Flying from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) or Hanoi is the quickest option. The journey takes only 1 hour to Danang Airport. Hoi An is 30 km from the latter, you can take a car, bus, or shuttle to get to Hoi An.

  • By car from Danang to Hoi An

If you arrive at Danang Airport, the best way to get to Hoi An is to take a car. However, be careful with taxis, as they can inflate prices and charge high tips. We therefore recommend that you rent a car directly from Danang Airport. You can obtain information from your travel agency or hotel. Alternatively, you can also look for shuttle buses to go to Hoi An.
