bus ride between Nha Trang and Mui Ne takes around five hours, with two departures each day at 07.15 and 20.00. Buses for the return journey leave at 13.00 every day and tickets are priced at VND179,000 either way.

Sinh Tourist offers just one bus per day from Nha Tang to Dalat which leaves at 07.30 and is scheduled to arrive at 11.30. However, there are two buses leaving Dalat for Nah Trang each day at 07.30 and 13.00, tickets cost VND169,000 each way.

From Hanoi

All visitors to Vietnam will spend some time in Hanoi during their trip and you’ll no doubt want to visit the ancient capital of Hue. There is one overnight service per day connecting the two cities, leaving Hanoi at 18.00 (arriving in Hue at 07.00) and departing Hue at 17.30 (getting in to the capital for 06.45). This is a 13 hour trip that will cost from VND299,000 one way.

From Hue

From Hue, Sinh Tourist can arrange transport to Da Nang, a popular coastal city in its own right but also the gateway to Hoi An. There are two services each day from Hue (at 08.00 and 13.15) making the three hour trip to Da Nang. There are also two buses every day heading tin the opposite direction, both priced at VND169,000. From Da Nang all visitors should head to Hoi An, just 1 ½ hours away. There are two buses connecting Da Nang and Hoi An each day, priced at VND159,000.

International destinations

Sinh Tourist can also help you book tickets to international destinations, including within Cambodia and Laos.

From HCMC, you can travel to Sihanoukville by bus at 07.00 each morning, the trip costs VND678,000 for the 11 hour journey. You can also visit Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh, from HCMC. There are four services per day between 06.30 and 15.30 crossing the border into Cambodia. For visitors looking to return to HCMC, there are three buses each day from Phnom Penh, with prices starting at VND307,000.

From Hanoi, Sinh Tourist can arrange travel into Laos, it these are very long bus rides. There is one service each day to both Vientiane (22 hours) and Luang Prabang (24 hours), both departing at 17.00. Tickets cost VND674,000 to Vientiane and VND1,059,000 to Luang Prabang.

Pros

It’s very convenient that you are able to book all of your travel within Vietnam, and even to Cambodia and Laos, using just one company. This will save you a lot of time organising and arranging transport, so you can focus on choosing where you want to stay and what you want to eat during your trip.

As Sinh Tourist has been operating since 1993, you can be confident that you will receive a reliable and high quality service.

Cons

The prices of Sinh Tourist buses can be slightly higher than with some of its competitors, but you are paying for the expertise and professionalism of this long-established company.

Keep in mind

It is possible to purchase open bus tickets from Sinh Tourist, which allow you to hop-on and hop-off all along the route between Hanoi and HCMC. You’ll have to check the prices as it can depend on where your journey begins.

Travellers reviews

The majority of reviews of Sinh Tourist services praise the reliability and comfort of the buses and the operator has long been a hugely popular choice amongst travellers of all ages and budgets.

Criticism of these trips tend to focus on the same issues that plague bus travel across the country, such as fairly common delays affecting journey times and the lack of toilets onboard the buses. Unfortunately, delays are a fact of life when travelling through many countries and Vietnam is no exception. The absence of toilets is a bigger issue but, again, is one that affects travellers on almost every bus in the country.

El trato de la compañía fue adecuado, el personal nos trató con amabilidad. El problema es las prisas del conductor. Conducía de forma realmente temeraria.

Der Bus war ziemlich heruntergekommen, an den meisten Sitzen waren die Abdeckungen der Lehnenverstellungen kaputt oder fehlten ganz, bei mir fehlte auch die kleine Ablage (für die Wasserflasche und Kleinigkeiten) und das Sitzpolster war lose. Ich kann mich noch gut an bessere Zustände erinnern... Aber wir sind gut und überpünktlich am Ziel angekommen.

Замість 10-11-ти годин прямого сполучення їхали 16 годин з пересадкою у Пном-Пені. Instead of 10-11 hours of direct communication, we drove 16 hours with a change in Phnom Penh.

Voyage parfait au niveau des conditions de transport : bus confortable, clim ok, très bon chauffeur ( professionnel et conduite sécurisée), petit bus donc appreciable . La compagnie nous a offert une bouteille d'eau. Seul l'état de la route est à déplorer mais Sinh tourist n'y peut rien !

Вместе с билетами выдают бутылочку воды. Автобус немного "уставший". Кресла удобные, но для людей выше 180 см будут маловаты. WiFi работал отлично! На средний ряд сильно дуют кондиционеры.
