Da Nang Transports

Da Nang has excellent transport links and acts as the main travel hub for Central Vietnam, with a modern airport, train links to both the north and south, and bus routes going throughout Vietnam.

Motorbikes

The motorbike is the go to method of transportation in Vietnam, weaving through the streets day and night. Renting a motorbike is a quick and easy process widely available throughout the city.

Motorbikes for sale make for a better deal for long term visitors and are easy to find through Internet listings and local dealers for around 4-5 million dong (200 dollars).

Motorbike Safety

At first glance Vietnamese driving can look like complete chaos. Motorbikes scattered on the road broken by the odd car all moving independent of road markings or signs. There is a method to the madness though.

In Vietnam, the person turning has the right of way and those coming straight on are expected to slow and allow them to turn. Obviously don’t turn suddenly into crowded oncoming traffic, but if you wait for an empty road to turn, you’ll be waiting for a while. Always pass on the left rather than the right. When navigating traffic circles honk to show you’re continuing through and signal with your hand. Always wear a helmet or risk getting a fine from police.

A fair price is between VND 100,000 and 150,000 per day.

Longer renters (2 weeks to a month) usually get some kind of deal from the rental shop. Some providers will ask for a deposit and others a passport. For stays longer than a month it’s cheaper to buy a bike and sell it at the end of the trip.

Motorbike Taxis

Independent motorbike taxis (xe om) operate all over the city. These typically older Vietnamese men will offer to drive visitors wherever they like or, in some cases, to do errands in exchange for payment.

These guys are all independent operators, so be sure to agree on a price before stepping on the bike. A ride of 5km should cost around VND 30,000- 40,000
