To get from Hoi An to Danang airport, there are several solutions available to you. You can take the bus, being the slower but cost-friendly option. There is also the more expensive yet much faster choice of taking a taxi, through shuttle agencies. Prices vary from single to double.
If you are using a private driver, do not hesitate to stop at the Marble Mountains if you have not already done so.
When booking your hotel, pay attention to the advertised rate. Some people have contacted me to say that some establishments were asking for 400,000 VND, even 500,000 VND, much more than the usual rates.
MODES OF TRANSPORT
Taking the bus is the option preferred by backpackers since it is the most affordable. It takes 45 minutes. It costs 30.000 VND. However, you don’t arrive directly at the airport. You will have to walk a few metres. If you have big cases, avoid this option.
BY SHUTTLE BUS
The shuttles seat 16 people. They take you to your hotel with other travellers. It is a cheaper way if you are travelling with others. Shuttles start at 4am.
Price: 110,000 VND per person
There are several companies but my favourite is Hoi An Express.
The reservation must be made at least 2 hours in advance.
All the companies Mailinh, Faifoo taxi or Vinasun are the same price, 360.000 VND max.
Go for Faifoo. Mailinh or Vinasun do not have a good reputation in Hoi An, unlike in the rest of Vietnam.
If you are less than 2 people, it’s cheaper and friendlier than the bus.
BY PRIVATE CAR
Prices vary between 270,000 and 300,000 VND, depending on the driver. It’s cheaper than taking a taxi.
Don’t hesitate to make a detour by the Marble Mountains which are located at the entrance of the city.
