Train or Bus from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne?


How to get from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne?

The easiest way to travel from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne is to take a train from Phan Thiet railways station. This is the closest railway station to Mui Ne and about 45min from the center. You can take a local bus or taxi from this station to Mui Ne.

Although we prefer the comfort of a train seat, traveling by bus is also a good option. The advantage is that the bus departs from the center of Ho Chi Minh and also drops you off in the center of Mui Ne.

When you choose to travel by bus, we recommend traveling with Hanh Café or Sinh Tourist.

These companies pick you up in the center of Ho Chi Minh and also drop you off in the center of Mui Ne.

Futa Bus has also buses leaving 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.

Below you find a selection of the most convenient departure/arrival times:

Hanh Café07:00-10:00
3h140.000 VND (€5,50)
Sinh Tourist07:00-12:00
5h160.000 VND (€6)

The buses drop you off in front of “Sanddune hotel” in Mui Ne.

You also have the option of booking your bus ride through Baolau when the options are not available in BookAway.
