Hue to Hoi An

More advice please

We will be going by train from Hanoi to Da Nang ( then taxi to Hoi An). What would be more scenic , to get off the train in Hue and go by car or stay on the train all the way? Would it be worth the hassel of changing from the train to a car ?

Thanking you in advance

Both routes are very scenic but slightly different. The train hugs the coast in the main, while the road goes more inland and higher up.

The advantage a car has is in being able to stop anywhere you like for photos, but of course this is a much more expensive option.

Hi,

From Hoi An - Hue by car is much more amazing than by train. If you take train, you have to take a taxi from Hoi An to Danang train station, then catch train to Hue. It takes time and money. However you miss chance to see the beautiful coast road as well as amazing mountain. By car, you can stop at Hai Van Pass, Lang Co Bay, beautiful Lagoon, .... The cost for a private car is from 65 - 75usd for 7 seat car.

Best Regards

We are flying Hmc to Hue, then want to get a taxi from Hue to Hoi Ann before getting the SE1 train to Nha Trang. Anyone know roughly how long a taxi will take from Hue to Hoi An please. Also if the taxi is about $65 to $75 for that journey, what does it cost to go from Hoi An to the train station in Da Nang. (sorry to hijack the thread a little).

Conciousness, I believe it is $11 - 12 US max for that taxi to Danang.

To the OP, I am hiring Hue Riders and doing the motorbike tour for $48 and then if it rains, we are taking a car instead for $65.

The train trip from Hue to Danang is one of the most scenic in the world and at $4 a ticket probably the best value. Just make sure you get a seat on the left hand/ eastern side for the views/pics. The cab these days from Danang to Hoi an will cost about 400k dong/$20 and will take about 25-30 minutes.

It is nice to drive from Hue to Hoi An. You can hire a car with a driver to pick you up from the train station. you can stop to visit Hai Van pass, Lang co bay, Marble mountains.
