Hi, It is very easy to catch a taxi. Just walk outside the terminal and go to the left. You will see lots of cabs and it is actually very orderly. There is a flat rate of about $15.00 to Hoi An. The price has changed recently, always up. It makes things easier if you have the hotel info printed out for the driver. Hope you enjoy.

Elisa, maybe get your hotel to organise a pick up, saves having to deal with the taxi drivers who can be difficult. If you run the gauntlet of the taxi drivers, negotiate the fare first, we paid $12.00.

i agree with millsie- we went outside to catch a taxi- arranged a price but still had a fight on our hands (re the price) once we arrived at Ha-An.

It is very easy to catch a taxi - we were there last week - there is a information desk before you leave the airconditioning in the airport - go over there and tell them what you require and the lady will write on a official piece of paper the amount to pay. We have 3 kids, so required a 7 seater and the cost was 30000 dong (I think). We made sure the driver understood that was all we were paying, and he delivered us to our hotel in HoiAn for that exact fee! DO NOT let them insist on "meter taxi" as they will take you for a lot of extra k's ....

I was at Danang airport going to Palm Garden hotel in June. I walked to the information desk where I paid $200k VND (US $13) for a 7 seater taxi. A lady gave me a ticket and took me with her to the taxi driver.

Hi guys,

I am also going to Hoi An, and staying at Ha An - I've just been emailing them and they tell me that a pick up arranged from their hotel will cost me $20USD which i think is a rip off - so i'll be organising my own taxi once i get out of the airport.

I think "rip off" is a little harsh- it's about a one hour trip. How far would you get in a taxi in Sydney for $US 20?

Yes u're right 'rip off' is a little harsh. It's just that i've been reading on the reviews that heaps of ppl manage to negotiate to go to Hoi An for $8USD, and they all say that hotels usually charge you a lot more to organise it for you. That being said it does take the stress out of finding a taxi when you get to Danang, esp if you're getting there at odd hours of the morning or night.

Well I got quoted $31USD to Danang to the Palm garden - so I will definitely be catching a taxi from the airport.

Taxi prices are going up by the day. The cheapest you will get now is about 20usd rising to 30usd for a meter taxi. Inflation is very high here at the moment . The larger 4 and 5 star hotels do add on a bit for the service. Forget about the 8usd days !
