Bus from Hue

1. The DMZ bus is priced at 150,000vnd, leaves the DMZ bar at 14:00, arrives in Phong Nha at 18:30 (in time for our beer happy hour!). You can buy tickets from the DMZ bar on the corner of Le Loi St & Pham Ngu Lao St. Please note that this does NOT stop anywhere in the DMZ, it is a direct bus.

2. Hung Thanh bus departs from 49 Chu Van An at 16:30 and arrives 100 metres from Easy Tiger at around 22:00. This will drop you off at our door and is the best evening bus to take, but please note that you miss our happy hours and live music, and the bus can sometimes get in late. Great if you want to spend most of the day in Hue before heading to Phong Nha.

3. The Tan Nhat bus departs from the Why Not? Bar at 06:30/07:00 and will drop you off in Phong Nha at around 12:00. This is a bus that does a day tour to Phong Nha but also takes passengers. (You will stop at a ruined church along the way. If you walk behind the big building with the statue of the virgin Mary, and go through the gate, there are noodle shops if you didn’t have breakfast, but be quick as you only stop for 20 minutes!). This is a great bus if you want to arrive in time to see Phong Nha cave in the afternoon, or to make use of our free bicycles and explore the area for a few hours.

4. The Local Bus.  The “Phuc Vu” (don’t ask us to pronounce that) bus departs Hue at 11:30AM from Hue’s Northern Bus Station. You pay the driver 90,000-150,000VND depending what mood he is in, and tell him “Phong Nha”. This is a local bus and we at Easy Tiger have no control over it. It is cheap and fast (when it goes on time and doesn’t break down). It takes about 4-5 hours. Registration is 73B-00366. This bus returns Phong Nha to Hue at 05h00 each day.
