More on Ben Tre


Ben Tre’s primary bus station is about 4 kilometres out of town, to the north on QL 60, though larger bus companies like Futabus have offices scattered around and generally closer to town. While you can get a bus to most destinations from the main bus station, check with your guesthouse and they may recommend a closer private company which may make more sense from a convenience point of view.

Getting around

Ben Tre town is small enough that it is a comfortable town just to walk around in, but if you are out in one of the homestays, then you’ll be wanting a bicycle or motorbike, both of which are generally available for hire (or in the case of bicycles, sometimes for free) from most homestays.
