How To Get From DaNang Airport to Hoi An?

We recommend booking an airport shuttle bus to or from DaNang airport on Klook. A representative from Klook will be waiting for you after you picked up your luggage and the ride only costs 120,000 VND ($5.50).

If you want to save some money, you can also take the public bus for 20,000 VND ($1). From the bus stop to the Old Quarter is a 20-minute walk or a short 5min taxi ride.

From the airport, you can take a taxi for 300,000 – 400,000 VND ($13 – $17.50). This option offers the most comfort and is also cheaper than the shuttle bus when you are with more than 2 people.

From DaNang International Airport, you can take one of the shuttle buses departing every hour between 5:00 and 23:00. Tickets cost around 100,000 VND ($4.40) to 120,000 VND ($5.50). They will also drop you off at your accommodation when it’s close to the Old town of Hoi An.

An even easier option is to book a shuttle bus in advance. On Klook you can book a shuttle bus for 125,000 VND ($5.50) and the advantage is that someone with a Klook sign will be waiting for you as soon as you arrive. This way you don’t have to wait in the line to buy a ticket or search for the departure point.

The shuttle bus operates from 5:00 to 23:00 from Da Nang airport to the center. Their service from Hoi An to the Airport starts from 4:00 with the last departure at 22:00. You can use the button below to book this shuttle bus.

Another option is taking the yellow public bus #1 which runs every 20 minutes till 18:00. You catch this bus from the bus stop at “33 Dien Bien Phu, Thanh Khe District, Danang”.  The bus takes around 45 min and only costs 20,000 VND ($1).

Don’t expect a high standard and be aware that bus drivers often try to overcharge tourists. Just point politely to the sign with the correct prices and don’t let them fool you.

The bus ends at Hoi An bus station at “ben xe Nguyen Tat Thanh” which is about a 20 minutes walk to the Old Town. From this station, you can also take the bus to the airport.

When you’re traveling in a group of 3 or more people, we suggest booking a private taxi.

For a taxi to Hoi An, expect to pay around 300,000 VND ($13) to 400,000 VND ($17.50). You can hail one at the airport, use Grab (Asian Uber) to order book one with Klook. We prefer Klook as a booking provider for airport transfers as they offer good rates and have good drivers and cars.

For a group of 3 travelers, expect to pay 270,000 VND ($12) from Da Nang Airport to Hoi An. Just click the button below.

Reserve a Private Transfer

A third option is to book a rideshare with Klook for only 80,000 VND ($3.50) per person. This car leaves from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm every hour. It’s a very cheap option but the disadvantage is that the car will leave when you can’t make it on time to the car.
