How to get from Saigon to Nha Trang

How to get from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Nha Trang

What about

Nha Trang is the dominant seaside city of Vietnam. Beautiful white sand beaches run the length of the city and some of the best resorts in the country extend to the north and south. Once the sun sets, you will find a vibrant nightlife scene with restaurants, bars and clubs that span all tastes and preferences. From elegant cafes to thumping discos on the beach, there is something for everyone to enjoy after a relaxing day on the beach.

From Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Nha Trang

It is simple to travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang by train, bus or plane and there are even two private luxury train services from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang. The overland trip takes between seven and 11 hours, often overnight. There are regular daily flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang’s International Airport at Cam Ranh which is approximately 35 kilometers south of the city.

From Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang by train

You have the option of several different Vietnam National Railways services from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang everyday and a once daily private train services provided by Saigon Golden Train and Livitrans Express. The morning trains from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang depart at 6am, 7.53am and 9am and get to Nha Trang seven and a half hours later. These are followed by 11.55am and 1pm departures which take you from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang by 8pm and 9.30pm the same evening.

Vietnam Railways has six overnight trains departing Ho Chi Minh City between 7.30pm and 10.30pm and arriving in Nha Trang early the next morning (VND640.000/USD30 for a berth in an AC second class sleeping car). The Saigon Golden Train and Livitrans Express from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang depart at 8.30pm and get to Nha Trang at 5.30am the following morning (VND1.100.000/USD50). These private train services can offer a more relaxing and comfortable journey with cleaner compartments, usable toilets and dedicated staff to assist any needs that may arise. Both Livitrans Express and Saigon Golden Train serve a small selection of snacks and drinks with more available for purchase. With all overnight trains from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang it is advisable to inform your hotel of your arrival time to ensure everything is ready when you get in as the usual check-in hour is after midday but with a prior notice you may sometimes get a room earlier.

From Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang by bus

The Sinh Tourist has two busses departing daily from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang both costing about USD10 (VND240.000). The first bus to Nha Trang from Ho Chi Minh City starts at 7.15am and arrives at 6.30pm with the whole trip taking just over 11 hours. The second is an overnight bus from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang, which takes only 10 hours; it departs at 8pm and arrives in Nha Trang by 6am the following morning.

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.

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.

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

After travelling from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang, one can continue north to Danang and Hoi An. It is 11 hours from Nha Trang either to Danang or Hoi An by land or one hour by air.

Hoi An is a popular tourist destination with its famous historical town centre that attracts visitors from all over the world. Both trains and airplanes will take you to Danang and from there you must transfer to Hoi An which is 30 km to the south. The Sinh Tourist has a direct bus route to Hoi An, which departs at 7pm, arrives at 6am and costs USD15.

Another option is to 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.

Passenger reviews out of total 3,552 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

★★☆☆☆
We had no tickets on the railway station (!!!!!!), so we didn't know until last moment if we will able to depart! This situation was very stressful. Everyone was looking strange onto your voucher and was not able to help us. In the train, we had 6 people in cabin (in 4 berth sleeper!!!), toilets were horrible and the train was full of cockroaches. On the next trip, we have bought airplane tickets, becouse this experience was horrible. Never again!!!!!

First time in Vietnam and trying train ride from HCMC to Nha trang. I took the afternoon departure so didn't really require a long deep sleep,otherwise maybe i would have a bad mood. The 4 beds cabin mostly filled with kids,very noisy..or maybe because it's weekend i'm not sure. Well it's a once in a life time experience rather than fly. Bed was tidied when i entered,toilet was still clean,room a bit smelly,2 little bugs through out the trip. I got the upper bed so i think it was a little bumpy,maybe better on the below i dont know. I suggest to bring your own food if you dont want to walk all the way to compartment number 1 for food and they only served instant noodle when i went there.

Trip was great. Clean for what I expected, and a comfortable trip. Only arrived 10 minutes late, which is nothing. Not too happy about paying 544000 for a 398000 ticket but that is what happens when you use a third party to book your ticket. Recommend searching out the VIetnam train booking site direct.

Staff were well organised and we were directed to our cabin efficiently. Cabin and beds clean and comfortable. Only major concern was the toilet! Once the train started moving there was water slopping out of it - the floor was 5cm deep in water from the toilet, and the water was at a high level and slopping around in the bowl which made it unuseable, not ideal for an overnight trip!

★★☆☆☆
we specifically booked a night bus with a toilet for our 11 hour journey from HCMC to Nha Trang but once we arrived at the bus stop we were told there was no toilet on the bus and the driver would only stop every 3 hours. I asked her if any buses had toilets on going to Nha Trang and she said no. If I had known this I would have booked a sleeper train or a cheap flight. The lady said the bus had changed and there was nothing we could do. There was not much room to put belongings and it was very cramped, especially if you were on the top deck which you had to climb up a small ladder to get to individual beds. I would wait and book in person so you can make sure you are getting what you think you are paying for. Overall the journey wasnt that bad, I kept waking up with a sore back and the stopping every few hours makes it hard to get much sleep. My shorter friend found the beds more comfortable than I did.

