Travelling by bus from Da Nang Airport to Hoi An is affordable. A ticket only costs 20,000 VND ($0.85) 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 to 17:50. This is the same bus that makes a stop close to Da Nang Airport.

It’s a 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.

The nearest public bus stop to Da Nang Railway Station is located at 155 Le Duan Road. That’s 750 m away or a 10-minute walk.
