Hoi An Shuttle Bus

Hoi An Guide | Transport and Driving Licenses

Updated July 2022

As if Hoi An with its buttercup ancient buildings and lantern-lit streets didn’t have fantasy and magic enough, Hoi An Shuttle Bus recently emerged out of nowhere as yet another enchanting touch.

Matching the characteristics and hues of Hoi An Old Town, these electric, amber-colored, vintage-themed buses not only provide a cheap and effective way to get around, they are part of a push to make Hoi An transport more environmentally-friendly and pedestrian-safe.

It’s great fun to hop on, hop off or take a tour on these cartoon-like buses with neatly capped drivers at the helm as they silently convey you around town.

Please note:
Established in July 2019 just before the onset of Covid-19, the Hoi An Shuttle Bus company is new to Hoi An and still developing its service. Therefore, please check its Facebook Page and website (see below) for last-minute updates.

The Hoi An Countryside Tour

If you’re looking for a fun way to see Hoi An then we highly recommend you do a Hoi An Shuttle Bus tour. Not only is it cheap, the customer service is impeccable. Our bus with capped driver at the helm arrived exactly on time and, as there were only three of us, there was plenty of room to spread out.

Whilst it was a set tour it was very flexible and the driver happily took detours and stopped whenever you wanted to take photos.

Our Countryside Tour took us through the Cam Thanh rice fields and surrounding villages then on to the Coconut Village and back to Cua Dai Road. It’s a fabulous tour to take if you want to soak in an authentic slice of Hoi An village life. You’ll pass water buffalos, farmers in the field, farm animals, villages, basket boats and more as well as plenty of stunning scenery.

While the driver didn’t speak great English there was enough for us to get by.
