Many overseas visitors reach Phan Thiet via "Open Tour" buses that run between Ho Chi Minh City and Phan Thiet or Nha Trang. Most depart from HCMC between 7:30 and 9:00 AM or PM (7 AM for Sinh cafe in an air-conditioned bus, arriving at Ham Tien at about 12:30PM, same for the night schedule). In the opposite direction, buses typically depart from Ham Tien around 2:00 PM or AM and arrive in HCMC at 7:00 PM or AM~ five hours at night or in the morning. Joe's Cafe is a good place to catch an outgoing night bus as it offers full service until late at night. Outside HCMC, the coach will stop at a petrol station with a pretty large shop and stalls selling snacks, drinks and fruit.
A train runs daily from HCMC to Phan Thiet, departing at 6:50AM and arriving at around 10:30AM. The return trip leaves Phan Thiet at 1:10PM. The cost is around USD$8 per person each way for the air-conditioned chair car. The train station in HCMC (Saigon Railway Station) is in District 3, about 3 km from the center. The railway station in Phan Thiet is about five km (150,000VND taxi ride) from the beginning of the Ham Tien resort strip, and taxis are abundant to take you there. Keep in mind that a ride all the way to Mui Ne costs up to +400,000VND from the train station. There is a mid-sized red-color local bus #9 that waits at the train station every day to take tourists into Phu Hai, Ham Tien and Mui Ne wards. The cost is currently (2017) 35,000VND per person. Worth checking is the 2nd morning train from Ga Saigon which only runs occasionally but at the better time of 7.30am. It may become a regular on the timetable (2018). Also note that Phan Thiet is not on the Hanoi/ HCMC line so you cannot get off in Phan Thiet from Hanoi. You can however get off at Binh Thuan Station and take a taxi to Mui Ne ($40) The train offers a great view of the countryside and avoids the endless honking of horns and seemingly erratic driving. The dining car sells food and beverages, including hot soup, and is a comfortable 'hang out'.
