About the ride from Hoi An to Nha Trang

The picturesque town of Hoi An is a wonderful mix of colorful sights, sounds, and flavors! From wandering the atmospheric alleys of the Ancient Town (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) to taking Instagram worthy pics on the famous Japanese Covered Bridge and from sunbathing on An Bang Beach to picking up souvenirs at the pretty Lantern Market, there’s plenty to see and do in Hoi An.

On the other hand, Nha Trang is a dazzling beach resort town with an energy all its own. Spend the day scuba diving into its blue-green waters, discovering the Po Nagar Cham Towers, or soaking in one of the many mud baths. You could also rent a boat and go island-hopping. Once the sun goes down, head to Nha Trang’s most happening night clubs and swanky bars and party the night away! 

It takes anywhere between 9 - 13 hours to cover the 318 miles (510 km) from Hoi An to Nha Trang. Travelers can choose from overnight buses, private minivans and taxis. 

The overnight buses are a convenient, popular, and cost-effective way of traveling. All of them have comfortable, reclining seats and reach Nha Trang in the early morning. Though a more expensive option, private minivans and taxis provide a tremendous amount of flexibility and are perfect for bigger groups or families traveling with children.


What to see when traveling from Hoi An to Nha Trang

The overnight buses to Nha Trang start from Hoi An at around 17.00 or 18.00 so you can sit back and watch the sun go down in Hoi An. The buses reach Nha Trang early the next morning, just as the first rays of the sun hit this beach town. 

If you are renting a private taxi or minivan and traveling during the day, you will get plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Vietnamese countryside and get a peek into the lives of regular Vietnamese folk as they go about their everyday life. The road from Hoi An to Nha Trang takes you through small towns and charming villages and gives you an insight into rural Vietnam - one that is real and far removed from the trappings of the country’s tourist hotspots.


How to get from Hoi An to Nha Trang

Taking a bus

Buses are the most economical way to travel to Nha Trang from Hoi An. With ticket prices starting from as low as $13, it is a good option for backpackers and budget travelers. Most of these overnight buses take 10-13 hours for the journey, starting in the evening from Hoi An and reaching Nha Trang in the early morning; a great way to save on hotel charges!

All the buses are air-conditioned and are fitted with cushioned, reclining seats. Some of the operators provide travelers with a blanket, food, and water. 


Taking a minivan

Minivans are another option available for those looking to travel from Hoi An to Nha Trang. It’s the perfect choice for groups of up to 8 passengers or those who prefer daytime travel. With the option to rent a car seat, it is a good choice for larger families traveling with kids. Travel times are usually around 9 - 9 ½ hours, and the minivans offer hotel pick up and drop off.  


Hiring a private car/taxi 

For solo travelers and couples who prefer the convenience of a hotel pick up and drop off, have extra luggage, or want some flexibility in timing and privacy, renting a private car or taxi is the right choice. Baby car seats are available for an additional charge. Travel times are similar to private minivans with the journey taking about 9 - 9 ½ hours.
