2. Local Bus To/From Da Nang
You can travel to Hoi An by high quality buses for tourists (such as An Phu bus). You can buy tickets at any hotel; it costs 3 US$ and it includes pick-up from your hotel and takes just 40 minutes (highly recommend).
If you prefer public buses, there is a bus station in town. One might assume that you can save a big amount by catching a regular bus, rather than booking something in town, but that’s not really the case. The buses at the station go to the north and to the south, especially towards Da Nang. Such a ticket costs 10,000 VND (~0.7 US$). The downside is that the public buses stop at various stations along the way, and even if it’s only 35 Km from Da Nang to Hoi An, the journey takes about 2 hours to complete.
