Hoi An Shuttle Bus Adds Even More Magic to Hoi An

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.

Hoi An Shuttle bus provides a taxi and bus service around Hoi an as well as tours.

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.

THE COUNTRYSIDE TOUR (1 HOUR): A REVIEW

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.  At 200,000 vnd for a 6- seater bus and driver this has to be the cheapest Hoi An tour around.

These include a further roll out of air-conditioned buses, a booking and tracking system that allows customers to purchase daily, weekly and monthly tickets as well being able to monitor their journey through a mobile app and plan their own itinerary tour.

    You say here that the price for the hopon hopofff bus only 20,000 dong. Went today to the An Bang stop at 11.20 am to check it out. You had 3 shuttles and each driver gave a different price for 2 people for the 10 minute ride to Hoi An.
    : 120,000, 150,000 and 200,00. That is an amazing scam even for Vietnam! Can you give us a guaranteed reasonable price to go to Hoi An on Tuesday please? There is almost no inflation in Vietnam. Thanks, Ana
