The train is the cheapest way to get from Hoi An to Quy Nhon. There are no direct trains for this route, though. You will make 3 transfers: a bus or taxi from Hoi An to Da Nang, a train from Da Nang to Dieu Tri, and then a bus or taxi from Dieu Tri to Quy Nhon.

Also with the bus, you cannot travel directly from Hoi An to Quy Nhon. You can take the bus from Da Nang and this brings you to the centre of Quy Nhon. Sleeper buses operate on this route and are quite comfortable. But it’s worth noting that trains are generally safer than buses in Vietnam.

If you want a direct transfer from Hoi An to Quy Nhon, you can get a private ride. It’s a bit pricey with fares from 4,370,000 VND ($175), but it’s also convenient because it takes you door-to-door.

Thinking of taking a flight? Technically, you can get one from Da Nang to Phu Cat Airport (1 hour from Quy Nhon). However, all flights make a layover in Ho Chi Minh and take at least 4 hours. Add the airport transfers and you’re already looking at 6 hours of travel time. You’ll be better off taking a cheaper train or bus.
