Best way to get to Da Lat from Da Nang, Vietnam

  • Da Lat is 460km south of Da Nang
  • Right now the only way to travel between Da Lat and Da Nang is by air. There is no train, bus, or van options available
  • But the good news is, flight is direct and is very cheap, just $35 USD each way ($70USD roundtrip)
  • Flight time is a only 70 minutes
  • I believe right now the only airline that flies direct on this route is Vietnam Airlines, which is an ok airline in my opinion. Since they're the only airline, I suggest booking directly with them to get the cheapest fare. Of course, you should use metasearch engines like Skyscanner first to see if other low cost airlines have started serving this route. (On other routes I've flown, Vietjet and Jetstar — which are the two low cost airlines in Vietnam — almost always work out to be cheaper than Vietnam Airlines)
  • Getting to and from the airports:
  • Getting to the Da Nang airport is best done by taxi, costing less than $5USD. Here are some more details
  • Getting from Da Lat airport to the city is also best done by taxi, costing around $11 USD. Here are more details
  • If you don't want to fly, the only alternative will be to travel to Ho Chi Minh City first then get on a bus or van to Da Lat. HCMC is a huge hub so there will be a multitude of ways by land to get to it, including by bus and trains from all over Vietnam. Once you're in HCMC, I've written a more details brief about how you can get to Da Lat by coach bus or luxury van, both options are quite cheap
