Travelling by bus from Da Nang Airport to Hoi An is very cheap. A ticket only costs 20,000 VND ($0.80) for the 1-hour journey. This option involves a bit of a walk though.

Catch the yellow public bus #1, which runs every 20 minutes from 05:30 till 17:50. This is the same bus that makes a stop close to Da Nang Airport.

It’s a very cheap ride so don’t expect a high level of service. You’ll be quite comfortable, but you might want to buy an extra seat for your luggage if you’re carrying a lot.

Also, note that bus drivers often try to overcharge tourists. Just point politely to the correct prices on their price matrix, which is often posted on the bus. You can also show them the pricelist on the official website of Da Nang Bus.
