Getting from Binh Thuan to Mui Ne

We are going to be getting the sleeper train down from Da Nang, which arrives at 02.15 (or around that time). Does anyone know if there are taxi's around the train station at that time which will take us to our hotel in Mui Ne. I will contact the hotel if necessary for a car (although I don't know if they would do one at that time) but don't really want to if I can help it as I know the trains are notorious for running late. Thanks in advance

Download both the Vinasun and Mai Linh taxi apps to your smart phone that way even if there is no taxis at that hour you can then book one using the app. But as their livelyhood is from collecting passengers from the trains then its fairly likely there will be a taxi waiting outside the station.

I think Grab apps is also useful in this situation.

Taxis rely on the traffic from the train so you will be ok. Are you sure you will be staying at Mui Ne ? The main centre for hotels/Resorts etc is Ham Tien some 10 kms further away. Be sure so you don't get into fare conflict with the driver, so have the name of the resort written down with the address.

Thank you for your help. I have downloaded the apps and double checked the address which is 98A Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Mui Ne so I am hopeful that thing will go okay now.

Shades is in Ham Tien getting towards the boundary with Mui Ne so your taxi will take you through Mui Ne .

We are arriving in HCMC airport (SGN) around 9:30 am. Will we have enough time to get from the airport to the train station and catch the 11:50 train to Binh Thuan? Appreciate your help!

I would say no.

If using VOA then definitely no for sure. Using E-visa or embassy Visa doubt it but there's a slim chance. You still need to get through traffic to the train station.

Miracles do happen.

As the train ticket is not expensive I would still book the train and organise a prearranged airport pick up with somebody like "Hanoi transfer services" yes they do cover Saigon too. That way you're stacking the odds in your favour. But if you miss the train your alternative is private car to Mui Me.

This depends on clearance time as DP says. Ordinarily you would be ok but you are in the hands of the traffic on the day.
