How To Get From Quy Nhon to Hoi An?
We recommend traveling from Quy Nhon to Hoi An by train. You can take a train from Dieu Tri to Da Nang and then take a public bus to Hoi An. This total journey from Quy Nhon to Hoi An takes about 6 hours in total and is a convenient way of traveling.
There are direct buses from Quy Nhon to Hoi An, but they are not as safe and comfortable as the train. There are several reports that bus drivers don’t drive safely on this specific route. Unfortunately, you cannot book your bus tickets online.
The closest airport to Quy Nhon is Phu Cat and takes about 1 hour from Quy Nhon. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights leaving from here to Hoi An. All flights stop in Ho Chi Minh before flying to Quy Nhon. This makes the travel time by flight the same as taking the train. For this reason, we do not recommend to fly this route but to take the train instead.

Things to do in Hoi An
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.
