    I caught the OPEN BUS from my hotel in Hue. They have a luggage department underneath the bus, so you don't have to worry if you have a large case. They drop you off at a hotel at Hoi An, then you have to find you own way to yours. Cheap travel, good scenery.

    Travel time is approx. 5 hr with a 40 min stop at Marble Mountain.

    Price in 2013...Between 120,000 - 150,000 dong approx. $6 US upwards

    Taking a taxi in Hoi An.

    by cachaseiro Written Mar 11, 2012
    Taxis in Hoi An.

    Hoi An is one of the easier towns in Vietnam when it comes to taking a taxi ride.
    The taxis have meters and i have never had any problems getting the driver to turn the meter on.
    Most of the drivers i have been with have been uniformed drivers who were very correct and the rides are very cheap by european standards.
    You rough pay 1 US dollar per 1,5 kilometers in Hoi An.
    The taxis do not drive that much around and prey on people, but instead they tend to be located at official taxi stops waiting for clients.
    If you are in a hotel or a restaurant then you can get them to call one for you.
    The taxis are for sure a good alternative to the motorbike taxis which are often a bit seedy and not particulary safe to drive.

    The night bus

    by deeper_blue Written Feb 24, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Night buses aren't always what they appear when you purchase a ticket. Often overbooked, longer than told, sometimes prices overinflated. I was one of the lucky ones, but saw lots of tourists herded on board made to share seats or stand, I at least felt safe when I was on board, just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

    Rickshaw is commonly used as a local transportation in Hai An town area. Hoi An is a small town with ally streets and no cars, this mode of transportation is perfect to be used in Hoi An. The cost is really cheap...

    Not only it can transport people, but your suitcases too..

    Try it while you are in Hoi An. It is safe and fun...

    Vietnam Airlines...

    by Greggor58 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vietnam Airlines on the Tarmac,Da Nang,Vietnam.

    We used Vietnam Airlines a few times throughout my whirlwind four week tour of Vietnam...getting here we used them to fly from Nha Trang...the closest airport to get to Hoi An is located about a forty five minute drive away in Da Nang...we hired a taxi from the airport although the hotel we booked with in Hoi An offered us a rate of $ 15.00 USA to transfer us from the airport to the hotel.
    The HOTEL rate was cheaper than hiring a taxi so PLEASE if the hotel you book with offers you a comparable rate...ACCEPT it!

    In any event......

    This was to be the second flight we used within Vietnam with Vietnam Airlines...we ended up using them for another leg of our journey from Hue to Ha Noi...

    All time we used this airline the flights departed ON TIME...there were NO baggage issues...the SERVICE was POLITE and PROFESSIONAL...

    All of the flights we booked and flew with them cost about the same...plus or minus a few dollars....about $ 50.00 - $ 60.00 for each leg...

    Two flights we booked on line from home....the third flight we used a local agent in Hoi An...all transactions and processes were EASY and NO HASSLE!! Sometimes though the Web Site was a little slow...

    I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to RECOMMEND Vietnam Airlines for Domestic transit!!!

    Minibus from Danang Int'l Airport to Hoi An

    by kelnsha Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our mini-bus from Danang airport-Hoi An (USD3/pax)

    Almost every Hoi An hotel provides and charges land transfers from Danang International Airport to Hoi An town. A minibus will cost from USD2-3 per person depending on the number of people in a minibus.

    We stayed at Thanh Xuan Hotel in Hoi An. Initially, the agreed price was USD12 over the email but it became USD20 (about USD3 per person) because there were 7 of us instead of 4.

    Sinh Cafe Open Bus

    by Willettsworld Written May 8, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great, cheap and easy way of travelling the whole length of the country from north to south (or vice versa) is by taking the Sinh Cafe Open Bus. They have an office in each major town/city and offer a daily service between the main sightseeing points of Saigon, Dalat, Nha Trang, Hoi An, Hue and Hanoi on modern clean buses with plenty of leg room and (where applicable) sleeper buses. If you go to their office, they'll explain everything for you along with a timetable and costs (this is also found on their website below so you plan this before you arrive in Vietnam). The third leg of my trip involved travelling between Nha Trang to Hoi An on a sleeper bus, but don't expect to get much sleep as the roads are terrible! This trip cost me 180,000 VND and left Nha Trang at 7.30pm and arrived in Hoi An at about 6.30am. I then left Hoi An for Hue where we stopped off at one of the Marble Mountains ("water"), to the south of Da Nang. The trip, including the stop, took about 3.5 hours and cost 120,000 VND. They pick up and drop you off at their offices so it's probably best to find out where they are in each place before you arrive.

    I am writing this in the event you might have a need to use a RELIABLE agent while you're staying in Hoi An...

    I found and used a woman named Anh...that works for a company located at 06 Hoang Dieu Street...there is no company name on the building...just a large sign that identifies them as an agent for Vietnam Airlines and a Western Union Sign just above..

