Vietnam Airlines offers daily service to Hanoi, Saigon and Danang. The two-room airport is actually in Cam Ranh about 40 KM (25 miles) from town. The ride takes about 45 minutes. It will set you back about $15 for a taxi. Some hotels offer complimentary airport transfers for their guests, so inquire when booking your room. The Vietnam Airlines ticketing office is downtown at 91 Nguyen Thien Thuat.
The train station is at 17 Thai Nguyen Street. A taxi ride downtown is about US$1. Train tickets in Nha Trang must be purchased one day in advance for all destinations except Hanoi and Saigon. In addition to three daily Reunification Express trains in each direction, there are local trains to Saigon and Hue. Ticket office hours are limited.
Nha Trang is a full day's drive from Saigon, Danang and Dalat. It is a popular stop on any north-south itinerary. If you are going by motorcycle, it's best to start in Saigon, where you are more likely to find a decent bike. A car and driver can be hired in any of the above cities.
Remember, friends don't let friends take buses in Vietnam! While useful as mile markers when they're broken down along the highway, buses are not a good form of transportation here. A better alternative is minibus. Numerous companies offer daily service between Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City, Danang and Dalat.
