Hoi An Pharmacies

Over-the-counter medication, including antibiotics, are readily available in pharmacies all around Vietnam. Often they are cheaper. Lesser known prescription drugs may be stocked by pharmacies in Da Nang.

Some pharmacists overcharge.  If it feels like they are asking an exorbitant price go elsewhere (and if you have the time, let Hoi An Now know).

The name for a chemist in Vietnam is ‘NhaThuoc’ (Nyah Too-uk).

Always check the expiry date. While we have heard that some pharmacists sell counterfeit drugs, we have never experienced this.

Below are recommended chemists.  Send us feedback if you have any issues.

    Thanks for the article, very useful.

    Do you have contact email addresses for any of these pharmacies? I would like to find out whether they stock the insulin I require.


    Hi Cam, we found two pharmacies that can operate by email. The first huyhoangpharma@yahoo.com claims that they always stock insulin. The second hunngxuantravel@gmail.com say they will get it in for you if you give them notice. We definitely recommend that you contact them directly as well to make sure.
