Danang train station to Hoi An

Posted by TerroirTravel on 16/2/2014 at 23:22

Hi, This seems to be a common trip, but I couldn't find any recent posts. I'm taking the train from Nha Trang to Danang, and would like to catch a bus down to Hoi An. I'm on the SE22, that gets to Danang around 7:00 am. I see a note on the Transport link to catch the bus on Le Duan street near the crossroads with the street opposite the train station (looks like that's Hoang Hoa Tram on my map). That was a 3 year old comment- is this still the case? Any other tips happily appreciated, thanks ...

Last year I visited Halong Bay and stayed few nights in Cat Ba. While it felt like a bit more independent experience if compared to the fully organised by a tour operator, the ...
