Hue to Hoi An by private taxi is more common choice now. Because bus trip or train can’t stop at some highlights on the way such as Cau Hai Lagoon, Bach Ma National Park, Elephant Spring, Lang Co Beach, Lap An Lagoon, Hai Van Pass or Marble Mountains. Even bus or train is very budget cost. Hue to Hoi An is around 3.5 hours of driving by private car. Plus time for stop on the way totally it take around 5 – 6 hours depending on your time of visiting. From Hue to Hoi An is around 150km. Main traffic we driving is on the highway 1. Some road we driving through coastline of Da Nang beach city. We suggest time for pick up from Hue is at 8:00am and arrive in Hoi An around at 2:00pm.
What to see in the way from Hue to Hoi An?
1. Cau Hai Lagoon – Tam Giang Lagoon:
This is a fishing village typically raising oyster and shrimp. We stop here not for tasting local seafood but for opportunity taking photo.
– Entrance fee: FOC
– Estimated time for stop: 15′
2. Lang Co Beach
A quiet beach middle of Hoi An and Hue City, Lang Co Beach was voted as one of the most charming beaches in over the world. But truly, the beach is still quiet and not touristy as Cua Dai in Hoi An or My Khe beach in Da Nang as well as Nha Trang beach. Anyway it is a good place for stop in few minutes for a short break or lunch with seafood. The price for seafood is not reasonable. We don’t recommend to have lunch here. Our driver will suggest you at Be Than floating restaurant at Lap An Lagoon is more better. It is just opposite and take some minutes for transfer. Or simply just try Hue beef noodle or Pho (Ha Noi instant beef noodle) for your lunch.
3. Hai Van Pass – Cloudy Pass
Hai Van Pass is 20Km length and 500m height above the sea level. It’s the natural border between Hue and Da Nang City. US bunkers are available some on top of the pass. Do a little bit exercise by over the pass you will take panorama view of Hue part as well as Da Nang City part. There are many good cafeteria on the top of Hai Van Pass. Don’t forget to sip a hot cup of coffee here – cost for tourist 20,000vnd ~ 1usd, watching the clouds climb over the ridge and save these wonderful moments in your camera.
