Train times & tickets – Sai Gon to Nha Trang

Nha Trang is a lively seaside town 7 to 10 hours away from Sai Gon by train, depending upon which train service you use. This is popular destination in the summer months, particularly February through to April when there is the least rainfall, and if you want to travel in one of the 1st Class or VIP Sleeper compartments then we recommend that you book well in advance. If you plan to travel in the rainy season, from middle of September to middle of December, then you are less likely to need to book a ticket in advance as few holiday makers visit Nha Trang at this time of year.

About Nha Trang

Nha Trang is Vietnam’s most popular beach resort town which can become very busy in the summer months with Vietnamese people coming to the city in large numbers on vacation. The city beach itself is not that great in comparison to other lesser areas in South East Asia, however, there are other beaches and diving spots nearby that are definitely worth visiting.

Nha Trang town was little more than a collection of smaller fishing villages until French colonial rule and its status as a popular resort has grown since then. Aside from the beaches there are a number of attractions for foreign tourists, most popular of which are:

  • National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam: An aquarium open to the public featuring an interesting range of sea life including from sharks to sea horses and pretty much everything in between.
  • Po Nagar Cham Towers: A Buddhist religious site featuring 4 brick towers constructed around 1,000 years ago.
  • Thanh Dien Khanh Fortress: European style fortress built in 1793.
  • Ba Ho waterfalls: A series of waterfalls located around 20 km North of Nha Trang City.
  • Live Music: In the evenings a number of bars in the City have live music by foreign performers. The most popular, but not necessarily the best, venues are the Guava Bar and the Red Apple Club.
  • Monkey Island: As the name suggest, an island with lots of monkeys, which is a ferry ride away from Nha Trang City.
