HCM then following the coast

Hi

going back to Vietnam

a few days in HCM then we want to follow the coast

last time we trained to Nha Trang [horrific, we should have flown, NT was brilliant]

Should we head to the closest, Vung Tau? Then keep working our way around?

how to do this, hire a driver?

or are we better off flying to the main beaches? obviously don't want to spend half the day travelling

wont go too far north this trip

thoughts appreciated

Lot depends on how many days you have and what time of the year?

Can take the ferry over to Vung Tau and then make your way up the coast by car or day bus stopping along the way at Mui ne area, Phan Rang, Cam Ranh, NT, Quy Nhon. That's 3 weeks. Fly back to HCMC from QN or NT.

Do a private transfer if your budget is ok.

Car or ferry. New road but think the ferry may be quicker.

==============================================

You wont be able to fly anywhere south of Nha Trang. It is a nice road trip up the coastal road to Mui Ne and Nha Trang. Its a 4 hour trip from Vung Tau to Mui Ne taking it easy and about the same from Mui Ne to Nha Trang.

the ferry sounds like the way to go, then car hop up the coast

may fly somewhere from Nha Trang once we reach there

From Nha Trang you can head inland to Da Lat by bus or car, its about 140klms I think. Da Lat also has an airport that can take you to many destinations.
