Ho Chi Minh City to Da Lat Destination Reviews

We got the bus from Ho Chi Minh to Da Lat, and we were really happy with the service. At the pick-up point the staff were helpful in letting us know which bus to get, and every bus that came in was the same standard which was great for its price. They also offered us free transport to our accommodation which 12Go didn’t advertise.

Bus was comfortable. It was a bit cold in there, so I recommend wearing a hoodie. Personal couldn’t really speak English. It was my first sleeper bus so I don’t have something to compare it to but I would book it again. Recommendation!!

The bus is so narrow, not comfortable especially for person above 165cm. Better book VIP bus for more comfortable

I don't usually write reviews on here but I felt compelled to for this company. Hands down the best transport experience I've had in my life. Was so pleasantly surprised by the service provided with this company. From the moment you arrived at their office in HCMC staff are there to greet you and provide you with a chair and information. The busses run on time like clockwork every 15 minutes. The bus itself is super modern and comfortable you're provided with a blanket and water and wet wipes. The cabin is so clean and comfortable with a TV screen and usb charging ports, reading light with multiple settings. There is a shutter for the indow so no light comes in if you choose. There is also a curtain to the bus itself which velcros shut so you can have full privacy. I felt the driver drove safely and also didn't sound the horn too much or too loudly (which I was worried about as I was in the front cabin) when you arrive at dalat you are dropped at their super modern, clean and well staffed office where they even provide complimentary snacks and tea which was great for us as we had to wait there a few hours before we could check into our hostel. Overall a brilliant experience would highly recommend.

Very confortable and clean seat. Thanks.

The driver was weirdly touchy (another passenger complained about it too), the bus had to go into the garage halfway to get something checked/fixed, and (but maybe it is always like this) the bus was constantly making a low humming noise, which I can only assume was because the bus driver was not driving in the correct gear (too high) for its speed. Sometimes I would notice him shift gears and the sound go away.
Bus VIP 21, Duc Duong Bus, Apr 23, 2024
Unreliable schedule, no one informing about the time of arrival of the bus. Put us at the end on an another bus, rude personal.
Bus Sleeper 36, Duc Duong Bus, Apr 6, 2024
ViP Bus was actually a VIP bus (it's not uncommon that you book VIP amd get an old bus with tiny seats which would cost a fraction of the VIP). Unfortunately the driver honked even for vietnamese standards way too much (e.g. honking 4 times when one car on the other side of the street is driving normally) which didn't allow any of us to sleep. However, after telling and remining him he honked less. Other than that good driver and service, we arrived 30min before schedule.

Comfortable enough bus and journey with many stops for food and toilet breaks. Punctuality an issue however. Set off 45 mins late and arrived nearly 3 hours late.
