Hi,

Day 1: HCMC

Day 2: Dalat

Day 3: Dalat

Day 4: Mui Ne

Day 5: HCMC and flight out.

You can travel by local bus between these destinations and can use train from Phan Thiet to HCMC.

Enjoy.

Either Saigon - Mui Ne - Dalat - Saigon or Saigon - Dalat - Mui Ne - Saigon. It's very easy now by the tour bus and good roads.

It depends upon your interests. If you want to be constantly on the go, spending two days in Dalat and one in Phan Thiet (Mui Ne is a ward of Phan Thiet, but most of the resorts and hotels are in Ham Tien ward, not Mui Ne ward.) seems reasonable. However, if you want to spend at least one day just relaxing, I would make it one day in Dalat and two in Phan Thiet. Also, be aware that the Mui Ne area of phan Thiet gets the least amount of rain of any other area in Vietnam, however, in September, it rains for hours almost every day in both Saigon and Dalat, but here in Phan Thiet, we haven't had any rain for about three weeks. That doesn't mean it won't rain when you are here, however.

oh wow, I didn't know about this. Does it mean we have to bring umbrella too?

do you guys think that taking private tour will be better than using public transportation?

since I read so much articles talking about scams.

We are group of girls, so we have to be careful in every thing we do there.

a tour agency offer us the private transportation from hcmc to mui ne 95 USD (one way) for 16 seaters

and the mui ne half day tour 67 USD for 2 jeeps.

then dalat for 165 usd/group for full day tour.

do you guys think those prices are worth it?

All except the Dalat full day tour sound like good prices, especially the 16 seater from HCMC to Dalat. The Dalat day tour is high, but I guess you're paying per person for the tour and per car for the other trips.

Not if it starts in Mui Ne and returns to Mui Ne. You didn't specify that before, so my comment that it was too high related to a full day Dalat tour for people staying in a Dalat hotel.

well, actually we won't go back to mui ne after the dalat tour.

The detail that I sent was just their offer. We will stop in dalat because we will go back to hcmc once we finish our tour in dalat.

So should I bargain since we will not go back to mui ne?

No, it's probably the best deal you'll get. The coach will have to return to Mui Ne/Phan Thiet whether you're on it or not.
