How to get to and from Vinh Long

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

Book a flight, train, bus, taxi or ferry in Vietnam with Baolau


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 occasionally to Ho Chi Minh City and a hodge podge of other regional destinations—aim for a morning departure. Sample fares include:

Can Tho: 23,000 dong
Ho Chi Minh City: 106,000 dong
Sa Dec: 15,000 dong

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 20,000 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 and take you out there. Sample fares include:

Ho Chi Minh City: 80,000–110,000 dong
Tra Vinh: 37,000 dong
Vung Tau: 105,000 dong
