About Hanoi to Hoi An Bus

There are 3 options for the bus from Hanoi to Hoi An that you can consider: the regular seat bus, traditional sleeper bus, and cabin sleeper bus. Likely, the sleeper buses are a bit more comfortable than regular buses. Most of them have inclined, allocated seats or padded flatbeds, Wi-Fi, TV, and charging outlets. 

Until now, there are only a few seat buses left operating on this route. The nearly 800 km distance is too long to sit a small seat on a narrow bus. So nearly all bus companies change the vehicle into sleeper buses to meet the demand of travelers.

Local tips to transfer from Hanoi to Hoi An by bus

  • Because it’s a long journey, a cabin sleeper bus is recommended. You can not only sleep comfortably but also get good privacy.
  • Don’t forget to prepare a lot of snacks because you need to eat when you are hungry, and you need to eat when you are bored either. 
  • Ask if the bus is equipped with charging ports or not in advance. If they have, that’s good but if they don’t, remember to fully charge all your electric stuff before getting on board. 
  • On every stop-over, get out of the bus and try as many local cuisines as you want, these foods are so mouth-watering.
  • Always keep the most important personal documents with you, make some copies of these documents and divide money into many pockets then hide them in different places. No one wants a bad situation, but if it happens, you already have your backup.

The bus is not the best transportation to go from Hanoi to Hoian, but it is one of the cheapest, and easy to book at the last minute. Even though it takes quite a long time, the bus is a fine choice to consider traveling.

If you are looking for another transfer type, you can consider traveling by train from Hanoi to Hoi An or booking Vietnam tours which already included flight/ car transfer.