+ Generally comfortable. Easily accessible toilet and sink. Good lighting, air conditioning and charging facilities. - However, bed sheets weren't clean at all. The pillow case was especially alarming. Information at HCMC train station could've been better as it was really hard to get hold of our tickets.

I think it’s a little nasty that they don’t change the sheets, especially when your staying in the 1st class sleeper. I was a foreigner so the temperature was a little hot for me, therefore I woke up swetting. Thinking afterwords it may have been 20 other people doing the same thing before me is uncomfortable.

A sleepwr train is not for light sleepers. Its a great experience but I have slept less than an hour on a 7 hour sleeper ride. Very noisey, very bumpy but great experience though and I’m glad I did it and I will book one again! Try to book a bunk in the middel of the train though. The end close to the wheels are noisey AF! Im will book more sleeper train rides since they are cheap. O.. the toilet is a disaster. Try to go when its at a stop. So you wont p*ss on everything.

Sleeper cabin 1st class was good. 123 Asia were reliable, took awhile for tickets to be emailed through (several weeks) but they may not have been able to purchase until a certain amount of weeks prior. Company very reliable and all information explained in written format in both Vietnamese and English very clearly! Would definitely use them again.
12Go response:

Thanks a lot for the feedback! There was an issue with the Vietnam Railways booking system which caused all routes to be marked as open when in fact they were not yet open for sale, hence the delay. The issue has been resolved and should you need to book any further travels, tickets should be confirmed within several hours.

Best of luck on the rest of your travels!

Bus was comfortable but I was given a middle seat with no air vents so it was up to the people on either side of me if I was cold or hot. I wish the drivers would take a stand on loud kids because I had this obnoxious toddler screaming and spitting behind me and running up and down the aisles. Parents did nothing so I wish the driver would have at least tried to say something. If I spoke Vietnamese I would have said more than a silent, pleading look. The site also says there are bathrooms on all buses and that is untrue. Driver also stopped after 1 hour for a food/wc break at 9:30 pm. Then we didn't stop again until the journey ended at 6am so my bladder was about to explode. Decent service on the bus, but 12go also massively overcharged me for the ticket. Experience=meh

Dear Brittany Renee Gnau

We sell these tickets at the price mandated by Sinh Tourist. Often the ticket they give you when you exchange the voucher has the normal sale price on it when in fact this is peak holiday season and prices are significantly higher. If you believe that we have over charged you, please send us a photo of the ticket you received from Sinh Tourist and we will see what we can do about it.

Our sincere apologies for the hassle.

We booked our tickets a mounth ago but we still haven’t received our return tickets from 12Go. Our returning train is in three days and it is a bit stressful to not know whether we have a ticket or not. They have charged us for the tickets but we haven’t received our voucher.
12Go response:

Dear Martin Liljegren,

When you booked those tickets there was an error with Vietnam Railways that caused them to be marked as available when in fact they were not. We have been checking daily to see if they are available and will confirm as soon as possible. If you have questions or concerns it would be great if you could bring those to us directly by opening a support case, we are always happy to speak with you and that’s how these issues get resolved.

The bus was good and seats were comfortable. Driver was good but the conductor was like a military leader yelling at people at the bus stops "No eat, no eat! It would be better if they found someone who spoke more languages to interact with the international travellers.

Train ran on time but there were cockroaches all over the cabin. 12Go were great. This is just down to the Vietnamese railway.

Booking with 12go is really convenient, you only need to print out the booking voucher and show it to the officer at the station. We book 1st class sleeper from HCMC to Nha Trang, about 7 hours journey, officers are quite helpful, don’t expect much on the cleanliness especially the toilet, the meal we got was chicken rice, which is really not my taste, other than that all was fine. Great experience and thanks 12go!

It was in time. They showed an advertising that passengers get free food, but all we got was a bottle of water.

We went from Saigon to Nha Trang. Ticketing and boarding was fine. Had 2nd class air cond seats, but air cond stopped or was turned off after an hour or so. Toilets were filthy - especially issue for women. Food and luggage storage ok

Booking and ticket collection were seamless. My only complaints would be the freezing cold air conditioning through the night and sheets were not clean, which I had expected on the normal service- however on the Golden Train which is 3x price, I would expect clean sheets.

The rail service is GREAT! Way better than a bus and more comfortable than a plane. What a great way to see the country side. The only reason that I didn't give my experience 5 stars was because the toilet area was filthy. & YES, there's an overhead baggage area if you're wondering. Basically if you can fit it in the overhead compartment of an airplane you can bring it on the train.

We were very nervous about using the night bus after reading reviews, however it was fantastic! Much better than the 11 hour plane journey to get to Vietnam. The seats were comfy and the footwell was perfect for tucking your valuables into. It was essentially bunk beds on a bus and travelling with my three kids they loved it. Ridiculously cheap and that was for the VIP sleeper. I can't comment on the cheaper buses but if you can pay a little bit more it is well worth it.
