Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Vinh Long.


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 10,000 VND xe om motorbike ride from downtown. If you can’t be bothered to head to the bus station, just have your hotel call the bus company to pick you up.

Five companies run dedicated bus services to Vinh Long from Ho Chi Minh City. The trip should take anywhere from two to two and a half hours depending on the bus company and should cost 100,000-110,000VND. The buses leave every hour. Mai Linh and Phuong Tran takes about 20 minutes longer as they transfer all passengers to Vinh Long to a larger bus. They will drop you off at their offices at the new bus station but will transfer you to a smaller shuttle bus and take you to your final destination in town. The other three run smaller shuttle buses which will directly drop you off anywhere in town.

Vinh Long is an easily walkable city but if you need some two-wheeled transport, you can rent bicycles at Van Tram for 60,000 VND a day and motorbikes for 100,000 VND a day at Hotel An Hong and at Phuong Hoang for 200,000 VND.
