A new bus route connecting Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the coastal tourist city of Vung Tau will be introduced in late January, according to the city’s Department of Transport.

The bus will run from 12 midnight to 11.30 pm. Travel time on the 105-km route is estimated at around two and a half hours, with a frequency ranging from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the peak hours. Tickets will cost around VND160,000 ($7) and the bus will travel along the Ho Chi Minh City - Long Thanh - Dau Giay route.

It will have wi-fi and screens on the back of seats for entertainment.

The bus also applies a similar policy to airlines in regard to check-in, travel changes, and refunds.

There are now five shuttle bus routes from Tan Son Nhat to inter-provincial bus stations in the city. The Department of Transport has said it also wishes to open routes to nearby provinces such as Binh Duong and Dong Nai.

With a cool and dry temperature all year round and a coastline of over 305 km, Ba Ria Vung Tau province is one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam and home to clear water and white sandy beaches such as Ho Coc, Bai Sau, Dam Trau, and Bai Dua, together with deluxe seaside resorts.

As a significant port, particularly during French rule, Ba Ria Vung Tau also features cultural, revolutionary, and historic relics such as White Palace, built by the French from 1898 to 1916 as a summer retreat for the French Governor General, beautiful pagodas, and a statue of Jesus on top of Nui Nho Mountain.
