DaLat Airport by Airport Shuttle Bus

Duration: 45min
Costs: 40,000 VND ($1.80)

You can book a shuttle bus at the ticket booth in the arrival hall of the airport. Tickets cost 40,000 VND ($1.80) and the ride takes about 45 minutes. The bus drops you off at Ngoc Phat Hotel or at your hotel when it’s on the route.

But always ask where the bus will drop you off exactly. There have been some reports of drivers who dropped off passengers at the edge of the center. If that happens, you will still have to take another taxi to your hotel.

When you want to travel to the airport, ask your hotel or visit a local agency in DaLat to book your shuttle bus.
