Local Tips For The Best Saigon To Dalat Bus Trip

Buying the bus ticket

  • Choose the lower deck if you easily get carsickness. 
  • Choose the seats in the middle of the bus to avoid being disturbed when the door is open
  • The seats at the back of the bus are often hotter than others as it is the place where the bus engine is located. Sitting at the back, you will need to share the seats with strangers.
  • If you do not stay in the city centre, you should choose the bus providers which have free pick up from your hotel. 
  • You should book a night bus departing from Saigon so you can reach Da Lat in the morning.
  • Check the arrival bus stop carefully before booking.

Being on the bus

  • Carry your handbag to put valuable, fragile items there
  • The bus will stop for the restroom and food. You can choose to bring your own food or try out local food. But double-check if the food is in good condition
  • Always fasten your seatbelt.

Hi! Actually, beds on limousine sleeper bus between Dalat - Ho Chi Minh are usually in same size (around 1.6m long). For the most comfortable bed, you should try Trong Minh or Kumho Samco Limousine sleeper bus.

@Agnes chew:

Hi! You should book for the vip limousine van in advance at least 2-3 days before your trip if traveling in November. The returned ticket price at present is about 1,200,000 VND/pax (about USD 50/pax). Please note that as your trip is at the end of this year, the price may change due to the rise of costs.
