Public Taxis Danang- Hoi An (và Cost)

*
The very visible bright yellow FaiFoo taxis are based up in Danang but vì drive all over the region.

In most Asian destinations you’ll be tripping over taxis. This is true in both Danang International Airport và Danang Railway Station. All taxis are metered và you’ll need to lớn make sure that the drivers use their meters.

If they refuse just leave sầu & get another taxi. I’ve not had a xe taxi refuse to use their meter in nearly 6 months, but it can happen, particularly on public holidays like Tet.

There are 3 main xe taxi companies in the region and prices are very similar as are their standards.

Mai Linch xe taxi company has green taxis and the drivers normally wear a Trắng and green jacket.Faifoo taxis are yellow with Faifoo written down the side of each vehicle. VinaSun is another big company that operates across Danang & Hoi An and uses White cars with red & green arrows in a circle as their logo.

The price from Danang Airport is between 350,000 Dong- 450,000 Dong ($15-$20US) depending on where your khách sạn is located. It is a similar price from Danang Railway Station although it will depkết thúc on the time of day và traffic as you’ll need lớn drive sầu through Danang first until you get to the coast road or inl& highway.

Mai Linc Taxi company has a heavy presence in Hoi An & in Danang. They are practically

The benefit of taking a taxi is you can show up and jump in the first one & go. Especially if you’re not sure of when you’ll arrive sầu & don’t like making prearranged plans.

The downside is that it can be more expensive sầu than organising a oto before you arrive & you’ll need local currency khổng lồ pay for the journey. Keep your wits about you especially if you have sầu just arrived in the country. Taxis the world over have sầu been known to drive sầu the ‘long’ way to lớn the destination so make sure they think you know exactly where you are & where your destination is. A mobile phone with maps open on your lap is great for this.

Public Bus Between Danang và Hoi An

*
One of the recognisable yellow buses that operate in Danang và down lớn Hoi An. Cheap and cheerful but certainly not luxury và harder with luggage.

The pubic bus from Danang lớn Hoi An is route 1 and departs và arrives 1 bloông chồng over from the railway station. The buses are small và if you have sầu a lot of luggage it could be problematic. With a small bag, it is OK. On leaving the railway station just walk straight out & along the road leading directly away from the station. At the first phối of lights, there is a T junction. The bus runs along this road first road.

The signs are written in Vietnamese but are easy enough lớn read and the number 1 is large & on the front of the bus. It will drive sầu through Danang thành phố và then take the inlvà road down to Hoi An Bus Station. Travel time is approximately 45 minutes to lớn an hour depending on traffic and the cost is 30,000 Dong ($1.25US). If your bag takes a seat up you’ll be expected to pay for that as well.

Hoi An Bus Station is located 2 km to lớn the centre of the old town although there are plenty of taxis here lớn take you to lớn a khách sạn or destination of your choice. It’s certainly walkable.

From Danang International Airport there isn’t a bus directly to Hoi An. You could catch the bus that goes past the airport (it doesn’t enter the airport complex) & change buses or walk approximately 1 km into town & piông xã up the bus from there. Alternatively, you could catch a xe taxi to lớn the bus stop. Unless you’re really trying to save as much as possible I wouldn’t catch a bus from the airport as the hassle isn’t worth the saved money. If there are 4 people the two buses or bus/taxi won’t save you at all.

Uber or Grab Taxis in Central Vietnam

Uber & Grab are operational in both Danang and Hoi An. You should have sầu no trouble finding either in both the airport và the railway station. Just make sure you have the ứng dụng loaded onto your phone. You’ll also need data if the airport WiFi isn’t working.

Grab is the bigger company và slightly cheaper. Based in Singapore it allows taxis to use Grab as well as the normal taxis service. This means your Grab could be a normal xe taxi that is ‘moonlighting’ legally as a private service.

They also have motorxe đạp Grab if you’re alone và this is significantly cheaper. I’ve sầu seen numerous backpackers with bags on their bachồng take this service. Grab should provide a helmet for the pillion passenger but be warned the unique of helmets in Vietphái mạnh isn’t up khổng lồ international standards. Accidents on the road here are 3-4 times that of Europe, especially on two wheels.

I’ve sầu not had much luck using Grab và prefer Uber where I find the cars are of a higher standard. Uber has also started using motorbike pickups alongside its Uber X and Uber SUV for larger families or luggage. I haven’t used UberBike yet so I can’t phản hồi on their service but imagine that it is similar lớn Grab. All xe đạp riders need a helmet by law so I imagine they provide this like Grab.

The price is very dependent on the time of day and demand. This is how Uber & Grab operate across the globe & while I noticed that during New Year there was no price surge (Vietnamese don’t celebrate NYE) during Tet it was either massively inflated or just unavailable.

As an example, the fares from Danang Airport khổng lồ Hoi An at 1400 hours were 165,000 Dong ($7.50 US) for an Uber Bike & 350,000 Dong ($14 US) for an Uber X. The SUV was about $2 US more.

Shuttle Transfers lớn Hoi An from Danang

Shuttle buses are perfect for larger groups who don’t mind sharing. While not as frequent & not direct, the cost reflects this. Shuttle buses will normally only stop a few times lớn pick up & drop off other passengers in Hoi An. Unfortunately with the increase in private hire companies this option is becoming less comtháng as it is often cheaper to just book a whole minibus for your group.

This is a typical shuttle bus that runs between Danang and Hoi An in both directions. You can also hire it out solely for your party if you have large numbers.

This option isn’t readily available from Danang Railway Station at present và I doubt it will return anytime soon.

With so many options getting from Danang to lớn Hoi An at multiple price points it really is as easy or hard as you make it. I’ve sầu done all of the above sầu during my 6 months in Hoi An, from both the airport & railway station & enjoyed them all. Take your pichồng và enjoy the ride.
