Public Taxis Danang- Hoi An (và Cost)

The very visible bright yellow FaiFoo taxis are based up in Danang but bởi drive sầu all over the region.

In most Asian destinations you’ll be tripping over taxis. This is true in both Danang International Airport và Danang Railway Station. All taxis are metered và you’ll need lớn make sure that the drivers use their meters.

If they refuse just leave & get another taxi. I’ve not had a taxi refuse to use their meter in nearly 6 months, but it can happen, particularly on public holidays lượt thích Tet.

There are 3 main xe taxi companies in the region và prices are very similar as are their standards.

Mai Linc taxi company has green taxis and the drivers normally wear a white and green jacket.Faifoo taxis are yellow with Faifoo written down the side of each vehicle. VinaSun is another big company that operates across Danang và Hoi An & uses White cars with red & green arrows in a circle as their biệu tượng công ty.

The price from Danang Airport is between 350,000 Dong- 450,000 Dong ($15-$20US) depending on where your hotel is located. It is a similar price from Danang Railway Station although it will depover on the time of day and traffic as you’ll need to drive sầu through Danang first until you get to the coast road or inlvà highway.

Mai Linch Taxi company has a heavy presence in Hoi An và in Danang. They are practically

The benefit of taking a taxi is you can show up and jump in the first one and go. Especially if you’re not sure of when you’ll arrive & don’t lượt thích making prearranged plans.

The downside is that it can be more expensive sầu than organising a car before you arrive và you’ll need local currency to pay for the journey. Keep your wits about you especially if you have just arrived in the country. Taxis the world over have sầu been known khổng lồ drive the ‘long’ way to the destination so make sure they think you know exactly where you are và where your destination is. A mobile phone with maps open on your lap is great for this.

Public Bus Between Danang và Hoi An

One of the recognisable yellow buses that operate in Danang và down to Hoi An. Cheap & cheerful but certainly not luxury và harder with luggage.

The pubic bus from Danang to lớn Hoi An is route 1 & departs và arrives 1 blochồng over from the railway station. The buses are small and if you have a lot of luggage it could be problematic. With a small bag, it is OK. On leaving the railway station just walk straight out & along the road leading directly away from the station. At the first phối of lights, there is a T junction. The bus runs along this road first road.

The signs are written in Vietnamese but are easy enough to lớn read & the number 1 is large and on the front of the bus. It will drive sầu through Danang đô thị and then take the inlvà road down to Hoi An Bus Station. Travel time is approximately 45 minutes lớn an hour depending on traffic and the cost is 30,000 Dong ($1.25US). If your bag takes a seat up you’ll be expected lớn pay for that as well.

Hoi An Bus Station is located 2 km to the centre of the old town although there are plenty of taxis here to take you to lớn a khách sạn or destination of your choice. It’s certainly walkable.

From Danang International Airport there isn’t a bus directly to lớn Hoi An. You could catch the bus that goes past the airport (it doesn’t enter the airport complex) and change buses or walk approximately 1 km inkhổng lồ town và piông chồng up the bus from there. Alternatively, you could catch a xe taxi to lớn the bus stop. Unless you’re really trying to lớn save as much as possible I wouldn’t catch a bus from the airport as the hassle isn’t worth the saved money. If there are 4 people the two buses or bus/xe taxi won’t save sầu you at all.

Uber or Grab Taxis in Central Vietnam

Uber và Grab are operational in both Danang và Hoi An. You should have no trouble finding either in both the airport và the railway station. Just make sure you have the app loaded onto your phone. You’ll also need data if the airport WiFi isn’t working.

Grab is the bigger company and slightly cheaper. Based in Singapore it allows taxis to lớn use Grab as well as the normal taxis service. This means your Grab could be a normal xe taxi that is ‘moonlighting’ legally as a private service.

They also have sầu motorbike Grab if you’re alone and this is significantly cheaper. I’ve seen numerous backpackers with bags on their baông xã take this service. Grab should provide a helmet for the pillion passenger but be warned the unique of helmets in Vietnam giới isn’t up lớn international standards. Accidents on the road here are 3-4 times that of Europe, especially on two wheels.

I’ve sầu not had much luck using Grab and prefer Uber where I find the cars are of a higher standard. Uber has also started using motorxe đạp pickups alongside its Uber X and Uber SUV for larger families or luggage. I haven’t used UberBike yet so I can’t comment on their service but imagine that it is similar khổng lồ Grab. All xe đạp riders need a helmet by law so I imagine they provide this lượt thích Grab.

The price is very dependent on the time of day và dem&. This is how Uber and Grab operate across the globe và while I noticed that during New Year there was no price surge (Vietnamese don’t celebrate NYE) during Tet it was either massively inflated or just unavailable.

As an example, the fares from Danang Airport to lớn Hoi An at 1400 hours were 165,000 Dong ($7.50 US) for an Uber Bike và 350,000 Dong ($14 US) for an Uber X. The SUV was about $2 US more.

Shuttle Transfers khổng lồ Hoi An from Danang

Shuttle buses are perfect for larger groups who don’t mind sharing. While not as frequent và not direct, the cost reflects this. Shuttle buses will normally only stop a few times to lớn pick up and drop off other passengers in Hoi An. Unfortunately with the increase in private hire companies this option is becoming less common as it is often cheaper khổng lồ just book a whole minibus for your group.

This is a typical shuttle bus that runs between Danang & Hoi An in both directions. You can also hire it out solely for your tiệc nhỏ if you have large numbers.

This option isn’t readily available from Danang Railway Station at present and I doubt it will return anytime soon.

With so many options getting from Danang to Hoi An at multiple price points it really is as easy or hard as you make it. I’ve sầu done all of the above sầu during my 6 months in Hoi An, from both the airport and railway station & enjoyed them all. Take your pichồng and enjoy the ride.

If you’re time short và want to lớn fly from Ho Chi Minc city you can kiểm tra out options here. It isn’t as nice as the train but it is much quicker. Just note that you’ll need lớn get from Danang International Airport down to lớn Hoi An as there isn’t an airport in Hoi An. See the above sầu for your options.
