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.

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.
