    About the ride from Nha Trang to Hoi An

    Nha Trang is, in many ways, the perfect seaside destination. Beaches with sparkling blue waters, opportunities to go island-hopping, and the chance to witness a spectacular underwater world at some fabulous snorkeling and diving sites make this one of the most popular vacation spots in Vietnam. But the fun doesn't stop there. As the sun goes down, Nha Trang's vibrant nightlife comes alive. Dine at swanky restaurants and dance the night away at some of the most happening nightclubs! 

    Hoi An, in contrast, has a more relaxed and historical vibe to it. It is truly one of the most picturesque towns in Vietnam with its mustard-colored houses and ornate temples. Lose yourself in the alleys of its atmospheric Old Town, visit the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge or explore the town's fabulous food scene at the Hoi An Riverside. You could even sign up for a cooking class and learn how to shop for the freshest Vietnamese ingredients at the local market and get to prepare some flavorful pho!  

    Traveling the 318 miles (510 km) from Nha Trang to Hoi An takes, depending on how you travel, anywhere between 9-13 hours. Overnight buses, private minivans, and taxis provide multiple departures throughout the day, giving travelers the choice of picking the most convenient time and mode of transport.
