Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne by Bus

Duration: 5 hours
Cost: 140,000 VND ($6)

When you choose to travel by bus, we recommend travelling with Hanh Café or The Sinh Tourist. Tam Hanh Travel is another trusted company that operates on this route. These companies pick you up in the center of Ho Chi Minh and also drop you off in the center of Mui Ne.

Kumho Samco has buses that leave every hour from 6:00 to 15:00. These arrive at the center of Mui Ne, but their departure point is 7km away from Ho Chi Minh city center.

Futa Bus also has buses leaving almost every hour, but we don’t recommend this company. Their departure point in Ho Chi Minh and drop-off point in Mui Ne are not in the center and require an extra taxi ride.

The bus ride takes around 5 to 6 hours but can increase due to peak hours in Ho Chi Minh.
