How To Travel From Da nang to Hoi An?

Looking for the best way to get from Da Nang To Hoi An to see places link An Bang Beach?

Feeling like you’ve run out of options when you think of places to go? Forget Ha Long Bay and Sapa – it’s time to discover Hoi An. The unique, charming town has been voted the top place to visit in Vietnam again and again by travellers from around the globe.

Hoi An is a wonderful destination in Vietnam and is sometimes referred to as ‘Little Hoi An’, which is located 18 km south of Da Nang, the country’s largest city. Its origins go back to the 15th century when Chinese and Japanese traders settled there. Today, the town retains its old world charm and despite being a popular tourist destination has remained largely unspoiled by mass tourism.

Unlike most of the country, which is popular for its nightlife, Hoi An is a charming little town that’s more about looking at cows than clubbing. Its lanes are lined with traditional Japanese-inspired architecture of red-tiled roofs and terracotta walls; its alleyways filled with unique boutiques selling everything from pottery to local handcrafted goods.
