How to get from Danang to Nha Trang

What about

Wondering what the most popular seaside resort town in Vietnam is like? Look no further. Lively and urban, Nha Trang is most probably not the best spot to go if you are longing for solitude and tranquillity, but its white sand beaches, even if sometimes littered, running the length of a beautiful bay with several picturesque island scattered in the sea and quite a wide choice of activities are a big draw, and the title of the main diving centre in Vietnam ensures a constant flow of visitors of all budgets, both domestic and foreign, almost any time of the year.

From Danang to Nha Trang

Danang is an easy 1½ hour flight from Nha Trang or at least a 9-hour bus or train journey with road distance between Danang and Nha Trang of about 520 km. Almost all the trains heading south from Hanoi to Saigon call to both cities, and local and tourist buses are a decent alternative to the rail travel.

From Danang to Nha Trang by train

All the trains from Danang to Nha Trang are passing through trains on their way from Hanoi to Saigon. Usually there is an about 15-minute stop in Danang; the time indicated in your ticket is the time of departure: come earlier. It makes sense to opt for one of the two night trains: SE7 or SE5 departing from Danang and arriving to Nha Trang at 10.50pm/1.45am and 8.35am/11.35am the following morning respectively. Both trains offer first and second class AC sleeping cars plus soft seats but SE5 is cheaper: e.g. compare prices for berth in a second class sleeper: VND500.000 in SE5 and VND620.000 in SE7 (USD22/USD28).

SE3, which has Violette Express Train VIP sleeper car attached is less convenient from the point of view of its schedule: it departs from Danang after midday at 1.15pm and steals you the rest of the day arriving to Nha Trang late at night (10.15pm) well after dark. Though if you prefer to travel with comfort, do not mind spending a few extra bucks, enjoy seeing the country from a railway car and have your accommodation in Nha Trang already booked, it is obviously the best way to get to Nha Trang from Danang (VND930.000/USD42). If you do not mind travelling by day, consider TN1, as well (leaving at 7.10am and arriving at 5.55pm).

Note that it is highly advisable to book berths well ahead – especially if you are planning to travel to Nha Trang during weekends.

From Danang to Nha Trang by bus

There are both local and tourist buses ready to bring you from Danang to Nha Trang. Local buses use the new bus station in Danang which is about 6 km west of the main tourist headquarters near the river; while tourist buses depart right from the centre of the city. To get to the bus station from the centre of town, use bus #2. Prices for Danang-Nha Trang journey start from VND250.000 depending on the type of the bus. Travel time is from 10 to 12 hours.

Note Possibly the most convenient thing about taking a tourist bus from Danang to Nha Trang is that normally these buses pick up their passengers in the most popular tourist areas. That means you do not need to get to the ordinary bus station or railway station first. It is especially convenient if you have heavy luggage.

From Danang to Nha Trang by plane

Vietnam Airways operate two flights a day between Danang and Nha Trang at 7.55am and 12.55pm, flying time between the two cities being just a bit over one hour. Normally if you book at least a couple of weeks in advance, you are able to get tickets for about USD50 one-way and in any case under USD100 even in case with the most expensive tariff.

In Danang, the airport is conveniently located right in the centre of the city, some three km from Bach Dang and Than Phu area, which form the epicentre of tourist life in the city; but in Nha Trang, you will arrive to Cam Ranh airport, some 30 km south of the city. Airport minibuses bring you to the station in the southern end of Than Phu (USD3); otherwise take a taxi (VND400.000/~USD20).

Getting around in Nha Trang

While there are xe om (motorcycle taxi) drivers on every corner offering rides (and more), you are better off taking a metered taxi. If possible look for the green Mai Linh taxis as these tend to be the most reliable. Should you absolutely need to use a xe om, know that it should cost under USD2 (VND40.000) to go anywhere around the city centre.

Nha Trang is easy enough to get around by bicycle and these are widely available at most hotels for a dollar or two per day. For those venturing out of the city to the nearby attractions, your hotel should easily be able to arrange for a motorcycle rental for around USD5 (VND100.000).

Tip: We recommend staying on the roads near the coast and avoiding the AH1 as that can be a harrowing experience for even seasoned riders while the coast highways are relatively calm.

