Vinh Long

Getting there and away


Vinh Long has two bus stations, the old bus station is in the centre of town but buses from there run only to Can Tho and very occasionally to Ho Chi Minh City. For transport to other Delta towns and more frequent buses to Saigon and Can Tho, you're better off to head out to the new bus station a 10,000D xe om motorbike ride from downtown. If you arrive at Vinh Long on a through bus to another destination you may be dropped on the bypass road from where it's a 6,000D xe om ride into town.

Updates from Travelfish readers

  • In March this year I got a minibus, organised through Mekong travel, and was picked up there, close to the market on the river, and went back to Ho Chi Minh City so fast, it took less than two hours and dropped us in Tran Phu St in Cholon. I'm pretty sure they went every hour. Getting down to the Mekong had been so slow, but this bus went a different way, using new expressways.
