Buses leave from the local bus station, which is located near the intercity bus station of da Nang. They pass through the streets of da Nang, Dien Bien Phu, Hung Vuong, Ong Ich Khiem, Nguyen Thi Minh Khai (see map of da Nang) and catch them easier on these streets than to get to the station. Interactive map of da Nang red line we marked the route from the airport to the nearest place where the bus.

The fare for a local is 18 000VND (currency of Vietnam). But the conductors of tourists ripped off as sticky, and require 50 000 and more, of course, the difference of folding in his pocket. We recommend sticking to the tourist solidarity and not to allow the conductors as much as they require, and to argue and to bargain with them. The authors were able to pass on this bus even at the state price after persistent standing his ground.

Hoi an is a small town, and the bulk of it, unless you live somewhere in the suburbs, you will be able to explore on foot. All that is needed for this card (pick up at the hotel reception or print on the computer), the ability to focus and ability to communicate with locals at least in sign language if you get lost. The only case when you may need to use taxi or motorcycle taxi to move around the city to get to the beach as it is located a few kilometers from the city. Public transport in the city.
To move around the city on foot at any time of the day safely (Hoian is one of the safest cities in Vietnam).
In the evening some of the streets near the river are marked with a sign "Walking street" (pedestrian street) and the entrance to them is strictly forbidden, even on bicycles and even tourists. You simply may not be allowed in such a zone, even if you maintain the bike and not ride it.
Bikes are also a great way of moving around Hoi an. By bike you can reach the beach ride in the evening on busy streets or drive to a favorite café for dinner. Some hotels offer free bikes for their customers (though the quality of such bikes sometimes leaves much to be desired), some can be rented for a nominal fee (10,000 VND (Vietnam currency) per day) or advise rental nearby. Parking bikes will be no problems if you stay in a cafe or go to the small shop: the owners quickly organize your transportation and Parking will be taking care of him, if only you have stayed. The beaches with the bikes allowed, so all the beaches are equipped paid Parking (the price is set arbitrarily by the owners, in the medium to 30,000 VND). Parking a bike will cost you a bit more. Passages and driveways to the coast almost everywhere densely built hotels or homes. But, if you drive a little away from the main roads, you can find passages and entrances directly on the beach and pay nothing.
Rent a motorbike (scooter) is also a good option, but be careful and first look at the chaotic traffic on the roads, especially in the evenings. In General, the movement in the town is fairly quiet, but during periods of holidays or in the evenings during rush hour on the road leaves a large number of cyclists and motorcyclists. Keep in mind that many roads in Hoi an have one-way traffic and moving you right after the next intersection can be on the opposite line. The cost of renting a scooter (motorcycle) – from 4 dollars per day. To find a rental car in Hoi an can be everywhere: in hotels, tourist agencies, car rental office to the streets.
To rent a boat. Another interesting way to navigate Hoi an, although it is rather "attraction", not a real way of transportation is to rent a boat. On the waterfront of Hoi An river flowing through the city, you can rent a boat or hire her for a walk. To find the boat will not take long.

So we have the same on the website and written - 18000 VND route No. 1 is. And do not bother you much. A cheap price, so if you would rip off, do not worry. Just try to give large bills, or they will quickly in the pocket of the conductor will be, and you without change. If two of us go, give 50 000 for two, and that's enough. If the conductor is to ask, can you give ten more, or send it. But if you give 100 000 for two people or 50,000 for one,there is a high likelihood of passing not get. By the way, neither in Saigon nor Hanoi never more price tag is not stripped. ...
