    So regarding the local bus. Update for 11 / 2019.

    The official price is printed on the bus. It is 18.000 ppDong. However the greedy cheating Bus Ladies will try to rip you off. We payed 30.000 each onthe way there. On the way back the price had changed to 40.000. the price is printed on the bus. They just want to extort some money for personal profit. Should be arrested. On getting off the bus the cheating bus lady tried to hide the price sticker on the bus under a towel. Such a cheat. Take a picture of the price sticker on the bus before you get on and show it to the cheating lady. Only pay for the correct amount. Such behaviour is what gives Vietnam a bad name. Just appalling.


    Hi Paul, it does give Vietnam a bad name – sadly. We have passed this information on to the Quang Nam Tourism Department who have sent it to their superiors. You make an excellent point about taking a picture of the price sticker (if it’s possible). Another idea is to take a picture of the bus driver and their bus license plate. We have found this action usually frightens them into behaving properly. If people have time, they should send it to us. We can process it to the relevant Hoi An government department. We’ll update you with any feedback from the Tourism Department but meanwhile, thank you for taking the time to write this. It’s really helpful to others to know this can happen and how to deal with it.


    Hi there guys, before taking the bus to Da Nang I’ve read your post here, to prepare myself. I am traveling with my boyfriend, we are backpackers, so we do have a big lugage to carry on :). We have arrived at the Hoi An Bus Station and went to the ticket office. An old guy there had a google translated version on his phone with all the infos and it was written: the price is 20k Dong pp, with luggage. On the wall and everywhere we saw 17K pp, we took a picture. We got on the bus and the lady there didnt want to tell us how much was the ticket, she just insisted we get inside. After, she told us is 50K pp, and then I have started arguing about it. After some minutes of ‘negotiating’ and standing in that wiggly bus, she asked for 25k pp. I wanted to get off the bus but she stoped me several times. I didnt want to pay. It’s not about the price difference is about the principle of scamming. She told us.. “it’s cheap for you, 2 dollars’. I couldn’t believe.. We’re in Vietnam for one month and people here are just amazing, but this situation changed it a bit. We’ve recorded everything.. After I told her I will send the video to the Tourism Department she changed a bit. In the end, she accepted 20k pp. No hello, goodbye or eye contact when we left the bus even though we both thanked for the trip :D. Your post helped us and informed us, thank you!


    Thank you Nicole. Yes, this is an ongoing problem and the tourism officials and the government really should do something about this. It is really hurting tourism here and blackening Vietnam’s name when so much else is really great. Over these petty scams here and there the country is losing millions in lost return visits. Quite apart from the principle of the thing they are shooting themselves in the foot by not attending to these issues. When these things happen people just don’t want to come back.


    This scam even in local busses is exactly the reason that changed our feeling for Vietnam. It s not about the money. It s about good or bad feeling and when I decide where I want to go for n holiday I don’t decide „ let s go somewhere we’re I feel bad“
    Therefore we decided that this is our last trip to Vietnam. I’m so sorry for that. But it s not only about us. People talk to each other and a lot of people decide to go to other countries if they hear about that. It s a pitty for all that people doing a great and honest job.

    Tomorrow we arrive in Da Nang and try this local bus. Maybe we will be surprised but sadly I know we will not. We will tell you.


    Hi Bjorn, We know how you feel and it’s a great shame that this petty theft is having such a detrimental impact on visitors. We live here because we love it and the pluses far outwiegh the minuses. We hope that’ll be your experience this time too.
