Bus Travel

Daily buses run between Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh (with a stop in Mui Ne). The nine-hour trip costs around 200,000d. Several buses head north to Hanoi, with stops in Hoi An and Hue, or inland to Dalat by connecting in Phan Rang. The trip between Nha Trang and Hoi An takes about 10 hours and costs 125,000d. Sleeper buses have bunk beds, but the incessant honking and reckless driving are bound to keep you awake all night. Bus tickets are sold at all tour offices in central Nha Trang. The northern station services towns in the Central Highlands, including Buon Ma Thuot and Quang Ngai. From the southern station, buses depart for major centers throughout Vietnam, including points south to Ho Chi Minh City, north to Hanoi, and west to the Central Highlands. Buses also run regularly between Dalat and Ho Chi Minh City, taking seven to nine hours during the daytime and a much speedier (and scarier) six hours by overnight bus. If you opt for an overnight bus, double-check it has sleeper beds rather than seats. A luxury coach between Dalat and Ho Chi Minh City costs 125,000d.