There are air-conditioned local buses in Nha Trang which are a great way to get around for only VND7.000 per trip. Check #4, which goes from the north, passes through the tourist centre and reaches Vinpearl (the local version of Disneyland).

Where to stay in Nha Trang

Nha Trang has hundreds of accommodation options in all price ranges and styles, most within several blocks of the beach. Prices can tend to reflect proximity to the water instead of overall quality, so take that into account when booking. During slow times you can often get large discounts when you book on the spot but do not count on this at 5am after your overnight train journey or during one of the Vietnamese national holidays.

The highest concentration of rooms is found in Tran Phu Boulevard (the street closest to the sea); Hung Vuong and Nguyen Thien Thuat, running parallel to the seafront, all south of Le Thanh Ton.

Things to do in Nha Trang

The main draw here is the beach which white sands stretch the length of the city. Beach chairs generally cost a few bucks to rent for the day and vendors stroll by regularly selling snacks and drinks. Depending on various factors both the sand and water can become quite dirty by foreign standards. If this is the case you may want to try Bai Duong beach which is a kilometre and a half north of downtown or if you are feeling adventurous – Bai Dai (Long Beach) which is south of Nha Trang, about half way to the airport along the same road. There are several places to relax and eat here and plenty of undisturbed sand to enjoy.

North of the city centre, on a hill overlooking the Cai River are the Po Nagar Cham Towers. The earliest were constructed in the 7th century and are remnants of the Champa civilization which ruled over much of Vietnam and Cambodia in ancient times. The site is still used today by Buddhist worshippers and is easily reached by bicycle from downtown. Wear modest clothes and expect to pay a small entry fee.

Most popular amongst local tourists is the Vinpearl Land located on an island in Nha Trang Bay and accessible via cable car from south of the city. The island boasts an amusement park, aquarium and water park plus all of the arcade style attractions one would expect to find at such a place.

Water sports of all types are available for people looking to enjoy the ocean. You can learn to surf at Bai Dai, go rafting down the Cai River or enjoy any number of diving and snorkelling outings. The sea life is still recovering from a long history of poorly managed construction and fishing practices but Nha Trang is emerging as a great place to get your diving certification and is certainly worth a few trips for experienced divers.

Onward travel from Nha Trang

For a different type of beach holiday, try Phan Thiet or Mui Ne. A train journey from Nha Trang to Phan Thiet takes four hours (VND220.000/USD21 for a seat in a second class AC car). It is less touristy than its neighbour resort town of Mui Ne and you can enjoy a very ‘go-local’ experience.

Tourist buses bring you from Nha Trang directly to Mui Ne in five hours (VND200.000/USD10). This long sandy beach has seen a lot of development in the recent decade and now is flooded with Russian package tourists and kitesurfing enthusiasts.

Apart from the two above mentioned beach resort towns, you can head inland from Nha Trang to Dalat in the central highlands. With the look and feel that is decidedly European and a climate to match, Dalat offers a nice change of pace after the heat of the coast. The Sinh Tourist busses depart daily at 7.30am and 1pm, costing USD5 and making the trip in four hours.

Buses, trains and planes connect Nha Trang with the biggest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, or Saigon. The distance between Nha Trang and Saigon is 400 km – allow from eight to 11 hours to get to Saigon if you go overland.

We had booked two beds in a 6-bed cabin. We ended up being 11 people, which was way too much!! The door had to stay open in order for people to be there. It was not a pleasant ride.

train #SE7 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Jan 28, 2020
We were left with the top berths which pretty much feel like a coffin. The a/c blows an icy wind frim just half a meter distance. The toilet is definitely off-limits to anyone with a sense of smell and a pair of eyes

