Plane, train and open bus are your options. For train, you can see my experience with Livitrans (Hanoi- Da Nang): http://www.hanoi-airport-transfers.com/2011_11_01_archive.html Fare: about $33 for a one-way trip from Hanoi to Hoian. After reaching Danang you can get a taxi to Hoi An for 300,000-450,000 VND dong depending on your bargaining skills :). Or you can arrange an airport transfer in advance. www.yourlocalbooking.com offers private transfer from Da Nang airport to Hoi An for 16 USD. For Open bus: if you are longer than 5 foot and weigh more than 40kg its a rough night. Just to give you an idea, there are about 48 beds in a normal size bus so its a really tight fit, the beds only recline half way, you can’t sit up in the beds. Sinh cafe runs sleeper buses between Hanoi and Hoi An. Book online at www.yourlocalbooking.com or you can book when you arrive Hanoi about 8 years ago
Hi, you can download ho chi minh local guide at: http://www.slideshare.net/yourlocalbooking/ho-chi-minh-local-guide I found many food restaurants or street food in this guide. Don't forget to try Pho Quynh ( 323 Pham Ngu Lao, District 1) Open 24 hours. This is local food, local shop. But they do have English menu. The price is listed. Don't worry. This is my Favorited shop when i was in Sai Gon Pho Bo Tai (Beef noodle soup) – 40,000 Dong (2 USD) Banh Mi Bo Kho – 40,000 Dong Hot Coffee with Milk – 12,000 Dong Don't miss Mekong Delta Tour. If you have time, book 2 days tour. If you have limit time, you can book a join tour at www.yourlocalbooking.com (Join tour: 25 USD/ 1 pax). They are great! about 8 years ago
