Yes it is but only through agents, not the railway itself. They do charge more. If you have your HCMC accommodation already booked (advisable) ask your hotel to pick up your tickets from the Vietnam Railway Office in Pham Ngu Lao Street.

Weve just done that trip and booked our tickets the day before via our HCM hotel no problem. The tickets themselves are only 176, 000 dong which s about a fiver and the hotel charged us about 1.50 to collect them for us.

It's a nice journey.

Yes. I paid $19 for a two way trip using Custom Vietnam Travel. Your hotel will be happy to help too. I didn't mind paying a bit to make sure I had a seat I wanted on a train I wanted (and the train was pretty full when I went). Do note that you still have to pay for a taxi or transfer to Mui Ne. The distance from Phan Thiet is less than from Binh Thuan. Use www.Seat61.com to choose your train and time.

There are two daily trains from Ho Chi Minh City to Phan Thiet and vice versa. The first class carriages on the train are called "Golden Train" and also be only one of comfort, cleanness and spacious. The seats are reminiscent of 1950's airline seats; comfortable but not luxurious. Rate is 15US$/way, included ticket delivery.

The other train belonging to Vietnam Railway, it is popular for local people, not really comfortable enough. Rate is from 6US$ to 10US$/way at Saigon Railway Station.

Train timetable:

Golden train: SPT2 & SPT1

From Saigon to Phan Thiet: 06:50 – 10:30

From Phan Thiet to Saigon: 14:05 – 18:40

Vietnam Railway train: PT4 & PT3

From Saigon to Phan Thiet: 17:05 – 21:30

From Phan Thiet to Saigon: 22:05 – 03:25

Saigon Station: No 1, Nguyen Thong Street, Dist 3, Ho Chi Minh City.

Phan Thiet Station: H59, Le Hong Phong Street, Phan Thiet City.

Muong Man Station: Ham Thuan Nam, Binh Thuan province.
