As many trains can get fully booked quickly, it is advisable to buy train tickets at least a few days in advance. If you have to put your journey back one day due to your preferred train being fully booked, it is such a pity!

Traveling by motorbike is a good option, and a good way of getting from A to B in the city’s manic streets but only for those who are really confident on a motorbike. A 30-kilometer drive along the coastal road will give you a chance to make a stop at the majestic but rather kitch Marble Mountain. It is well worth a stop as you can admire the city from one of the highest viewpoints on the coast.

Another and the cheapest option is to get the local bus for 15,000 VND each way. There are buses leaving from the station just off Le Hong Phong Street – a 15-minute walk from Hoian town — every 30 minutes or so, and about 45 minutes later, you will be dropped off at the main bus station on the outskirts of Danang.

The local bus is doable if you need to get to Danang for onward travel by either train or plane, however, from the city bus station, you will need to make separate arrangements, which adds on both money and time. A one-way car ride will set you back for from VND 200,000 to 250,000 and you will be dropped off at both the train station and airport.
