    Hi There,
    I’m going to HCM next month, just wondering that can we get the tickets for the Phuong Trang bus at any travel agencies, i mean i heard that the travel agency did sell the ticket for the intercity trip as well, but am not sure if the bus is the agency’s bus or it can be the Phuong Trang bus as well. Or I need to go to Phuong Trang office only for the ticket?

    • dalattrip, 9 years ago Reply

      Ho Noon,
      you should go to Phuong Trang office for purchasing the bus tickets with saving. Because, some travel agencies will charge you some extra fees.

    We’ll be arriving at Tan Son Nhat International Airport at around 1am. I was just wondering are there buses that leave by 3am to Dalat? Or we have to wait until 6am? Thanks! 🙂

    • Phong N, 9 years ago Reply

      Have no city bus at that time. So you have to catch the taxi from Tan Son Nhat airport to Thanh Buoi bus station for catching early bus to Dalat (their early bus departs at 05:00AM).

  13. Andi, 10 years ago Reply

    Another question please –

    I intend to take the Phuong Trang Sleeper Bus to Ho Chi Minh on 17 Oct 2013 (Thursday). I have to reach Ho Chi Minh at 5.00 a.m or 7.00 a.m.
    As I can only book on 16 Oct 2013, will it be difficult to get “”sleeper” seats?
    On 16 Oct 2013, can I ask the hotel help me book with request to be pick-up from the hotel?

    Thank you – great website!

    • Phong N, 10 years ago Reply

      If you would like to reach Ho Chi Minh around 05:00AM-06:00AM 17th Oct 2013, you should book the sleeping bus depart on 09:00PM or 10:00PM 16th Oct.
      Once you arrive in Dalat, you have to ask your hotel receptionist assists you call to Phuong Trang bus to make the reservation in advance to guarantee your seats.
      Depending on your hotel receptionists, they can assist you make the reservation with complimentary or require the service charges. At present (01st Oct 2013) the cost of Phuong Trang sleeping bus from Dalat to HCMC & vice versa are 220,000VND/person/way (around USD11).
      Phuong Trang bus always provides the transfer service for Dalat city (pick-up & deliver) free of charge (applied for 10km inside Dalat city). So you can take advantage of this service for saving your taxi fee.
      Have an impressive trip!

    I will be arriving Dalat from Muine on 16 Oct 13 at 5.00 p.m. by SinhTourist Bus. I don’t where the bus will drop me off. (Bui Thi Xuan St?)
    May I know :
    Can I walk to “My Dream” Hotel from the bus station? Which route is the shortest?
    If not, are there plenty of taxis at the bus station and how much is the fare from the bus station to My Dream Hotel? So, the recommended taxis are Phuong Trang and Mai Linh?

    Thank you

    • Phong N, 10 years ago Reply

      Hi Andi,
      Yes, the office (bus terminal of Sinh Tourist) of Sinh Tourist is located in Bui Thi Xuan str,
      It take 1,3km to reach My Dream hotel.
      You should go to this direction: From Bui Thi Xuan str Head toward Phan Bội Châu str, Take the 1st right onto Nguyễn Văn Trỗi str, Turn left toward Phan Đình Phùng str (My Dreams Hotel).
      You can catch the Dalat Taxi or Mai Linh Taxi. Phuong Trang taxi is not operated any more.

    hello there.. i will be landing in HCHM in mid november at about 9am.. I would to take a bus from the airport to the bus station to take a bus to dalat.. how do I take a bus to the bus station.. and I was recommended to stay in mozjo inn while in dalat.. what is the distance from mozjo inn to dormaine de marie church as I am intending to attend the morning mass there.. is it safe to walk early in the morning or what do you recommend..

    • Phong N, 10 years ago Reply

      Hi Teresa,
      For saving, you can catch the bus from Tan Son Nhat Airport (International HCMC’s airport).
      You should ask the ticket seller (on bus) drop you off Ben Thanh station. (The bus details as Bus trip: 20 minutes/trip – Duration: 40 minutes – First trip: 06:00AM – Last trip: 06:00PM – Kind of bus: 55 seats).
      Then from Ben Thanh bus station, you just walk 0,4km to Phuong Trang Bus office (72 De Tham street) for getting ticket to Dalat. It’s easy and saving budget.
      Domaine De Marie Church is rather far from center. I think if you prefer to have the morning mass, you should have The Dalat Cathedral (Also called the Cock Church) located in center. You can book some hotel near it such as Dalat Plaza Best Western Hotel (just 0,2km) or Du Parc Hotel Dalat (side by side). Additionally, this church located in the safety road comparing with Domaine De Marie for your morning mass.

        hello there.. thank you so much for your help.. truly appreciate it.. will check out the hotel and time of mass in the cathedral as you mentioned on google.. thanks once again..

    • Phong N, 10 years ago Reply

      Hi Kiew,
      No bus at HCM’s airport, you should catch the taxi to Phuong Trang bus office and catch the bus to Dalat. From 08:00AM to 01:00PM daily every trip per hour

    Hi Dalat Trip,

    Thanks for the useful information. I am however interested to travel to Da Lat by rail from HCMC. I understand that the nearest railway station to Da Lat is Thap Cham Station, but where can I continue my journey to Da Lat by bus/van from Thap Cham town? At the railway station itself or other place?

    Also, are the train tickets normally available for purchase a day before departure at Sai Gon Railway Station?

    Thanks in advance for your kind advice.

      Hi PP Benham,
      Thank for your queries,
      We are pleased to make the clarify as follows:
      1. From Thap Cham Train Station, you can stand in front of it and catch the minivan or minibus to go to Dalat. However, this minibus/minivan is not recommended, it’s not good for foreigners.
      2. It’s better you should go to Nha Trang Train Station, then book the bus (high quality & big bus, recommended Phuong Trang bus) to go to Dalat, they have the pick-up & transfer service complimentary as well.
      3. Depending on your travel period. You can purchase a day before departure if your date is not fallen in Weekends or Public Holidays.

        Hi Dalat Trip,

        Thanks for the valuable information. My friends and I have had many trips to Asia, especially Southeast Asia, and would not mind using minibuses or vans for a 3-hour journey. Do you happen to know the timing of the minibuses/vans?

        Anyway, I wish to travel by rail from HCMC to Thap Cham on July 11, 2013, and I think it is not a public holiday or eve of it, right? And how much do train tickets cost, approximately?

        Thanks again in advance for your help.

        Kind regards,

    Hello! Could you please advise on the availability and timings of sleeping buses that would leave HCM on the night of 9th June to arrive in Dalat by morning? Also, how do I buy the bus tickets or check the bus schedules?


    • Phong N, 10 years ago Reply

      For arriving Dalat by morning, you should leave HCMC at 11:00PM, 11:30PM, 12:00AM, 12:30AM, 01:00AM.
      You should come the Phuong Trang bus office at 72 De Tham, Dist.1 for get the tickets. At present (04th June 2013), price is USD10.5/person/ticket/way or USD9.5/person/ticket/way. It’s better you should come to their office for paying & getting tickets, if you book & pay through hotel or travel agent maybe the price is higher or scam charge. Hihi, have good rip!

      Hi Nyx,
      From HCMC to Dalat & vice versa, Phuong Trang Bus Transportation has one trip per every 30 minutes. Many bus companies of this route, However, we highly recommend you should catch Phuong Trang bus because their bus is good, modern and sleeping bus as well. Besides that, they have the transfer service free of charge (applied for Dalat only).
