Da Nang is a big city and navigate through it without transport very difficult. Luckily for budget tourists in the city has an extensive public transport system of buses. The network consists of 14 routes on which you can get to almost all sights of the city, and even to get to the town of Hoi an. The buses are mostly new and almost always empty. Run on time, but not always exactly follow it. Very old bus I go on route 1 in Hoi an.
Given the size of the city, the length of some bus routes is very large, and some are even out of town. To deal immediately with the stops and the scheme of movement of tourists is difficult, and to ask the local help is useless because they almost never use buses and nothing about them do not know. To make it easier, better install on the smartphone or tablet the official app DanaBus. It is possible to create routes, view them on the map and find the nearest stop. There is also information about the cost and schedule. Switch to English.
Equipped bus stops very little, often waiting areas marked with only a sign on the pole. Locate the nearest best also using the app DanaBus.

In General, the problems with using buses in da Nang, tourists not occur, with the exception of one route - No. 1. This is the most popular tourist bus, which can be reached from the bus station or from the center of da Nang in the town of Hoi an. But on this route the aliens are constantly deceived with the cost of tickets, demanding to pay 50 000 – 100 000 dongs, instead of the 17 000 (47.12 rubles). Therefore, if you travel do not give into the hands of the conductor of a large bill, the change will not get. Let's just put sum, and all his objections do not pay attention. Sometimes they need to pay for baggage, but in this case do not give more than 17 000 for the Luggage. In addition, the price at 17 000 valid for travel on the entire route from the bus station, da Nang to Hoi an, and more short trips around town or to the Marble mountains are paid at other rates of 5000 dongs. These rates are indicated on the plate near the front door outside the bus.
