4. Travel by MOTORBIKE from Da Nang to Hue

A very popular transport option to Hue from the city of Da Nang for foreign tourists is also a trip on a motorbike or scooter. However, this method has its advantages and disadvantages. A disadvantage may be the fact that you must have an International Driving Permit with a valid license for the motorcycle you wish to drive.

It is necessary to drive a motorcycle in Vietnam. You should also have some experience driving motorbikes elsewhere in Asia, as the traffic in Vietnam can also be a bit unusual for foreign tourists. Drivers often do not follow traffic regulations, and sometimes there is more traffic on the roads, especially in city centers.

On the other hand, a motorbike will give you freedom of movement and you can go to places you normally can’t get to by bus, or you can stop wherever you want. And, for example, there will be several such options in the Hai Van pass, because many travelers pass the pass on a motorcycle just to see something and be able to stop.
