Train from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne

Getting to Mui Ne by Train

The train left Ho Chi Minh at 6.45AM and 7.30 AM during weekdays and 5.30 PM during Saturday and Sunday. It takes 4 hours to get to Muong Man Train Station. You need to bet at train station 15 minutes before departure. This is great way to interact with local. There is a dining car at the front where you can sit and some ladies came through with a trolley of snacks and drinks. There are power points by most seats so you can charge devices if you like. From Muong Man Train Station, you need to take a taxi to travel to Mui Ne Beach. It is 22 km away from train station (45 minutes of driving).  The train is also fun but it will incur a cab ride at either end

Price: 9 USD/ 1 pax

Advantage of taking train: No horns, you can get up and walk around, there is a food cart and a dining car, you can drink all you want and not have to worry about stopping at a rest room, and you arrive much more relaxed.

You will need to buy your ticket the day before to be sure of a seat. When you get to Phan Thiet train station, you can take a meter taxi to take you to Mui Ne beach for about 300,000VND ($15USD). Taking train from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne is not the most direct way, but much more relaxing than the bus - and you can enjoy a few beers and a pho bo (beef noodle soup) in the 1940s style restaurant car

You can pre-book the tickets through Vietnam railways or similar. They can deliver to your hotel and weekend train travel (gets very busy). It may cost a little more but you get peace of mind. You can book train ticket from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne online at
