Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Tuy Hoa.
Tuy Hoa train station is at 146 Le Trung Kien Street, at the western edge of the city (close to Nguyen Tat Thanh Street and 400 metres south of the bus station). It’s a regular stop on the Reunification Express, with regular daily departures heading south to HCMC and north to Hanoi. The train is straightforward and far less puzzling than Tuy Hoa’s buses.
The bus situation in Tuy Hoa is confusing as there is more than one station. There is the main Tuy Hoa station as well as other stations belonging to individual bus companies.
All north-south buses going along Highway 1A can drop off at Tuy Hoa — more specifically, they will drop en route along the highway which lies five kilometres west of the city. Buses (if they’re nice) will stop at a major intersection where a few xe om hang out. If leaving from Tuy Hoa, there's two side-by-side bus terminals to choose from at the corner of Nguyen Tat Thanh and Tran Phu Streets. The one run by Thuan Thao Tourist offers the most departures. Bold travellers can also stand on Highway 1A and flag down a passing bus.
