  1. Motobike rental.

Traveling by motorbike is the most exciting option of all. Most locals travel in between Da Nang and Hoi An because it is the most popular form of transportation in Vietnam, and it allows for flexibility to visit destinations along the way.

However, if this is your first time in Vietnam and you are not familiar with driving a vehicle similar to the motorbike, I would not recommend this option because it is fairly risky. Traffic in Vietnam is quite different from traffic in other countries; driving requires a special set of skills like situation awareness, good reflexes, excellent balance, and guts of steel. If you do not have this set of skills, do not take the risk.

You will have to leave your ID or your passport – sometimes they allow a copy – at the rental shop in order to rent a motorbike and ensure the bike’s safe return. You can either go directly to the shop to retrieve the bike or you can pay the shop extra money and they will bring it to your place.

+ Price: 120.000 VND (~6 US$) / per day.

+ Time: flexible.

  1. Taxi

Taxis are the most convenient and also considered the easiest way to get to Hoi An from Da Nang since from the city center (or the airport) you can just catch a taxi and get on in without making any prior arrangement. It will take you around 30 – 45 minutes and will cost you from $15 to $23 USD. Make sure your driver is aware of where to take you to. Some of them may not be very familiar with the Hoi An area and they could end up driving in circles trying to find the destination. Also, to avoid scams, you should choose a well-known taxi brand:

  • In Da Nang:

Mai Linh Taxi: +84 236 352 5252

Song Han Taxi: +84 236 372 7272

Tien Sa Da Nang Taxi: +84 236 379 7979

Vinasun Taxi: +84 236 368 6868

  • In Hoi An:

Taxi Faifo:  0235 3 919191

There is a new service that recently launched at the Da Nang airport – Dichungtaxi (shared Taxi). By booking your taxi on their site, the system will send your booking information to drivers and have them pick you up. You can share the taxi with other people heading the same way by choosing the “share” option. If not, you can always take the “private” taxi as usual. This new service is potentially cheaper than other normal options and can also help you avoid being scammed since their pricing is fixed based on the package you select. Shared taxis will be around 150.000 VND ($7) and the normal one will be 220.000 VND ($10).

  1. Private car
