If you haven’t found your best transport option yet, no problem. This was just the intro. Below we share our step-by-step guide of how to get from DaNang Airport to Hoi An.
Airport shuttle from/to DaNang Airport
Costs: 120.000 VND (€5)
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 to 120.000 VND (€4 to €5). 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 €5 pp 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.

Public Bus from/to DaNang Airport
Costs: 20.000 VND (€0,80)
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 (€0,80).
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.
Taxi from/to DaNang Airport
Costs: 400.000 VND (€15)
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 to 400.000 VND (€11-15). 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 (€10,35) from Da Nang Airport to Hoi An. Just click the button below.
A third option is to book a rideshare with Klook for only 80.000 VND (€3) 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.

Things to do in Hoi An
The online activity platform Klook offers many tours in Hoi An at great prices. I used it now for a couple of times and had great experiences. And the prices are often even lower than when you book with a local travel agent!
And most important, by booking the activity in advance, you avoid the problem of fully booked tours.
