    The Boat Thing

    by muddybok Updated Sep 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beside cyclo & bike (too fast to tour Hoi An), boat service across the river for bringing goods to wet market, passengers & also bicycle from the other side of river bank is consider quite convenient. I don't not know the fair across the river, but almost attempt to do it.

    What held me back was the overcrowded condition in the boat; also I don't know whether they will throw a foreigner like me into water for occupied spaces in their regular boat. You know? Big ass & tummy kind of thing!!?

    Walking

    by pmarshuk Written Dec 9, 2003

    One of the great things about Hoi An is is small size and compactness. Almost everything is within easy walking distance and the town is pretty flat so no major hills involved.
    Although you will see lots of moto cycle drivers trying to get you to use them you really don't need them

    There are many travel agencies in the modern part of Hoi An. I used this as I had a hop on hop off bus from Saigon and it stopped me here. Each little agency has its own minibus with daytrips to the beach, MySon... and longer trips to Danang, Hue, Hanoi...

    Local Boats

    If you want to have a boat ride in the Thu Bon River, you can hire a private rowing boat (with driver) for 2 USD/hour. But if you are in a budget, there are some local boats (see pic) that cross the river to transport people from one side to the other and are much much cheaper. You can take them near the market by the riverfront.

    Bus

    by SirRichard Written Oct 1, 2003

    I arrived and left the place on one of those "hop on- hop off" buses that go along the coast of Vietnam, from Saigon to Hanoi and viceversa. There are many of these private buses, almost each little national travel agency runs one, so you won't have problems finding one.
    When they arrive to a city, the driver will take you directly to the hotel THEY recommend and will try to convince you to see the room and stay there. But you can refuse and tell them you already have a reservation somewhere else, go out of the bus and take a taxi. Nevertheless, I used to stay in thos echeap hotels they recommended and couldn't complain of any...

    Stroll Around

    The centre of Hoi An is a great place to walk around. No cars or lorries are allowed but as this is Vietnam there are motorbikes everywhere so you need to keep an eye out!
    As you walk be sure to look up. There is some beautiful architecture to be seen above the shophouses.
    Go late in the afternoon when it is cooler or early in the morning to see the local people out and about.

    TM Brothers and the pain

    Being hard girls we took the whole trip from Saigon at once, so 24h on the road. After the nice huge bus with only 9 tourists inside, we had to change on the small one packed till the last place. And the road, reminded me of Cambodia. Take a place in the front so you won´t feel every hole in the street like I did. And bring a lot of coolness with you.

    Cycle around town

    If you do not want to walk, you can rent a bicycle for just 16,000 dong and tour around town. Also a good way if you want to check out the off the beaten track places.

    Danang Airport

    The closest airport to Hoi An is Danang. I don't remember exactly, but it's something along the lines of a $10 taxi fare to the center of Hoi An from there.
