    Hi everybody, does anyone know how often the airport bus runs from the bus station to the airport?

    I have to be at the airport at 9 a.m. tomo. and forgot to check...stupid me.
    Or, even better, does anybody have the bus schedule?

    Thanks for yr answers.

    I've found this posting, hope it helps you!

    For someone who has few valuables the bus is a risk from thieves and pickpockets. For an arriving passenger the risk is higher.

    A taxi will cost around USD$6. About a 20-minute run. Do not ask a taxi driver for a hotel name, they only know the names of hotels who bribe them.

    NOTE: When you leave the International terminal turn RIGHT along to the end of the building where you will find a covered walkway (and a trolley park).

    Grab a trolley and go to the domestic terminal.

    To your LEFT, after arriving at the Domestic terminal, you will see a big parking lot which is where you will find a selection of taxies.

    DO NOT USE THE TAXIS IMMEDIATELY OUTSIDE THE TERMINALS (usually white) AS THEY ARE GOVERNMENT OWNED AND HAVE THE HIGHEST RATES.

    Tan Son Nhat Airport is 7 kilometres northwest of downtown HCMC (Q1).

    Bus Route 152 - TSN Airport Ben Thanh Market Station

    The air-conditioned Route 152 (Tel: (08) 3829-8992)(www.satranco.com.vn) runs from the airport to Ben Thanh Market in the city centre daily. Travel time is 60-90 minutes | EXACT Fare (cash) VND3,000

    Buses leave the airport approximately every 15 minutes, stopping briefly at both the internal lal and domestic terminals before heading downtown/Q1. First bus: 05.30H | Last Bus: TBA

    The official route is: Tan Son Nhat Airport > Trouong Son > Phan Dihn Giot > Doung Nguyen Van Troi > Doung Nam Ky Khoi Nghia > Doung Pasteur > Nguyen Thi Minh Khai > Dai Lo Nguyen Thai Hoc sequentially. Note: The drivers act independently and often self-re-route, without authorisation, which can alarm both passengers and other drivers alike.

    Ben Thanh Bus Station us about 15-20 minute walk, depending on hotel location. Late at night the drivers might re-route for $2-3 along Pham Ngu Lau Street.
