About Nha Trang Train Station
Nha Trang Railway Station is a relatively small and unattractive station built in the early 1900s, and not 1832 as some sources suggest which is obviously incorrect as the first trains did not start operating in Vietnam until 1881. The station was constructed by the French Public Works Department at a time when Nha Trang was first starting to become popular as a seaside resort.
Despite the subsequent very large increase in the numbers of people visiting Nha Trang very little investment has been put into improving Nha Trang Railway Station since the time it was first built.
Nha Trang Railway Station gets very busy during the peak holiday season from January to August, particularly at the weekends. If you are planning to get a train from Nha Trang turn up at the station a short time before your train is due to depart as there is not enough seating for everyone, and very few toilets.
Facilities at Nha Trang Train Station
Vietnam Railways provides few facilities for travellers at Nha Trang Railway Station. The station has a large waiting room and three mobile ‘portacabin’ style toilets on the main train platform and that’s all. You can, however, buy drinks and snacks (including beer and vodka) from the privately operated kiosks located on the main train platform.
For a better range of food and drink we suggest that you head out onto the main road going towards Long Son Pagoda. If you do have time to wait for a train we recommend visiting Long Son Pagoda, which is free to enter and has a fantastic vegetarian restaurant near to the entrance to the temple. From Nha Trang Railway Station it takes around 7 minutes to walk to Long Son Pagoda.
There are always lots of taxis waiting outside Nha Trang Railway Station whenever a train arrives if you need some help transporting your luggage to your hotel. Before you consider taking a taxi check where your hotel is in relation to the railway station as much of the accommodation in Nha Trang is within easy walking distance of the station, just remember to make sure you have access to a map.
