Ben Tre

Getting there and away


Just by the gas station on the main road into town is a bus stand with regular buses headed north to the river crossing with My Tho. If you're heading further afield, you can eiter head out to the Ben Tre bus station (around 1.5km out of town) or get a bus to My Tho for onward travel. Buses leave from Ben Tre bus station for most Delta towns, but most leave early in the morning. You cannot head further south from Ben Tre by public transport -- you will need to backtrack across the Tien Giang River to My Tho. Note also your destination -- if you're going to Vinh Long for example, any bus to Can Tho or Ca Mau (amongst others) will either take you to the town or, at worst, drop you on the bypass road.
