How to get from Nha Trang to Hoi An

When traveling from Nha Trang to Hoi An, you basically have two options; flying or taking one of the sleeper buses.

If you are on a budget I would recommend taking the bus as it is the cheapest option. It takes approx. 11hours and the price is VND 250.000 pp (USD 10).

It is also worth mentioning that you could get super cheap flight tickets as well, price varying from VND 550.000 – 950.000 pp (USD 20 – 50).

I had read a couple of hundreds bad reviews about the sleeper buses, so I don’t know exactly why I ended up choosing that option, but still.. it is quite genius to travel during the night😊 and it went fine!

Tip: We booked everything through beforehand, but I know that you can get better prices if you book directly at The SinhTourist office in Nha Trang.

Our bus had recliner seats, A/C, and we were provided with water and blankets on departure. The bus itself had two storeys with three individual rows of seats. The driver did not speak English, but the girls working in the office was happy to help us with any inquires we had ☺️

I would recommend requesting for a seat on the ground level when checking in at the office 30 minutes before departure. The bus does not offer much space for your daybag or other belongings and we therefore used the floor to store our things. I do not know how the people above us managed to store their belongings..

The recliner seat is also rather small. I am 164cm tall, and I barely had room for my feet 😬

Kindly note that your luggage is stored under the bus, and I recommend bringing the bare minimum with you inside the bus.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Big hugs! πŸ’›
