When we inquired, there were only two convenient trains – the 8:02 (arrives 10:31) and the 10:50 (arrives 13:12). As the train comes from Hanoi, which is over 650 km away, you can expect it to be a little late. Ours was around 30 minutes late. When we arrived in Hue from Hanoi a few days earlier, it was about an hour late.

When you get to Danang (the next stop), there’ll be plenty of metered taxis directly outside the station. Just tell the driver you’re going to Hoi An, and it will be about a 30-minute journey. It might be possible to negotiate a fixed fare, but we used the meter. Total cost was VND 420,000 ($20, £13). If you prefer to take a bus, the cost is around $3.
