How to Get to Hoi An from Da Nang

da-nang-to-hoi-an-cover

While traveling in Central Vietnam, the burning question among tourists is: “How to get to Hoi An from Da Nang?” Hoi An is a beautiful ancient town that’s in Vietnam’s top 10 places to visit, especially while in Da Nang because they’re only 30 kilometers apart. However, as Hoi An is only a small town, there isn’t yet an airport or train station. Here we’ll show you the best options in reaching the famous cultural site.

How To Get To Hoi An From Da Nang - 4 Types Of Transportation

Motorbike:

Let’s start with the best option - motorbike! Many refrain from this choice because riding a motorbike in Vietnam needs pure guts and steel to wield through the complicated traffic, and the laws are different. However, for those who dare, this is the fastest option - takes only 45 minutes to ride to Hoi An - and also the most interesting route since you can stop midway for sightseeing and enjoy traveling like a local.

The route to Hoi An from Da Nang is not crowded and spacious.

There are many motorbike rental places, and they usually charge from VND 100,000 to VND 180,000/bike per day, excluding gas. The price depends on the type of motorbike you choose - manual or automatic transmission. The latter is the most popular choice since it’s easier to use, but the manual motorbike is preferred for riding on mountain/hill.

Always wear helmets for your safety.

Taxi:

In Da Nang, ride-hailing app isn’t as widespread as in Ho Chi Minh City so your next option is the taxi. You can grab one easily without any prior arrangements, and it’ll take you around 45 minutes and VND 300,000 to VND 400,000 to get to Hoi An. However, beware of some common taxi scams and make sure your driver knows where you’re heading to.

Recommend taxi brands:

Vinasun: +84 511 368 6868
Mai Linh: +84 511 352 5252
Song Han: +84 511 372 7272

Both Vinasun and Mai Linh has their ride-hailing apps available on App Store.

Another interesting choice is a new service, which was launched at the Da Nang Airport, called Dichungtaxi. You can choose your destination, and whether to share (shared taxi) or go private, then your driver will pick you up.

Bus:

If you don’t mind spending 1.5 hours on the bus then this is an economical way to get to Hoi An. Catch bus number 1 (the yellow bus) and pay VND 30,000 on the bus. The bus starts running at 5.30 AM and ends at 6 PM. There’s one every 20 minutes. Bus moves in and out of bus stop quickly so run as fast as you can.

The cost can be between VND 300,000 to VND 700,000 depending on the number of car seats. Most hotels support car arrangement so you can inquire them beforehand.