    I booked a few things through her...a flight to Ha Noi from Hue...a short train journey from Da Nang to Hue...and I arranged a car through her to transport us from our hotel in Hoi An to the train station in Da Nang...

    Her pricing was VERY fair...I certainly didn't feel gouged at all...and there were no hidden costs or surprises encountered...ALWAYS a good thing!!

    Her email address is below as well as the address...there are two telephone numbers available...

    I saw many drivers looking for business while I was WALKING around Hoi An...I just couldnt bring myself to take up any offer for the use of one...it looked like fun but its just not something I wanted to do...

    EVERYTHING including PRICE is negotiable so if you're open to the idea of being driven around in one....DO NOT accept the first price that's mentioned...NOTHING herein Hoi An is expensive especially by Western standards..

    YOU'll find one ANYWHERE in and around the Old Quarter of Hoi An...

    Fly Jetstar (Pacific) and save time!

    by JohanIsWeg Updated Jan 19, 2009

    Danang Airport

    Vietnam's road and rail transport is such that trips over moderate distances may take much longer than what many tourists would expect in their home countries. Travellers should also take note of the significant number of motor vehicle crashes on Vietnam's roads.

    In light of this, and bolstered by the value-for-money fares, air transport takes on added significance. There are two airlines that service Vietnam's domestic routes: Vietnam Airlines and Jetstar (which amalgamated with Pacific Airlines). During holiday periods, particularly Tet, it is wise to book ahead rather than take a chance on booking internal flights after arrival.

    Unfortunately, Hoi An does not have a domestic terminal, which requires a flight to Danang. Fortunately, Danang is within easy driving distance of Hoi An. We booked Jetstar (Pacific) over the Internet, which was a painless experience, printed out the e-ticket and we were set to lift off.

    Booking in at the airport was easy. From memory we had a 20kg baggage plus carry-on allowance. The flight itself was uneventful and safe. It took us slightly more than an hour to fly from south to central Vietnam. Some of the birds-eye scenery was amazing, particularly the patch-work agricultural lands in all its emerald green glory. Food is available for purchase, but we did not indulge.

    Brothers Open Tour Bus - Nha Trang to Hoi An

    by betska Written Aug 23, 2008

    View from my

    For the un-initiated, this is our take on the over-night, open bus system. This was our first, and last experience. Wouldn't do it again.
    We booked Nha Trang to Hoi An for the overnight trip. I can't remember the cost, probably around US$10. We used Brothers Bus Company.
    We left Nha Trang at 6pm. After storing our luggage underneath, we boarded the bus, had to take our shoes off & carry them on the bus, no problem. The lay-out of the bus is 3 rows - one on each side with windows, and a middle row. You have a little alcove whereby you are supposed to be able to lie down & sleep. Well this may be well & good for shorties (I was able to lie down, but I am only 5 foot tall). For taller people, you have to sort of, lie sideways and curl your legs up (difficult, because so narrow), or lay on your back with your legs bent up. I had a spot in the middle row, with a TV set right in front of my face. They were playing Bruce Lee movies but we asked them to turn it off. I had my seatbelt on the entire journey as I kept picturing my face going thru the TV screen if we were in an accident. By the time we did all the pick-ups, and left Nha Trang, the bus was full. Even the extra special (extra long) bed for the alternate driver was sold. He had to sling up a hammock over the rear door where the toilet was. And mentioning the toilet, we didn't realise when we left Nha Trang, but when someone needed it - guess what - the toilet didn't work. Shame for the Italian man at the back of the bus who brought like a case of beer to drink for the journey. So the man in question (who was scary) had to demand that the bus stop whenever he needed to go.
    For the rest of us, we managed to hold on for the rest stop at around mid-night. We were able to get snacks & coffee as well. And there was a local at the stop with a pet chicken that liked to be patted. Cute. We were delayed at some point through the night by a traffic accident. We were held up for a few hours, the bus turned the engines off, and then back on again as it was so hot so we had some aircon. This went on for 2 hrs. The 12 hour trip turned into 14 hours and to make matters worse, we were dropped off outside Hoi An as the bus could not take us right into the centre. We had to drag our bags around town looking for a hotel.
    We found out later that the Hahn bus company was the better option.

    I booked my open bus ticket from Hue to Hoi An with Sinh Café. You can check out their website at http://www.sinhcafevn.com. As you would have heard before, there are many fake Sinf Café in Vietnam so make sure you go the right one. In the website you can find the address of all their branches around Vietnam

  • Hoi An - Danang airport Taxi

    by leehc Written Dec 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 3 taxi companies at the car park outside the Danang Airport terminal building. They run by meter. Trip cost us about 298,000 VND (US$16) in an MPV taxi. Trip takes about 35 min.
    From Hoi An to airport, we made arrangements with one of the taxi drivers who was taking us from town back to hotel. He spoke good English and seemed reliable (our instinct was right). He turned up punctually at the agreed time. [His name is Quy (pronounced Oui); hp no. 0905-337431] This time the metered fare was 260,000 VND.
