How to get to/from airport Ho Chi Minh city

Other resorts Vietnam

Unfortunately, ground-based long distance public transport at the airport of Ho Chi Minh city is poorly developed. Rather, it is non-existent. In order to get to other resorts Vietnam by land, you have to first drive to the centre of Ho Chi Minh city, where possible, to spend the night, and then continue the journey by train, bus or by water. The nearest resorts of Phan Thiet and MUI ne and Vung Tau can be reached by taxi or transfer. But it will cost expensive: to MUI ne taxi ride will cost 80-120 dollars per car.

To the centre of Ho Chi Minh city

  • City bus
    Автобус №152 у терминала Bus No. 152 from the terminal

    Very cheap and quite convenient way to get from the airport to the city centre (to the market Ben Thanh, or the tourist district of Ho Chi Minh city) or from the city to the airport is to take the local city bus No. 152. The buses are comfortable, air-conditioned, with TV and usually almost empty. Journey time to the centre from 20 to 40 minutes depending on traffic. The buses on this route from 6:00 to 18:00. The fare is 5000 Dong (about 10 rubles, see Vietnam currency, exchange rate). Payment at the entrance to the bus driver or in a special machine (you need to throw the money in the plastic box beside the driver, and he "otsenivaet" you surrender, pressing the button on the unit).

    The bus you will find immediately when you exit the international and domestic terminal. Designated bus stop marked with the bus you will learn easy: it is marked front and rear number of route 152. In a pinch, you can exit the Parking area of the airport and go on the road (street Truong Son) to the right (if you stand with your back to the airport) to the first stop and wait for bus there. Do not believe the taxi drivers who will say that the bus No. 152 no longer walk.

    It should be borne in mind that the market Ben Thanh is not the destination: the bus stops at the front of the market, and then follows on to the last stop. Not to miss tourist area, it is better to go to Ben tan (five minutes walk to the tourist areas) or the next stop (just next to tourist area). Stop Ben tan can be found on the number of passengers (usually there are a lot of people goes and comes), to the indoor market, and a large crowd in this place of buses. Do not reverse direction when you get on the bus to go to the airport, because the bus route is not circular.

  • Taxi
    Такси в Хошимине Taxi in Ho Chi Minh city

    A taxi from the airport to the tourist area you can catch from 7 $ (150 000), this is storge. But on average expect $ 8-10. Do not worry originally called the taxi driver prices, for example, 20 dollars. Negotiate to the real price of 7-10 dollars or find another taxi driver. There are also taxis on the meter. The trip meter will cost about the same, 7-10 dollars.

    Always be prepared for the tricks of taxi drivers, especially if you decide to take a taxi outside the airport. Ho Chi Minh city taxi drivers are very famous for their tricks to deceive customers. Trip at an agreed fixed price is preferred, because very often cheat with counters. But the contract price be sure to check in advance and show it to the driver on paper to be sure that you are being taken for$ 5, not 5 hundred dongs and the like. Another common trick of taxi drivers try to bring you in "your" hotel, under the pretext that the desired hotel is full, no longer exists, etc. There are many ways a taxi driver try to "cheat" you. Some of which, and the ways of dealing with them in more details in the section "security in Vietnam".

Hello! A little late with the answer, I missed your question. In General, theoretically it can be done, but I wouldn't advise you not to. First, moving to slip-the bass is not as far away on the train. I am sure that you will arrive in Ho Chi Minh city in the morning well rested and fresh troops, at least I have never worked with slip-bass. Second of all trips depart very early, if memory serves, at 7 o'clock. At this time the Agency does not work, and there is a chance to join the tour.the group already boarding the bus on De Tham street. and if you have time to find the street and the bus and put you on the bus on this tour bought tour without a question. It's safety (because you will have to answer), and who knows, maybe the guides and drivers double-checking for a dowry, to risk possible because you will not. So better go to Ho Chi Minh city in the afternoon take a walk and buy a tour for tomorrow, get some sleep and the morning will go.
And now for the return journey. Do not expect that you return from the excursion to the time you say, feel free to add a couple of hours. So the trip back in the evening the bass will be in question. ...

I would like to see your itinerary on both flights, to accurately answer your question. There certainly indicate the terminal of arrival. However...
1. Most likely from Nha Trang to Saigon arriving at the domestic terminal. Once you have your baggage, you proceed on foot (5-10 minutes slowly) to the international terminal and there pass through immigration and customs and hop on a flight to Moscow. One hour is not enough, but theoretically should have time if there are no delays. If possible when boarding the flight to Nha Trang from Luggage to Moscow, do it. Directly ask at the counter when you check, is it possible to Moscow in the Luggage issue. If the English don't talk, there's no problem, girls in Russian only so fuck.
2. Perhaps by some miracle your flight from Nha Trang arrives in the domestic and international terminal. Never met, but all of a sudden. Then you go through passport control and customs in Nha Trang, well, in General, in this case, you have no problems.

in General, if possible, give at least some information about the flight, though the airline. ...
