Travel time from Nha Trang? (vice versa) + Canyoning tour, reviews?  (1 Answer)

I'll be visiting Vietnam in early February (yes I'm aware it's tet) I'm planning on leaving Nha Trang on the 10th and was originally going to get a flight to Da nang. Now I'm wondering whether it's worth spending 2 night in Dalat in order to do a canyoning tour which includes abseiling down the waterfalls. I was wandering if anyone had done this tour (groovy gecko or other company) and if you would recommend visiting Dalat mainly for this experience?
Also a lot of people are saying 5-6 hours from Nha Trang to Dalat while others are saying there is a new road that takes 3-4 hours. The earliest the bus leaves is 7am and the latest flight from Nha Trang to Da nang is 12:10 is this a feasible amount of time to travel and arrive at airport with enough time? Would a private car be quicker and any idea of the cost?

Cycling from De Lat to the coast  (6 Answers)

Hi all

I'm planning my trip to Vietnam - I'll be there in December for around 4 weeks and will be travelling from Chau Doc to HCMC and north to Hanoi.

I can't make up my mind about whether to visit Dalat as it seems a bit kitsch.

I though a good compromise might be to travel up Highway 20 from HCMC so I can pass the Dambri Falls then continue on to Delat for the night. I've read its possible to cycle from Delat to Phan Rang-Thap Cham or Nha Trang and that the ride is through beautiful scenery. says there's a guided cycle tour for70.

I feel that taking this route would allow me to see a bit of the central highlands without chewing up too much time.

My questions are:

1. Has anyone cycled from Delat to the coast?

2. Is it feasible and How long will it take?

3. Can it be done independently as the guided tour option seems expensive and if so how much would bile hire be?

Thanks so much for any help!

Da Lat - Nha Trang via Open tour bus - any overnight buses?  (4 Answers)

I want to go from Da Lat to Nha Trang. From what I gather from my internet research, there seems to be only open tour buses that leave around 0700 to 0800 in the mornings, depending on the agency and then arrive in the afternoon at Nha Trang.

Does anyone know if there are any open tour buses available that are overnight? Because I don't want to spend too much time travelling in the day.

Please advise! Thanks in advance! :)

One of my options for escaping Canberra winter next year is a possible two month stay in Da Lat, which I visited briefly a few years ago. Is there a local real estate agent interested in arranging short term rentals of small apartments/houses? Cheers.

Good Restaurant  (3 Answers)

I am going to be in Dalat for my wedding anniversary. We would like a really special meal. We are staying at the Sofitel Dalat Palace but we both have a preference to not eat in the hotels and would rather go out and eat somewhere local. We want good, local food please. Your suggestions are awaited.
