How to travel from/to Nha Trang Airport (Cam Ranh)?
The best way to travel the 35km distance from Nha Trang Airport to Nha Trang city centre is by bus. This bus journey takes 1 hour and costs $2.60. Another option is to travel by taxi, which takes 45 minutes and tickets start from $9.50.
2 ways to get from Nha Trang Airport to Nha Trang City Centre
We recommend taking the public bus (Dat Moi) from Nha Trang Airport, also known as Cam Ranh Airport, to Nha Trang city centre. You can buy the bus ticket at the Dat Moi desk at the airport.
PRO-TIP: Travelling with the family? Vinpearl Land is one of the most popular day activities in Nha Trang. You can reach this entertainment park by a spectacular 3.320m cable car ride over the ocean. The entertainment park, often reffered to as the Disneyland of Vietnam, is filled with outdoor activities like a waterpark, ferrywheel, live entertainment shows and many other fun activities that the kids will love.
When you are travelling with a group, you can also get a taxi for almost the same price as the bus. You can find them when you walk out of the airport for $9 – $13. Or easier, book a taxi on Klookfor a low price of $9.50 and save yourself from the hassle of negotiating.
After picking up your luggage at Nha Trang Airport, you can take either the Dat Moi bus or the airport bus to the city centre. We recommend booking with Dat Moi as their buses stop in the city centre.
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 operates bus #18, which is a white-yellow 30-seater bus. The journey takes about 1 hour and tickets cost 60,000 VND ($2.60).
Their buses depart from Nha Trang Airport every hour from 5:00 to 21:55. These arrive at their office on 10 Yersin Street in the centre of Nha Trang between the stadium and hospital. See here the exact route of bus #18 (Dat Moi):
Nha Trang station (19-8 Stadium gates-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 at 10 Yersin Street.
The second option is to take the airport bus to Nha Trang, but this bus does NOT stop in the city centre. 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 city centre.
The airport bus is a 16-seater Ford bus and tickets cost 60,000 VND ($2.60). You can find the bus if you turn left as you walk out of the airport.
