Your best option would probably be for your hotel to arrange coach tickets. Make sure you take a coach that arrives in Nha Trang before dark, as you do not want to be on the roads in Vietnam in a bus after dark, and certainly not on a mountain road. It's a beautiful trip, especially the first half.

Brett,

For the price, I would hire a private vehicle for the trip. We did this last month with our three children and I am so glad we did so. It was a long drive and left my knuckles white at times. I just couldn't imagine doing this journey on a bus.

We left just after 0800 hours and arrived in Nha Trang around lunch time. Beautiful drive but a wee bit scary around the mountain pass.

I agree with Troy, private car is the most suitable one for family since you can depart and stop at any time you want. It costs around 120$.

I think that 120 for a 3 hour trip is way overpriced, even if the vehicle has to return empty. The wages for a driver is not more than 200/month in that area.

Jim,

A local company's rate is 180K VND (around $85).

My guesstimate for visitor is around $100; negotiable, of course.

Cheers,

From Nha Trang to Dat Lat is about 145km, you can take a bus( the Sinh tourist, Phuong Trang or Hanh Cafe...) The rate is around 140.000VND ~ 7$/person. If you take a taxi, the rate is about 1.800.000vnd~90$. I think the best way is rent a private car, you can ask the reception. It have good rate.
