How To Get From/To Nha Trang Airport (Cam Ranh)?

Nha Trang airport or ‘Cam Ranh Airport’ is located 30 km South of Nha Trang city center. We recommend taking the public bus (Dat Moi) from the airport to Nha Trang city center. You can buy the bus ticket at the ‘Dat Moi’ desk at the airport.

When you are traveling with a group, you can also get a taxi for almost the same price as the bus. You can find them if you walk out of the airport for 200,000 – 300,000 VND ($9 – $13). Or easier, book a taxi on Klook for a low price of 220,000 VND ($9.50) and prevent yourself from the hassle of negotiating.

Nha Trang Airport by Bus

Duration: 1 hour
Costs: 50,000 VND ($2.20)

After you picked-up your luggage, you can take the “Dat Moi bus” or the “Airport bus” to Nha Trang. We recommend booking with Dat Moi bus, as this company stops in the center.

A third option is the Phuong Trang (Futa bus), but we don’t recommend this option as it won’t be as comfortable and also won’t save you any money.

Dat Moi

Nha Trang airport bus Dat Moi

Dat Moi operates bus #18, which is a white-yellow 29-seater bus. The journey takes about 60min and tickets cost 50,000 VND ($2.20).

Their bus leaves every 30min between 4:30-5:30 in the morning from Nha Trang centrum to the Airport and vice versa. The last bus leaves to or from Nha Trang airport at 19:55. (we are waiting for an answer from the company to confirm the earliest and latest times)

The bus arrives at their office on “Yersin street, 10” in the center of Nha Trang between the stadium and hospital. See here the exact route of bus #18 (Dat Moi):

Nha Trang station (Port stadion 19 augustus-10 Yersin) – Hoang Hoa Tham – Le Thanh Ton – Nguyen Thien Thuat – Tran Quang Khai – Tran Phu – Hoang Dieu – Nguyen Duc Canh – Nguyen Tat Thanh – Station Airport Cam Ranh.

Where to buy tickets

Bus tickets can be bought at the yellow desk at the airport. You’ll find the desk on the right-hand side when you walk out of the arrival hall. When you go from Nha Trang to the airport, you can buy the tickets at their office on Yersin Street, 10.

Airport bus

The second option is to take the airport bus to Nha Trang, but this bus does NOT stop in the center of Nha Trang. That’s also why we prefer the Dat Moi Bus

An airport bus is only a good option when you’re staying in the South of Nha Trang or have to take a taxi to your accommodation either way.

The bus stops next to the military hospital in the South of Nha Trang. From this bus stop, you can take a (motorbike) taxi for 20,000 – 30,000 VND ($1 – $1.40)) to the center of Nha Trang.

The airport bus is a 16 seater Ford bus and tickets costs 60,000 VND ($2.60). You can find the car when turning left when walking out of the airport.



Nha Trang Airport by Taxi

Duration: 45min
Costs: 200,000 VND ($9)

If you didn’t book a taxi, expect to pay between 200,000 VND ($9) to 300,000 VND ($13) for a taxi to the center. Make sure you agree about the prices up front. Taxi drivers often try to take advantage of tourists in this area and charge more.

Mai Linh taxi company is known as one of the more reliable companies.

Book Your Transfer with Klook

If you want to safe the hassle and costs of negotiating for a taxi, you can also book one online with the online travel platform Klook. Just provide your flight number when making the booking and the taxi will be waiting for you when you arrive.

A booking to Nha Trang city center starts from 220,000 VND ($9.50) for a maximum of 3 passengers.
