Anybody who can recommend the best way to travel from HCMC to Hoi An? Train or bus/sleeping bus? How long does i take?

Elena O :

Flying is best. We were able to make reservations on Jetstar from here in the U.S. But Vietnam Air was another matter. We had to wait to get in-country before making those reservations. I loved Hoi An! Enjoy it.

Hello !
Yes, of course by flight is faster than the train. It take roughly an hour flight.
Both Vietnam Airline and Jetstar Airline could do. Jetstar is a little cheaper.
The train is over night journey with departure at 7pm SE2, and 11pm SE4, arriving Danang at 1pm and 2h15 respectively.
