DaNang -Hue -Hoi An -Nha Trang for 5 nights, advice needed.

I am planning mid-year trip with 3 good friends for 5 nights, we wish to cover most of the heritage /cultural places in Hue, Hoi An & beaches in DaNang & Nha Trang. Pls advice suggestion on whether to book a private car or engage a local agent as some places are quite distance, how far are they apart? Recommendations also needed on which homestay or private chalets that are mid-range & nice, thanks!

My suggestion would be to not attempt all this when you have only 5 days. As beaches are all over SEA (?), why not concentrate on Huê and Hoi An?

I have not been yet but am planning the same trip but taking more than double the time. There is a huge distance between Danang and Nha Trang and it is a full days drive (if you look at things along the way) between Hue and Hoi An

Hi, there is no need to stay in Danang just to catch a flight. Danang airport is only 30mins or so from most Hoi An hotels. It would be much easier to get up a little earlier and get a car to the airport than have to change hotels. All the hotels in Hoi An can arrange a car for you.

Hue is approx 100kms north of Danang. By car it takes 2.5hrs+

Hoi An is approx 25kms south of Danang. By car it takes 30mins+

It depends what you want to buy, Hoi An has all the tourist shops, Danang has the normal shops you would find in a small city.

The beach in Danang is very nice, but it is not a good reason to movie hotels. While you are in Hoi An you can take an afternoon trip to Marble mountain & China beach in Danang.

OK, thanks for your valuable advice. do you think we can manage (4 of us) to book rooms online separately, upon arrival take taxi or would need to pre-arrange car rental as i have heard mostly couldn't speak or understand English? do these places have own guide or we need to engage 1 for all places in My son, Royal tomb, Citadel, marble mountain & Phong nha cave?

advice needed, thanks.

Agreed, stick to Hoi An & Hue - easily enough there for 5 nights.

there are lots of English speaking tour guides around. In Hue the easiest would be to book a day tour that will take you to the Citadel, tombs etc. How do you plan to get to Phong Nha? You are already doing alot of travelling and its another 4hrs or so north of Hue!
