Travel experience Cham Island – Hoi An

Cham Island is a very beautiful and famous island, now Cham Island is a tourist destination you should not miss when you are planning to travel to Da Nang – Hoi An, because it is too beautiful here, much nicer than what books often describe!

I am impressed with this place by the blue beaches, clear water, by the gentleness and simplicity of the people here. And in particular, this place is striving to become an island without plastic bags. Seeing if discovered using plastic bags on the island will be fined 500k there, so remember to bring “eco bags” here instead of plastic bags. If there are too many items, you can buy them at Cua Dai pier, they sell a lot!

Normally people often combine morning to Cham Island, afternoon to play in Hoi An always, or you go to Cham Island tour from Da Nang, Hoi An… A few who have a lot of time, they choose to go to Cham Island self-sufficient. 2 days 1 night. You can choose any way, as long as it suits your time, your desires.

Guide to Cham Island in Hoi An during the day

There are 2 options for you to choose when traveling to Cham Island – Hoi An during the day, I will guide you to understand better: Self-travel to Cham Island by motorbike or Cham Island tour and then pay guests at Hoi An.

Travel Cham Island by motorbike

Traveling to Da Nang, if you plan to go to Cham Island by motorbike, you must book a canoe ticket one day in advance for sure. Because in the summer, the number of people traveling to Cham Island is relatively large. When you go to Cham Island, you should go early, be present in Cua Dai port about 8h to make procedures with the border to Cano to the Island. Motorcycles deposited at the Port best luggage belongings should not carry much.

You must know Cano afternoon schedule to know the time you travel to the mainland and the way from Cua Dai port to Hoi An. The distance from Cua Dai port to Hoi An ancient town is approximately 7-10km. So about 16pm you were in Hoi An to visit.

Book Cham Island tour to pay guests in Hoi An

This is an experience you should learn when traveling to Cham Island. As above I pointed out, Cham Island tourist season is extremely crowded. So canoeing is very common in the summer, you should book a Cham Island tour from Da Nang and pay in Hoi An the cost you think is cheaper and more convenient than self-sufficient.

Below I will analyze the beauty of this service because I have tried to go on my own and take a tour to experience it before sharing it with everyone!

When self-sufficient by motorbike: Car rental is about 100 – 150k, petrol cost 50k, deposit about 30k. So you have lost from 200 – 230k for rented motorbike. As for the distance traveled as well as finding the way will also be very difficult when not understanding the distance traveled.

Not to mention when you go to Hoi An late at night, you will have to drive in the dark back to Da Nang very tired during the day. As for the canoe to the port, then you have to go to Hoi An during the day is considered very sad because Old Quarter is shimmering at night. That canoe ticket package also cost 500k.

You note that renting a canoe is very high price, so unless you follow a group of more than 15-20 people can actively rent a canoe, rather than a few people, will have to join a group to save. Therefore, you should come to Cua Dai wharf (Hoi An) in the crowded time.

Departure time of the largest canoes is usually from 8 am to 9 am because this time many tourists travel, easy to join. At 9am, few people go, they won’t go anywhere. If you plan to go to Cham Island in the afternoon, then the luck will be good, at this time few people travel Cham Island in the afternoon.

Fortunately, meet the travel company they go, cano lack of people, you can join the group okay. It is best not to go to Cham Island island in the afternoon!

Take the Cham Island tour and return guests in Hoi An: This is a very convenient service you do not have to worry. I share with you this plan of travel because recently, I myself have personally tried the Cham Island island tour daily, seeing it has quite a lot of advantages that you should consider.

Regarding the convenience, do not say, there is a shuttle bus to the hotel in Da Nang, with a guide for detailed instructions, arrangements, take care of everything, just follow their instructions.

The meal on this tour is very delicious, my team went to eat all the birth, always leave nothing .hi. That turned out to be cheaper than self-sufficient quite a lot, that time I ordered for 520k / person.

At the end of the tour to Cua Dai port, you tell the tour guide to return you at the ancient town of Hoi An and then when you return to Da Nang, you just need to call the car with 4 seats to return one way.

At that time, it only takes about 200 – 250k for the afternoon to return to Da Nang. Being tired and safe, I have advised a lot of people on this issue and everyone is very OK. If you do not know how to book a 4-seater car, please ask Mr Khanh 0905 296 869 for assistance. Mr. Khanh is also the tour leader of Da Nang, a company he has experienced.
