Take The Train
The first way you can consider is to take the train. Da Nang-to-Hue is a regular route on the Vietnam train schedule, so it is almost available every day. Besides, the train ticket is cheap. You can choose a soft seat or a bed with an air-conditioner.
Taking the train from Da Nang to Hue is an interesting experience. When the train crosses Hai Van pass, you can contemplate the breathtaking view of the mountains and the sea.
To buy the train ticket, you can go to the Da Nang Railway Station on 791 Hai Phong Str, Thanh Khe District. Or, you can book the ticket via the official website of Vietnam Railways. Don’t forget to print or show your e-ticket when boarding the train at Da Nang Railway Station.
The next common way to get from Da Nang to Hue is to take the bus/van/limousine. This is also a convenient and cheap way to choose. It takes the same amount of time or a little longer when compared to the train.
Several bus companies providing good services are The Sinh Tourist, Hanh Cafe, and Hoi An Express. You can also book the bus ticket through VM Travel . I recommend you save the bus company phone number to contact if necessary.
If you book the ticket online, do not forget to print or carry it on your mobile phone because you will need to present it before boarding the bus.
By Private Car
For those who prefer having privacy or traveling in a big group, I highly recommend booking a private car or taxi. This is the most comfortable and fastest way to get Hue from Da Nang. Plus, you can also request to stop at several tourist attractions on the way.
However, it is also the most costly choice. So if you travel solo or small group, you may need to think twice before booking a private car. You can consider booking the private taxi on VM Car.
Spice Your Journey Up By Riding A Motorbike
The last option I want to introduce to you is riding a motorbike. Da Nang-to-Hue is the ideal route for those loving adventurous travel. It is the best choice if you want to feel the wind and enjoy the scenery as much as you can.
Riding a motorbike crossing Hai Van pass is an awesome experience, but it can be a bit dangerous so make sure you can ride a motorbike well. Besides, do not ride your International Driving Permit.
You can rent motorbikes at some motorbike rental shops in Da Nang or book via VM Travel
