Duration: 1.5 hours

Duration: 1.5 hours
Cost: 30,000 VND ($1.25)

The public bus is a very cheap way to travel between DaNang Airport and Hoi An. A ticket only costs 30,000 VND ($1.25) for the 1.5-hour journey.

You are to take Bus #1, which runs every 30 minutes from 05:30-17:50 daily.

Be aware that there are a few disadvantages of taking the public bus:

  • First, the public bus is a local transport and does not have any space for your luggage. Take the public bus only if you’re carrying a bag you can hand-carry.
  • Second, there are no public buses at the airport. The nearest bus stop is located 2km away, so you’ll have to take a motorbike taxi or a regular taxi to get there.
  • Lastly, public buses make a lot of stops. So the journey will take longer, compared to taking a shuttle bus or a taxi.

If you decide to take the public bus, manage your expectations. These are non-aircon buses and do not offer a lot in terms of comfort. Also note that the driver may try to overcharge tourists. The price matrix is often posted in the bus though so just point to that and refuse to pay more.

Departure & Arrival station

The nearest bus stop to the airport is located at 33 Dien Bien Phu in Than Khe District. You can reach it by taking a short motorbike taxi or regular taxi ride from the airport.

Bus #1 parks at Hoi An Bus Station, located 2km from the Old Town. Depending on the location of your hotel, you can find it on foot or take a short taxi ride.

When you’re travelling in a group of 3 or more people, we suggest booking a taxi. You can hail a taxi at the airport, use Grab (Asian Uber), or book a private transfer with BookAway.

We prefer to use BookAway when booking airport transfers because they offer good rates as well as comfortable cars with trusted drivers. Rates start from 320,000 VND ($13.50) for a 3-seater car from DaNang Airport to Hoi An.
