Most tourists wouldn’t even consider taking a public bus when visiting Saigon, but there are lots of reasons why you should make it an option. As well as the comfortable 152 bus to Ho Chi Minh airport, there’s also a dedicated Airport Shuttle bus through to Ben Thanh bus station near the market. The 152 costs between 30 cents and a dollar, depending on the amount of luggage you have. And the new airport shuttle costs 20 000 VND (< $1), regardless of how much you have. That’s much, much cheaper than the already inexpensive taxi option.
The cheapest way is to take public city Bus # 152 parking in a lane few steps away on the right side from the Arrival’s entrance.
It takes you downtown to the Bus Station on the opposite side of the traffic round about from Ben Thanh market, at a cost of 5000 dong per person and per piece of big luggage. It runs every 20 minutes from 6 am until 6 pm.
Or you can chose the new modern bus to City Center/ Pham Ngu Lao area, Bus 109 in yellow just operate from March 2016. It run through the main street of city center and final stop at Pham Ngu Lao street. They run every 15-20 minutes between 5:30 am and 1:30 am, cost for one-way trip is 20,000 dong and the entire journey takes approximately 45 minutes.
