Travel from Hoi An to Mui Ne

I'm trying to sort out the best way to travel from Hoi An to Mui Ne in March.

Option 1: Plane to Saigon then 4 hour train trip back to Muong Man then car to Mui Ne

Option 2: Overnight train from Danang to Muong Man then car to Mui Ne

Option 3: Train from Hoi An to Nha Trang, stay overnight and bus to Muong Man the following day - the problem with this is that we would need to change our accommodation booking in Hoi An.

Can anybody shed some light on the above please. I'm having difficulty accessing the train timetables for Danang to Muong Man.

I've read all the blogs and am getting a little confused.

Option 1 may be best,but get a bus to Mui ne and it will drop you outside your hotel.Saves the worries of getting a taxi from the train station to your hotel.That taxi fare could be high depending on which hotel you are staying at.

Danang 3.33 22.40 4.45

M­uong Man 16.37 12.55 21.23

Above is the current timetable for train from Danang to Muong Man.

Saigon 12.20 5.30 10.05

M­uong Man 15.38 8.50 13.54

Option 1 seems to be the good one.

Thanks Viet1 for your response. Bus doesn't excite us, so think we might go with the train.

Thanks Vietnam Exotic for the train times.

I think we'll go with option 1 as we can get a train to link up with our flight.

Could you please advise how far Saigon Station is from the airport?

Saigon Train Station to Ton Son Nhat Airport is about 8 kilometers or 20 minutes by taxi in normal traffic.

Thanks Steve.

With such a short traveling time between station and airport, I think we'll be set with plenty of time to spare.

Will let you know how we go.

Muong Man to the center of Phan Thiet, around the Novotel, is about 15 kilometers and the taxi cost is about USD $10.00. (VND 200,000). However, to Ham Tien would be about twice that (depending in which resort you are staying, as Ham Tien is 10 kilometers long) and to Mui Ne from Muong Man Station would be between VND 500,000 and VND 600,000.

Hi Steve,

We are staying at the Novela Mui Ne Resort and Spa.

If you know, are you able to advise location within the 10km hotel strip please?

Pienamore,

The Novela is right in the center of Ham Tien, about 5 kilometers from Mui Ne. The taxi from Muong Man station should run you about $15.00-$18.00 (VND 300,000 - VND360,000)
