Getting there & away
There are buses leaving HCMC from Mien Tay bus station (about 65, 000d, five hours). Express minibuses make the same trip in about the same time.
The main bus station in Can Tho is about a kilometre north of town at the intersection of Ð Nguyen Trai and Ð Tran Phu. There is another short-haul bus depot about 300m south of the intersection of Ð 30 Thang 4 and Ð Mau Than, which is good for getting to Soc Trang and the Phung Hiep floating market.
Whether you travel by car or motorbike, the ride from HCMC to Can Tho along Hwy 1 takes about four hours. There is one ferry crossing at Binh Minh (in Can Tho). The Can Tho ferry runs from 4am to 2am.
To get from ÐL Hoa Binh in Can Tho to the ferry crossing, go along Ð Nguyen Trai to the main bus station and turn right onto Ð Tran Phu.
