Hoi An Ancient town is located in Viet Nam’s central Quang Nam Province, on the north bank near the mouth of the Thu Bon River. It is recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Hoi An is attracting tourists not only domestically but also abroad. You can see: the experience of Grez Walker to Hoi An by Private Car

Tourists going to Hoi An not only because of its ancient beauty and traditional architecture but also because of its great food, fun shopping, skilled tailors, friendly people and cozy atmosphere – all key characteristics that draw people to this picturesque town. Nowadays, many bars, hotels, and resorts have been constructed both in Hội An and the surrounding area to serve the visitors.

Hoi An airport – Yes or No?

If you are planning to take a trip to Hoi An, and you are finding the easiest way to go to this beautiful town, I’m sure that you will think about travelling by plane first. And then you will search for Hoi An airport on the internet and as a result, you will see my article.
Surprise! Welcome to my article, but I have to tell you that there is no airport in Hoi An. Ancient and peaceful, Hoi An is one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam that caters to travelers of all tastes and across the continents. So, why it doesn’t have any airports, even a train station?.

There is no Hoi An Airport

So, How to get to Hoi An then?

Cuz there is no Hoi An Airport, Two great things about Hoi An’s Old Town are that it is small enough to get around in on foot and the traffic in Hoi An is not as heavy as in bigger cities. Some of the streets only allow bike and motorbike traffic and some are pedestrian only. Speaking to this, I believe that you can understand how small Hoi An is and why they cannot build an airport in such a small town.

Another reason for this, I think that if a modern airport appears in the town, Hoi an cannot keep its name as an ancient town any more.

And, How to travel to Hoi An?

There is an international airport in Da nang city, which is only about 40 km from Hoi An. Therefore, many people think that it is Hoi An airport. In fact, it is Da nang international airport.

Da Nang International Airport is located in Da Nang, the largest city in central Vietnam. It is the third international airport in the country, besides Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi) and Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh City), and is an important gateway to access central Vietnam.

If you want to go to Hoi an from your country or other parts of Vietnam, you can book a flight ticket to Da nang airport, then book another car from Da nang airport to Hoi An. You can see: Price from Da Nang to Hoi An by Private Car

It takes about 1 hour to transfer from Da nang to Hoi an by car. You can also easily book a car from the airport with the price from 15$ to 20$ for a car 4 seats.

Beside that, you can fly to Hue Airport Vietnam, relax here 1 or 2 days, then book a private car from Hue to Hoi An. Not much expensive, but really beautiful way.

My article mainly aims to show you that though Hoi an doesn’t have airport, you can still easily get to Hoi An via Da nang airport. So, do not hesitate to make a plan for your trip to Hoi an now. It is waiting for you to discover.
