About the ride from Hue to Da Nang

Historic Da Nang is way more than just one of Vietnam’s most exciting beach destinations. With its iconic marble mountains, French colonial architecture and two of Southeast Asia’s strangest bridges, there are plenty of attractions on offer. And because it’s so close to Hue, many tourists travel from Hue to Da Nang every day.

For the short 93km (58 mile) journey to Da Nang from Hue, you have four simple and accessible options: 

 

  • Bus from Hue to Da Nang - typically around 3 hours
  • Car from Hue to Da Nang - typically around 3 hours
  • Minivan from Hue to Da Nang - typically around 2 hours
  • Train from Hue to Da Nang - typically around 2.5 hours

All journeys are comfortable and simple, and some are very affordable. Some of these transport options offer views of the iconic Hai Van Pass, one of Vietnam’s most vivid vistas.

 

 

What to see when traveling from Hue to Da Nang

The big attraction on this journey is the unparalleled Hai Van Pass. One of Vietnam’s most incredible sights, the Hai Van Pass is a 20-kilometer mountain pass which sits between Hue and Da Nang. At an elevation of 500 meters, it offers a phenomenal panorama of Vietnam’s deep-blue ocean along with crashing waves, verdant drops and golden shores.

If you want to travel over the pass on your journey from Hue to Da Nang, you should travel by private minivan, private car or train. By train, you don’t travel on the pass itself, but you get much the same views. 

If you choose to travel in a private vehicle, you can request your own route and your own photo stops, making this your best option if you really want to indulge in Hai Van’s views.

If you travel by road in a non-private vehicle, your ride is likely to use the more convenient tunnel route, instead of driving over the pass itself.
