HOI AN TO DALAT BY MOTORBIKE
There is many ways to travel from Hoi An to Nha Trang. You can go by bus, plane or private car.
My recommendation is to go from Hoi An to Dalat by motorbike. That is the best way to explore this beautiful country.
The private car is of cause expensive and it take long time. The bus takes long time too, and the service is not always so good.
Thats why we suggest…..
