The cars and vans are for picking up from Cam Ranh airport to Nha Trang City.

Travel by a taxi

Most of the airports in Vietnam have taxi services to serve you to travel to your resorts. In Cam Ranh Air Station, the taxi parking is near the normal car parking in front of the exit gate. However, it seems to avoid airport parking fees, so we saw many taxis waiting outside the gate, making it a little further.

Despite that, a few drivers will invite you to use taxi services when you move out of the exit gate.

Taxi in Cam Ranh includes:

  • Mai Linh Taxi: 0258 38 38 38 38
  • VinaSun Taxi: 0258 327 27 27
  • Taxi Quoc Te: 0258 352 52 52.
  • Sun Taxi: 0258 389 89 89.
  • Taxi Asia (Yellow Taxi): 0258 35 35 35 35

Please note that not all time is sure that an English-speaking person is available to answer your phone with these numbers!

Pros when using a taxi:

  • No need to book in advance.
  • It’s convenient for a group of 4 guests or below.

Cons when moving with a taxi:

  • Price is not fixed, depending on the distance to drive.
  • It is not good for a group of 5 people and over because of the small cars.
  • The smell in a few taxis can be not nice.
  • If it is unluckily to meet a scam taxi, that can ruin your journey.

  • The driver welcomes you with your name to make it easy to recognize your driver.
  • Support professionally from the tour operator, who often works with international guests.
  • It is easy to travel with any size of your group when choosing a car, van, or bus.

Cons when booking a private car

  • You need to book a transfer in advance to have a car or van.

Facilities in this airport

There are two sections in this airport that you need to pay attention to, including the International Terminal and Domestic Terminal. However, they are not far away from each other. If you come to the wrong terminal, you only need to walk to the correct one in a few minutes.

Based on these terminals, you can find different services here.

At the domestic terminal, the service is poor, for example, food, drink, and banking.

You do not wish to find good food in this area. So, the best advice the Vietnamdrive team can give to you is to prepare the breakfast box when you come to this airport in the early morning from Nha Trang City or wait until transferring to the city center from the airport to find your food.

At the international terminal, the ground service is better than at the domestic terminal. You can find food for tasting at the second-floor shops, such as Burger King, Lucky Cafe, and Two Tigers. But for us, it is still not great.

For other services, the banking service for exchanging money is at the exit gate on the first floor, while the shopping area and duty-free section are almost on the second floor.

In short, you do not have too high an expectation to use ground services in Cam Ranh airport in both domestic and international terminals.

Save your time in this airport to do it in other better shopping centers in Nha Trang City or local markets such as Dam Market!

Customs and immigration in Cam Ranh

Luckily, customs and immigration at Cam Ranh Airport are easy because there are not many international flights coming here. So, it seems quick and easy to do, which can become a plus mark in this airfield.
