HCMC to Nha Trang by Train on December 31?

Posted by adz717 on 23/9/2013 at 18:11

If I arrive in HCMC on December 28, will I easily be able to book a train to go to Nha Trang on December 31? Does the trail leave in the morning and get to Nha Trang in the afternoon?

New years isn't a huge local celebration. It is however a busy time with travellers. I would think you could book a train ticket easy enough but if you are picky on what train you want to be on and what kind of seat/berth then you would want to book as soon as possible. There are sites you can book train online if you are worried about it, will just cost a few a little more.

There are multiple trains that leave throughout the day so pick what works best for you.

Seat61.com/vietnam has good info on trains and vietnam-railway.com will allow you to purchase online although as mentioned costs more then if you buy them at the station.

The Golden Train is the first class service - cleaner/more comfortable than the state train (you should book ahead with a travel agent in VN)
