Getting around in Danang – Da Nang Transportation

Getting around in Da Nang is fairly convenient compared to other cities in Vietnam thanks to its spacious roadways, bridges, and walkways as well as budget-friendly public transportation. Known as the “tourist capital” of the South Central of Vietnam, there are plenty of sightseeing, dining, and shopping opportunities available within the city center. However, no trip to Da Nang is complete without making your way to its pristine beaches, breath-taking mountains, war memorial sites and ancient pagodas, all of which simply require the use of motorised vehicles such as motorcycle taxis, buses, taxis, Grab, and Private cars in Danang.


It is fairly easy to get an Uber or Grab car anywhere in Da Nang. This will save you a bit of money compared to a taxi. You just need to get the app ready for your smartphone before your travels. If you have a hard time using Uber or Grab, then you should resort to using taxis. From the city center or the airport, you can effortlessly catch a taxi without making prior arrangements. Every one of them is equipped with a reliable meter, and rarely a scam occurs, so expats appreciate them. Have your destination address written down to show to the driver, avoiding miscommunication. To avoid high rate taxis, you should choose a well-known taxi brand:

Mai Linh Taxi (green taxi with Mai Linh Group logo): +84 236 352 5252

Vinasun Taxi (white taxi with Vinasun Taxi logo): +84 236 368 6868

Tien Sa Taxi (yellow taxi with Taxi Tien Sa logo): +84 236 379 7979

There is a new shared taxi service, like Blablacar in Europe, that recently launched and is available in Da Nang – Dichungtaxi. Book your taxi online and the system will send the booking information to their drivers for pickup. To save money, you can share the taxi with travelers heading the same way by choosing the “share” option. If not, you can always take the “private” taxi. This new service is potentially cheaper than other options and it lowers the probability of being scammed since their pricing is fixed based on the package you select.

#2 Bus

Going from place to place in Da Nang by bus is pleasant as well. Although the bus is the cheapest travel option, it will take a bit longer and consume more effort (getting there & waiting for the bus) compared to other options. Bus services start at 5:30 in the morning and stop operating at 21:00, with high frequency.

For your convenience, you can use Google Maps and its schedule explorer to pinpoint the nearest bus stop near your stay and the arrival time of the bus. The ticket can be easily purchased on the bus but make sure to pay the right price. If you just arrive at the airport with plenty of luggage, this option will be less convenient because the nearest bus stop is around 3 kilometers away.

#3 Motorcycle

TaxiTravelling by motorcycle taxi or xe om is a good way of exploring outside the city centre on a budget. You can easily find several parked at the tourist-friendly Bach Dang and Tran Phu Street as well as popular attractions such as My Khe Beach, and Marble Mountains. Do note that the fare is based on your bargaining skills, so make sure you have finalised the price with your driver before hopping on a motorcycle taxi.

Traveling by motorbike is the most exciting option of all. It is the most popular form of transportation in Vietnam for locals and travelers alike since it allows for ultimate flexibility.

There are 2 common types of motorbikes: manual and automatic transmission. Automatic bikes are the first choice for most travelers because they are easier to handle, especially in light of the slew of new traffic laws you must obey. Just turn the throttle and it will run. However, if you also plan to visit other nice spots in the area including Son Tra Peninsula or challenge yourself to Hai Van Pass, then the manual bike will be more suitable since you can manually control the torque (force) which is essential to going uphill.

Remember to check the bike carefully: tires, horn, brakes, and lights. If you have rented a manual bike, then also check the gear pedal. Make sure all functions are in good condition and take a photo of the shop, with contact and address, or take their business card with you in case something unexpected happens on the way and you need their assistance.

You will have to leave your ID or your passport – sometimes they allow a copy – at the rental shop in order to rent a motorbike and ensure the bike’s safe return. You can either go directly to the shop to retrieve the bike or you can pay the shop extra money and they will bring it to your place.
