When travelling the 725 km journey from Hoi An to Mui Ne, you have 2 options: you can take the bus ($21) or the train ($65.50). Travel time is 16 to 18 hours.
Since there is no airport close to Mui Ne, you have to take the bus or train from Hoi An to Mui Ne. This journey will take at least 14.5 hours and that’s why we don’t recommend travelling this long distance in one leg.
Still want to cover this distance in one journey? Then we suggest to take the bus. The bus is not the fastest and safest option, but a lot easier than taking the train. The Sinh Tourist bus leaves from Hoi An centre and also drops you off in the centre of Mui Ne.
The train offers more comfort and is safer than travelling by bus. But this is not the easiest option. You have to book a train from DaNang to Muong Man railway station. From Hoi An to Da Nang takes 45 minutes and from Muong Man to Mui Ne takes about 1 hour.
There is only one direct bus that operates from Hoi An to Mui Ne and this is run by Ha Linh. Travel time is 14.5 hours and costs 385,000 VND ($15.50).
Another bus you can book online is run by The Sinh Tourist, a well-known bus company in Vietnam. It also receives fewer complaints than other bus companies. However, it makes an almost 3-hr stopover in Nha Trang, making the journey last up to 18hrs.
The advantage of the bus is that they bring you from the centre of Hoi An to Mui Ne centre, at least if you travel with The Sinh Tourist or Ha Linh. The disadvantage is that it is a very long and exhausting journey and not as safe as the train.
We prefer travelling with The Sinh Tourist because it is more reliable. It also allows you to stretch your legs for a couple of hours and even have breakfast in Nha Trang.
Le Huynh Hotel is directly located on the main street of Mui Ne. You’ll reach restaurants, bars, and the beach within walking distance. The spacious rooms are clean and the staff is always happy to answer your questions - what else to ask for?
