Availability of train/bus from Thap Cham to Nha Trang?

Posted by cloud on 23/9/2010 at 07:00

I am setting up a plan for my travel during the coming October and have difficulty for the segment from Thap Cham to Nha Trang .

If I can move the segment between 9:00~14:00,i.e., leaving Thap Cham after 9:00 and arriving at Nha Trang before 14:00, it’s the best.

I searched the train time in the internet and found several time tables of different times. One of them shows that SE8 departs Thap Cham at 11:02 and arrives at Nha Trang at 12:33 but I wonder whether the table is the current one or not. (SE8 times in other tables, ?-12:48, 22:39-0:42, 2:51-4:18)

I want to know the current availability. Would anybody tell me whether there is a currently available train or bus during the time 9:00~14:00?

Pink, thanks for the reply. As I put in this thread and also in another thread entitled “Vietnam train time table, which one is correct?” I am confused about the train times. Did you get the times from the web site http://www.vr.com.vn or directly from a train station? In the web site, I found there are two different kinds of tables. One is a table for the entire line and the other is a table as a line segment basis. It seems to me that the times in the tables are not identical. For example, more detailed comparison in the thread mentioned at the head, the times in the tables for the departure time at Sai Gon of SE 6 are 12:20 and 13:05, also for SE8, 15:45 and 05:30. Which one is the currently correct time table or what is the correct way to read the time tables ( I do not know Vietnamese at all)? It is indicated that you posted your writing in Vietnam. Can you check the correct departure time of SE 8 from Sai Gon or Thap Cham? If you can, that will be a big help to me.
