Frequent question: Is it better to stay in Danang or Hoi An?

When visitors choose picturesque Hoi An over vibrant Da Nang, they say it is because they find Hoi An to be a little more relaxing. Hoi An is very walkable whereas in Da Nang the areas of interest are more widespread, there’s a distinct lack of a town centre and you are required to go longer distances.

How many days do you need in Hoi An?

I recommend a minimum of three full days to explore all that Hoi An has to offer. This gives you enough time to see Hoi An and its beaches, spend an afternoon in Da Nang, and maybe take a day trip to My Son (see below).

Should I stay in Hue or Hoi An?

Hoi An during the day is very relaxed and there’s not much going on, but Hoi An has a really good cafe scene, way better than Hue. So if you just want to take it easy then relax in a cafe, maybe do a cooking class, or a bicycle trip into the nearby countryside for a bit.
