About Ha Tien

Ha Tien is a lesser visited town with a population of over 80,000 permanent residents. The town is near some great beaches and scenery, and also has a fairly good range of hotels and places to eat, but most foreign visitors who go there are passing through on their way somewhere else:

  • Travel to Cambodia: The Ha Tien border crossing to Cambodia is just over 6 km to the north of Ha Tien town centre. From the border it’s 30 km to Kep beach and 45 km to Kampot town. There are plenty of motorbike taxis which will take you to the border and plenty that will take you to Kep or Kampot. Expect to pay $10 to $15 to complete the journey to Kampot, although the exact price depends on your negotiating skills
  • Travel to Phu Quoc Island: There are two types of ferry from Ha Tien to Phu Quoc. The fast ferry services take around 1 hour 15 minutes to complete the journey, and the much cheaper car ferry services take around 2 hours 30 minutes. Booking advance is recommended for the fast ferries. For the car ferry you simply turn up and buy a ticket before you leave.
