How To Get From Hoi An to Mui Ne?

Since there is no airport close to Mui Ne, you have to take the train or bus from Hoi An to Mui Ne. This journey will take at least 15 hours and that’s why we don’t recommend to travel this long distance in one leg.

Still want to cover this distance in one journey? Then we suggest to take the bus. The bus is not the fastest and safest option, but a lot easier than taking the train. The Sinh Tourist bus leaves from Hoi An center and also drops you off in the center of Hoi An.

The train offers more comfort and is safer than traveling by bus. But this is not the easiest option. You have to book a train from DaNang to Muon Man railway station. From Hoi An to Da Nang takes 45 minutes and from Muon Man to Mui Ne takes about one hour.

Since there is no airport close to Mui Ne, you have to take the train or bus from Hoi An to Mui Ne.

Hoi An to Mui Ne by Bus

Duration: 18 hours
Costs: 430,000 VND ($19)

There are no direct buses leaving from Hoi An to Mui Ne. All buses stop in Nha Trang or DaLat.

The advantage of the bus is that they bring you from the center of Hoi An to Mui Ne center. At least if you travel with Hanh Cafe or Sinh Tourist Bus. The disadvantage is that it is a very long and exhausting journey and not as safe as the train.

Sinh Tourist Bus and Hanh Cafe are also one of the most popular bus companies in Vietnam. They receive fewer complaints than other bus companies.

We prefer the Sinh Tourist bus since this has the shortest stopover and takes 2 hours less. Want to have more time to stretch your legs in Nha Trang? Then go for Hanh Cafe bus. This bus stops 1.5 hour in Nha Trang.