Наш рейс отменили, нам никто не сообщил, приехали на автовокзал поздно вечером с сумками и облом, пришлось ждать несколько часов до 2 ночи рейса который все таки поехал, было много свободного места, и удалось немного поспать, берите с собой влажные салфетки если хотите спать на чистом месте.
HC
train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Jan 9, 2020
Cleanliness of the train is dubious. To climb up onto our top bunks required athletic flexibility as no ladder is provided. The berths are a bit hard and there are no privacy curtains. The train was punctual and it got us to our destination and we managed to sleep quite well. Apart from three other human passengers in our carriage a little mouse also made an appearance.
KM
train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Jan 5, 2020
We had booked and paid 1st class tickets, but ended up in the same 2nd class booth we had travelled on a few days earlier, only this time for a few dollars more. We did not get the seats we had booked, which we had been informed about, therefore ok, still not cool. The trains are very dirty (we even had cockroaches), there are people smoking on the train and no one asks them to stop. The AC cannot be adjusted, thus be prepared to be cold and catch a cold (like I did). Booking service was good, we received the tickets within a few hours, but if you end up not getting the seats and class you paid for, there should be a refund of the difference.

LB
train #SE3 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways, Dec 30, 2019
Train arrived on time at Da Nang and Nha Trang. Reserved seats clearly marked and plenty of room for luggage. The only issue was with 'broken' seats, in this case the footrest would not go down which was uncomfortable for a ten hour journey.

Service from 12goasia was really efficient and very user friendly.
SK
train #SE7 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Dec 22, 2019
The train was quite cramped. No head room whatsoever, specially for the upper berths. The laundry was quite dirty - the bedsheets, the blankets are just folded once you used them and ready for the next guests, the pillows are dirty too.
MM
train #SE1 Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways, Dec 4, 2019
Although the cabin appeared clean at the beginning, we spent the 8 and a half hour journey killing cockroaches. 16 in total. Very uncomfortable trip due to this.
CH
train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 21, 2019
Faster than bus, however very dirty, toilets very dirty. Cold and dirty cabinets. No place to charge any device. Sheets and pillow not changed. Would only recommend if you want to travel faster than bus. Best choice would be flying and bus.
AD
train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 20, 2019
Carruagem muito barulhenta, sem local para carregar telemóvel ou qualquer outra coisa, os lençóis não são mudados, apenas esticados e os colchões pouco confortáveis e estávamos em primeira classe. Apesar de tudo tinha um aspecto aparentemente limpo. Enfim, uma aventura que aconselho.

Very small spacing as I'm 5'10, 210 pounds. I can fit in but don't expect to turn or sit up. Can be good if your just sleeping the whole way. Higher beds are closer to the ac.
IL
train #SE3 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways, Oct 9, 2019
Very easy trip that suited us well since we wanted to go by anything else but flight. Nice seats and they sold food and drinks on the train. The bad thing was the cockroaches and the toilets.
MJ

Especially the toilets are not clean, the rest also not.
LF
train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Sep 26, 2019
My blanket was in a ball on my bed when I arrived and there was a dead bug under my pillow. The train itself is very noisy and with the wind I needed headphones to listen to music. There is no curtain for privacy of course the toilets are nasty. The train was also an hour late. On the good side of things: the staff warned me personally when we arrived at my stop (ie woke me up).
RD
train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train, Sep 14, 2019
I had come to Vietnam to travel the country by train and was not expecting high standards of any type, The trains and station facilities are very basic and there is a definite lack of information for tourists, no help from staff at station not a word then again nobody in this country seems to want to engage with tourists or not me at least ??? I have enjoyed my train journeys and I’ve seen some fantastic scenery along the way and would recommend you for yourself however just don’t expect high standards that you may be used too in your own country. I paid for violette train SE3 which should have had luxury compartments as in the description and cost was far higher than standard price ??? Apparently this was the only ticket available so I had no choice, standard is always good enough for me. There was a woman sitting at a small desk at the station where I swapped my voucher and was given a ticket for getting through the automatic barriers. I boarded at Danang and my cabin was very dirty from previous occupants from Hanoi to Danang, there was lots of insects crawling on the walls, the bedding had been used already and just simply folded for me to reuse. I quickly realised that my compartment was no different to any other compartment on the train regardless of ticket type you paid for so makes me wonder why I had to pay far more for the same thing ? I arrived at Nah Trang 20 minutes late, not bad for over 9 hour journey. Go for it and give it a try but don’t expect too much, certainly don’t expect a Vietnamese to acknowledge you or speak to you, maybe push you out the way, give you dirty looks, run off with your change !
