Option 1: Public Bus
Route: Da Nang Railway Station Hoi An
Duration: 1 hour
Costs: 20.000 VND (€0,80)
From the railway station, it’s a 10-minute walk to the public bus stop. Go straight when you walk out of the railway station and turn left when you stand in front of the pizza hut on the corner of the street (4-minute walk).
From here it’s a 500m walk (6 minutes) to the bus stop located at “155 Le Duan road”.
From this bus stop, you can catch the yellow public bus #1, running every 20 minutes from 5:30 till 17:50.
See here the exact route:
Đà Nẵng central bus station – Tôn Đức Thắng –Điện Biên Phủ –Hà Huy Tập – Hà Khê – Nguyễn Tất Thành – Ông Ích Khiêm – Lê Duẩn – Chi Lăng – Hùng Vương –Trần Phú – Trưng Nữ Vương – Núi Thành – Duy Tân – Cầu Trần Thị Lý – Ngũ Hành Sơn – Lê Văn Hiến – Trần Đại Nghĩa – Hội An bus station.
Yellow bus #1 is also the same bus that passes by the bus stop close to the airport. The bus ride takes around half an hour to Hoi An and only costs you 18.000 VND (€0,80). But don’t expect a high service level for this price.
Also, note that bus drivers often try to overcharge tourists. Just point politely to the correct prices on their official website and don’t let them fool you.

Things to do in Hoi An
Unfortanetely, I don't have a list of things to do yet. But, at least I can recommend you a good website.
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.
