What is the simplist way to travel from Ho Chi Minh airport to Novotel Phan Thiet. Is there any taxi/cars or buses that leave the airport going straight to Phan Thiet. Do I need to go to the city to the bus station? If so do I need to book ahead or just buy a bus ticket when I get tothe bus station. I land around 10.30 in the morning so I think I will be out of the airport around 11.15am. Can someone suggest easiest option and booking method.
James, there are a few companies doing Open Tour buses from HCM to Mui Ne (Phan Thiet) for US$5 -9. However, I do not know whether you can get an airport pick-up so you may need to grab a taxi to the bus station; it won't cost much. There are buses that leave at 1pm and also 3pm (Sinh Tourist has the 3pm). Its about a 4-5 hour trip depending on traffic. If I was you I'd book it online which is easy on the Sinh Tourist site. You may also be able to book by email or phone and pay when you turn up but I'm not sure on that.
