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.

The SinhTourist Company Reviews

Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Mar 20, 2020
A no frills option. Bus needs cleaning. Staff and drivers safe and efficient. Holds less passengers than regular bus. Good in these times of social spacing. Were asked to take off shoes and bag them. Given hand sanitizer. Good economical option.

Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Feb 26, 2020
It was cheap and got us from a-b. The bus is made for smaller people, clearly, as my legs could not extend fully. I was bitten on the back of my ankle by an insect. It was great to see the countryside . The driver was good / safe.

Bus Express, The SinhTourist, Feb 20, 2020
A simple bus but only 4 hours and the driver stopped a few times at the right time and nice places. No complaints!

The service was good but berth should be adapted for tall people. For them is also more difficult to squat and slip into.

Bus Express, The SinhTourist, Feb 19, 2020
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.
EC
Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Feb 16, 2020
They should inform prior buy tickets that the space in the sleeper bus is for a average size of eastern/Asian people, not for western average. It was ok but because it was a short period, can't imagine afford this 12 hs
LM
Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Feb 15, 2020
The sleeper bus was not more comfortable than a normal bus. No bathroom and only one stop after one hour ride in a 4 hours trip. The bus had a bad smell and the air conditioning was poor.

Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Jan 13, 2020
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.

Bus Express, The SinhTourist, Dec 20, 2019
Internet on & off. 6 hour journey took about 8.5 hours. Guide wouldn't accept $5 note as had crease in it, but was given to me by Sinh Travel currency exchange! Bus was not Sinh Travel, but a 3rd party bus. Could probably get a better deal elsewhere. Passengers have no consideration when reclining seats. Just felt unnecessarily long.

Bus Express, The SinhTourist, Dec 18, 2019
All in all a very nice bus drive. Driver was nice and offered two stops to go to the restroom. Only negative thing was that the seats were too small to sit comfortably. But because the bus was quite empty we just switched places.
KL
Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Dec 17, 2019
Travelled with this company 3 times. HCMC to Mui Ne. Mui Ne to Dalat and Dalat to HCMC. No complaints with any of the journeys. Nice buses and comfortable. The road from Mui Ne to Dalat is incredibly bumpy but not the bus company fault. Overall consistently impressed.

Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist, Dec 15, 2019
Excellent trip, checked address beforehand, address shown on their website / Google is correct for departure on Hoi An, the drop off in Hue was at a local car park about a km from their office which was a bit of a shame as our hotel was round the corner from their office. Toilet break after 2 hours. Overall, excellent.

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.
