How to get from Mui Ne to Hoi An
First of all, we do not recommend to travel from Mui Ne to Hoi An in one leg. Instead, make a stop in DaLat or Nha Trang to split this long journey.
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.
There is no airport close to Mui Ne. This means you first have to travel to Ho Chi Minh or Nha Trang if you want to fly from Mui Ne to Hoi An. This won’t save you any time compared to the train or bus.
