You should get to MY DINH BUS STATION at 09:30 AM and look for a local bus (Thuong Nga company) to CHO DON TOWN. This can be found at gate no.33. This is the only one that will take you directly to CHO DON via THAI NGUYEN CITY, # 29B11637, leaving at 10:00 AM.

NOTE: There will be many cars or local buses at the bus station saying 'Ba Be' and they will try to persuade you to use their transport.  However, they will not take you to all the way to Ba Be National Park but only to Cho Ra town which is 20 km short of the park and then you'll have to hire a motorbike to the park or pay a substantial extra bus fare.
The bus that will take you all the way to Ba Be National Park is a white one THUONG NGA #20k8496. It departs at about 08:20 AM. This bus should take you to Cho Don Town where you will transfer another bus before you are let off at Nam Cuong Market, about 2km from Ba Be Tourism Centre.
