Transportation from Nha Trang to Phan Thiet?

Hi,

We are going to spend 2 days 1 nite in Phan Thiet after some days in Nha Trang. What is the most popular and cost-effective means of transportation from Nha Trang to Phan Thiet? Train? Bus? Coach? What is the rate? How can I buy tickets?

Thank you very much in advance.

Phan Thiet is only 4.5 hours drive from Nha Trang. Single bus ticket by Sinh Cafe is about US$ 10. You can choose either 7:30 Am Bus or 8 Pm one.

Tickets can be purchased when you are in Nha Trang. Here is the office address of Sinh Cafe

NHA TRANG - NHI PHI

2A Biet Thu St - Tel: (058) 3 522982 - 3 823183 Email: sinhnhatrang@sinhcafevn.com

Hello, You can buy tickets for the bus at any of the numerous tour/travel agencies in Nha Trang. I would suggest you take the morning bus so you arrive around noon or so. Personally, I think traveling between cities at night in Vietnam is scary. The traffic police close down their check points and speed traps about five at night and all the unlicensed buses and trucks hit the road going as fast and as far as they can before daylight. Once you get to Phan Thiet you need to make arrangements (like taxi or motor) to get out to Mui Ne as there is not a lot in Phan Thiet as compared to Mui Ne. Much easier to find a hotel at noon as compared to midnight. I went from Mui Ne to Nha Trang on the back of a motor. Took about six hours or so with stops along the way. Lots of fun, but maybe not for everyone. Hope this is helpful.

Scott78,

Buianhphuoc is true, The best option is by Open tour bus. You can choose the sleeping bus or with seat.

Cheers,

David

Yes bus will be your best/cheapest way.Any small travel shop will sell you a ticket in Nha Trang from $6-$10.

However is it Phan Thiet or Mu ine you want to go to??

Lots of people get mixed up between the 2.Mu ine is the small beach/holiday town 20km from Phan Thiet which is the city,not a lot to do there(there is a golf course)

travelling from Nha Trang you go through Mu ine and the bus will stop at your hotel.Or it will drop you in Phan Thiet at their office.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your replies.

As you said, I'm mixed between Phan Thiet and Mui Ne. Actually I plan to visit Mui Ne in Phan Thiet. So the buses only stop at Phan Thiet city? What about Mui Ne? Do we have to take a taxi to go to Mui Ne?

Thanks.
