Updated Nov13.


By Taxi:
General: Taxis are readily available outside the terminal. There is an official list of taxi prices posted at the airport. To Danang city center ~US$ 3-7/VDN 70 000 - 150 000. To Hoi An VND 400 000-500 000/US$20-25. It is possible to agree a fixed rate price even though the taxi may still run its meter. Pay only the pre-agreed price. A return to Danang is usually cheaper, and costs around VND 350,000 - 400,000 (arrange this through any of the many small tour agencies in Hoi An).
Taxi Companies: From A Traveller Aug13: A good tip is to arrange transfer with your hotel, or use one of two taxi companies: MaiLinh www.mailinh.vn and Vinasun www.vinasuntaxi.com. The websites are in Vietnamese however the images of the taxi colors will be useful. Beware that there are ripoffs ("Vinasum", Vinasan", "MaiLing", etc etc). Using other taxis offers very high possibility of being ripped off and some have metered rates up to 3 times the standard rate. Same advice about MaiLInh and Vinasun applies to all other cities in Vietnam - these companies are present almost everywhere in Vietnam.

Rental Cars: Motorbike rental, Tel: 897-230.

Notes from a Traveller January 2010: There is no longer a booth inside the airport selling fixed-price taxi tickets to town. We went to the curb (it was 2300 local and we figured the bus would be sketchy then) and bargained a taxi down from US $20 to town to $8, but be prepared to do a bit of bargaining!

By Bus:

- Saigon Bus #152 to the city: Public Bus #152 runs from the airport domestic terminal to the City centre (Ben Thanh Market is final destination). Cost: VND 3000.

This is still less than US $0.35, but it’s worth being aware of this in case people are setting aside the cash to get to the airport at the end of a trip.
