There used to be a shuttle service from DaNang Airport that you can book once you have arrived at the airport, but unfortunately, this service doesn’t run anymore.

The only option you now have is to book for a shuttle bus in advance. You can easily book one on the online activity and transportation platform Klook for 130,000 VND ($5.50). This includes drop-off at your hotel if it is located in the center of Hoi An.

Another 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 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 at 4:00 with the last departure at 22:00. You can use the button below to book this shuttle bus.

Another option is to take the yellow public bus #1, which runs every 20 minutes till 18:00. You can catch this bus from the bus stop at 33 Dien Bien Phu, Thanh Khe District, DaNang.  The bus takes around 45min 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-min walk to the Old Town. From this station, you can also take the bus to the airport.

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

For a taxi to Hoi An, expect to pay around 290,000 VND ($12.50) to 400,000 VND ($17.50). You can hail one at the airport, use Grab (Asian Uber), or 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.

When booking with Klook, you can get a 3-seater car for 290,000 VND ($12.50) 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 to 16:30 every hour. It’s a very cheap option but the disadvantage is that the car will leave even when you can’t make it on time.
