1.Transfer Danang to Hoi An by yellow bus
Bus in Danang, the local people call “xe buyt” or “Xe Đò”, you can ask the local “Xe đò đi Hội An/ Da Nang ở đâu?” It means “where to catch a bus to Hoi An/ Da Nang?” They will guide you to the bus stop. Bus transfer between Da Nang and Hoi An cost 30.000 VND ~ 1.5 USD (rate: 1 USD = 22.500 in 2017). Time transfer is about 70 – 80 mins/ way

- Route Hoi An to Danang: Hoi An Bus Station – Le Van Hien – Ngu Hanh Son (near Marble Mountain) – Bach Dang – Phan Dinh Phung – Yen Bai – Le Duan – Dien Bien Phu – Ton Duc Thang – Da Nang bus station.

2. Transfer Danang to Hoi An by motorbike
Motorbike is the most popular choice for young people when traveling in Da Nang. You also rent a scooter to go to Hoi An and explore all tourist sites en route such as My Khe Beach, Marble Mountain, Silk village, Tra Que village. If you don’t know the route, you also move on the same road with the yellow bus.
You can choose 2 options for this way:
- If you are an experienced biker and have an international license who travels by motorbike, you consider rent a scooter and ride by yourself, you can book online or book with the local travel agent. It’s cost around 100.000 vnd/ Scooter, 120.000 vnd/ manual motorbike. If you drive long-distance or wanna explore the Ho Chi Minh trail, you must rent a tour leader, so he can help you to find good places to relax, find the gas station, good road to drive, furthermore, he will help when you have an accident en route.
- If you can’t ride, you can choose “xe ôm”, it’s mean when you sit behind the rider, you have to hug the rider to safe. 🙂 “Xe” in Vietnamese means vehicle, here is a motorbike, “Ôm” means hug. If you chose this way to transfer between Da Nang and Hoi An, you have to pay 150.000 – 200.000 vnd. Almost all of Xe Ôm services, can not speak English or a little bit, you must deal with them before going somewhere. We also suggest book with a travel agent and request travel insurance, a good helmet for the worst case that can happen – the accident.
Moving by motorbike is a good idea on sunny. In Vietnam, it’s rain season from Oct to Dec, so we recommend choosing a transfer by car or bus to keep safe and keep dry.
Motorcycling is the best way to explore Viet Nam, but we certainly do not want to bad end, where the bodies of drunken boys and the wrecks of their scooter clog the roads. You must have an International license, which shows that you are qualified to operate a motorcycle in your homeland, and proper travel insurance, which guarantees that any damage the motorcycle does to other vehicles will be paid for and if necessary, the remains of the rider will be repatriated.
3. Taxi from Danang to Hoi An
Taxi from Danang to Hoi An is the popular choice because of convenient and quick, it takes about 45 mins depending on the traffic conditions. This maybe is the choice of the highest cost. You have to deal with a taxi driver or you chose a good taxi company. Danang airport to Hoi An taxi fare is about 300.000 – 400.000 vnd/ way or 500.000/ round-trip.
