Are you travelling in a group? If yes, then it might be more convenient to take a taxi from Nha Trang Airport to the city centre.

With rates from 226,000 VND ($9), the price is almost the same as a bus ticket when you divide the cost.

You can book your private transfer online beforehand through BookAway. This saves you the hassle of negotiating a rate with taxi drivers. BookAway also offers cleaner and more spacious cars compared to normal airport taxis.

Book a Taxi with BookAway

If you prefer to get your taxi onsite, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding them outside the airport arrivals hall. Nha Trang drivers like to ask for a fixed rate instead of turning on the meter. Make sure you agree on a reasonable price upfront!
