Bus from Mui Ne to Hoi An

The bus is not the safest option, but a lot easier than taking the train. The advantage of the bus is that they leave from Mui Ne center and drop 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 travel to Mui Ne railway station and also from Da Nang to Hoi An. Take in mind that the taxi from Mui Ne to the railway station already costs €30.

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.
