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 4,175 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.

train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express
★★★☆☆
We had a voucher four four people in a 4 person VIP sleeper. I went to the station the day before to try to get the actual tickets with cabin numbers but was told to return a half an hour before the train. We arrived an hour before and were told to wait and then someone ushered us through to the train with just the voucher. He was a helpful employee with no English but he got us to our cabin. The cabin looked fine but the teenage girls with us were freaked out by three different bugs going up the wall. Air con was nice and cold. It is great to leave from city centre in HCMC and arrive into the city centre of Nha Trang. We didn't see much scenery because we went overnight but previously enjoyed good views on longer routes. The toilets were very basic but functional.

train #SE4 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★☆
Of course the the standard is not as a western 1. Class train, but it was a very cosy cabin and we managed to get some hours of sleep even though the ride is quite bumpy. We were really glad that we brought snacks since the food from the kitchen did not look that delicious. But all in all a very good experience.

train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express
★★☆☆☆
As with other reviews, there was no Livitrans ticket place at HCMC. We had to ask platform staff for help. Carriage nothing like pictures and no different from standard despite paying extra. Small bottle of water and a face wipe was all that was provided. AC worked. Bring earplugs!

★★☆☆☆
Hmmmm... had a so so Experience- one of the staff in blue uniform( female) in charge of # 10 train car was pretty brutally mean towards myself and my wife , we bought tickets online ahead of time( 2 weeks) and received our tickets at the Ho Chi Minh City train station- as we were boarding, the lady in blue, took our tickets and pointed to car 10. We found our cabin, got settled in, she came along and ordered us out!! Pointing to another cabin 2 doors down- abruptly demanding hurry hurry- ( very bullying)As I was putting my shoes on she yelled hurry hurry!!)...WOW!! Then after we finally got relocated- She ordered us back into the original cabin!???!! Also we paid 135.00 USD for 2 adult sleeper!!- I think the local people paid 20.00 USD or 464,000.00 VND

train #SE18 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★☆☆
We took the 1st Class 4 bedder sleeper from HCMC to Nha trang on 15/02/2019. The sleeper left very punctually, so please make an effort to reach at least 30mins before the train departure timing to give yourself time to look for the cabin and settle down. The train was as usual to all Vietnam sleeper trains, generally nice and clean sleeping areas. For travelers more particular about cleanliness, please do bring along a large towel/bed sheets to sleep on. As they do not change the bedsheets or blankets after every trip. The train cabins start out cool, but turn very cold in the middle of the night, so do get ready the necessary preparation. Most of our experiences with trains in Vietnam have been generally positive. However this particular train SE18, reached Nha Trang 2hrs behind schedule, so I recommend everyone to take the ‘Reunification trains’ which are SE1-8 so you may reach Nha Trang earlier.

Train was clean and comfortable But one of the staff woke me up an hour and half earlier claiming that we've reached my destination and told me to get off. Lucky I checked using my GPS to find out there's still 2 hours to go to reach nha trang. So maybe the company can add a display that shows which station they are at so that foreigners can understand where they are at Otherwise the ride was great.

train #SE2 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★☆
It is was it is, your travel and accomodation all in one. The VIP sleeper was clean and looked quite new. USB charging point was a plus. Like other reviews, don’t rely on this journey for a good nights sleep as it’s noisy and you get a little thrown about. My wife was cold but I was ok, our AC seems to be broken and wouldn’t open or close any. Top bunks have storage above corridor before you enter the room which stored both our backpacks and other bags also. Overall I would definitely recommend, maybes pack some ears plugs and an eye mask for any chance of some sleep.
Oct 24, 2018
train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Saigon Golden Train
★★★☆☆
The compartment was reasonably clean, although some stains on bed linen. The floor of the toilet was covered by urine. The train ride is rather loud and bumpy so it is hard to get some sleep - take ear plugs. We also booked two lower berths but we were given an upper and a lower, and of course you share with others. As long as you don’t expect a luxury experience or a good night’s sleep, the train ride is fine. Had to pick up tickets from a different location than the one indicated on the voucher. We just asked around at the main reception and someone was willing to help us.

We booked VIP First Class Sleeper. It's certainly not that. It was a very old train and the only thing that distinguished our comparment from the class below was a vase of very shabby red plastic flowers. Perhaps we were unlucky and got an old train but it's nothing like the picture on the website. Also once you have made your booking it is absolutely impossible to contact 12GoAsia you want to ask questions or make changes, you just get in a loop on the website of previous questions and suggested responses and if it didn't answer your question the website sends you back to the beginning only to start all over again. Make sure your booking is correct as you won't be able to change it or get a refund. Tip turn off loud speaker in your room there's an off switch above the door.

We are sorry for any trouble but dozens of customers contact us everyday by going to the website and opening a support case or by entering their email and booking ID in the ‘Ask a Question’ section of the website.

Had a good trip between HCM and Nha Trang on what seemed to be a newish train. Cabin was clean and we were able to sleep well. Only negatives were the toilets which were not overly clean and the smell of which was throughout the train. Would travel again.

Given that this is Vietnam, the experience was pretty good. A man at Saigon met us at the station and walked us to our cabin. The cabin was reasonably clean. It was a smooth experience. Book with 12go with confidence.

Clean bus, comfortable bedseats, clean fresh blanket, enough toiletstops, safe driver. Minor point: we arrived 1 hour 15 minutes too early ..in the middle of the night.

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.

Kept stopping abruptly for long periods, was 1.5 hours late, dirty toilets, smelled like cigarettes the whole time Okay bed, roomy, and lights that work. Outlet didn’t work in my room. First class provided us with water and woke us up at our stop.

Took the night bus from Ho Chi Minh to Nha Trang, left right at 8 PM as stated and arrived earlier than expected. Smooth sailing all the way and this trip confirmed we will continue to bus rather than fly

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!
