Every 30 minutes, the yellow bus #1 travels between Hoi An and Danang, passing Marble Mountains en route. The trip takes between 45 and 60 minutes and costs around 20,000 VND. It departs near the roundabout where Dien Bien Ph and Nguyen Tri Phurong meet. Tour companies like Hanh Café and Sinh Café offer long-distance bus service to/from northern and southern provinces.
Danang Central Bus Station (201 Ton Duc Thang, 2½ km (1½ miles) north of junction with Hwy 1A, Danang. 236/376–7679.)
Hanh Café. A cheap and safe bet for organizing onward travel from Hoi An, this cafe has helpful staff who speak English. Unlike many bus companies, this fleet of air-conditioned mini-buses and sleeper buses are well maintained. Hotel pick-up and drop off can be arranged and will generally work out to be far cheaper than organizing a taxi or xe om (motorbike taxi) at either end. 2 Thai Phien St., Hoi An. 235/386–4609. hanhcafe.vn.
Sinh Café. One of the longest-running tourist bus services in Hoi An, offering twice-daily services south to Nha Trang or north to Hue, this is a great option if you want to take in a few popular attractions en route to break up the journey. However, it's worth bearing in mind these stops are arranged around whichever place pays the most commission. Sinh Café also provides the option of a multistop open ticket for travel throughout the country. 587 Hai Ba Trung St., Hoi An. 235/386–3948. www.sinhcafe.com.
