2. Best time to take a Hue to Hoi An Jeep Tour

Each destination has its own time to show its charm, but if you plan your Hue to Hoi An Jeep Tour during the summer, from April to June, it will throb your heartbeat.

This time in Vietnam is almost dry season, so the weather is quite comfortable, not too hot or too cold, which is a favorable condition for tourists to enjoy their sweatless trip.

3. The detailed route of Hue to Hoi An Jeep Tour

The Jeep Tour will last 1 day for one-way or 2 days for a roundtrip. 

3.1. One-way Hue to Hoi An Jeep Tour

If you do not have much time to explore, one full day is still enough to sit on a Jeep from Hue to Hoi An, deeply enjoy the fresh breeze along the way, snap some cute photos, taste delicious food, and so on. Some sights that we can visit are Tam Giang Lagoon – Cau Hai Lagoon (Hue), Lang Co Beach, Hai Van Pass, and Marble Mountain (Hoi An)

You will start your journey in an infinitely leisurely style – with a professional tour guide who will show you the enchanting beauty of Hue from the 360-degree vantage point of an open-top jeep before heading to Tam Giang Lagoon – Cau Hai Lagoon. 

 Tam Giang Lagoon – Cau Hai Lagoon 

Stretched about 68km, Tam Giang Lagoon – Cau Hai Lagoon is mentioned repetitively in many famous poems as a symbol of Hue City and the people living and working here. To admire this place, we stop at Truong Ha Bridge and the rich ecosystem here with an intact view will catch your eye immediately. Animal lovers would love it. 

Lang Co Beach

Head west, you will pass through An Bang Cemetery which has more than 3000 graves, and then come to Lang Co Beach. Tons of tourists flock to this place each year for its scenic beauty with white sand, yellow sunshine and peaceful atmosphere. The 10 kilometers of Lang Co Beach is a part of Lang Co Town which is portrayed as a small fishing village. 

It is hard for tourists to sit comfortably under the beach umbrellas to soak up the sunshine for hours, but if possible, stroll around the fishing village and take time to talk with local people, they will tell you interesting stories about their daily lives. 

Hai Van Pass

Numerous tourists rated Hai Van Pass 5/5 for its adventurous experience. Curling around the contours of the Hai Van Pass, spectacular views across Da Nang Bay boost your mood alright. Moreover, Hai Van Pass has a dramatic switchback challenging riders a lot. So, taking a Jeep tour is of course coolest and safest. 

Marble Mountain

Arriving at Hoi An, Marble Mountain is firmly on savvy traveler’s radar. With a group of limestone hills with caves and pagodas in Ngu Hanh Son District, Marble Mountain attracts not only climbers but also those who enjoy impressive shrines and statues. 

Then, you can spend the rest of the day touring around the center of Hoi An to visit the Tan Ky Old House, eat Cao Lau – the culinary emblem of Hoi An and buy some worthwhile souvenirs for your family and friends. 

3.2. 2 days Hue to Hoi An Jeep Tour (Round trip)

In case you have more than 1 day to travel to these two beauty spots, consider a round trip for a better experience. 

Besides above mentioned places for the first day, tourists are highly recommended to enjoy the nightlife in Hoi An. This place is heaven for delicious dishes and yummy street food. Sampling street food, wandering through the lantern-lit streets, or slurping noodles on plastic stools are also unforgettable experiences. 

On the second day, when you are ready to go, our professional tour guide will take you to explore Hoi An’s surroundings and part of Danang on the way back to Hue. 

My Son Sanctuary

My Son Sanctuary is situated in Quang Nam Province, not far from Hoi An Ancient Town, so tourists can spend 2-3 hours wandering around this unique site. UNESCO has stated: “Their technological sophistication is evidence of Cham engineering skills while the elaborate iconography and symbolism of the tower-temples give insight into the content and evolution of Cham religious and political thought … The monuments are unique and without equal in Southeast Asia.” Visiting My Son Sanctuary is a chance for you to learn more about ancient Hindu temples and ruins dating back to the Champa Kingdom.

Son Tra Peninsula

In the direction of the Hai Van Pass, along the coastal road to the Man Thai Fishing Village, we will be at Son Tra Peninsula, 67 meters Lady Buddha looks down on the village and the city below. It is believed that the statue will protect inhabitants from the rage of Mother Nature. 

Bana Hills and Golden Bridge 

This time we can not miss Bana Hills and Golden Bridge, which is a European-themed recreational complex in Da Nang. Entering this destination, you have to temporarily get off your lovely Jeep, and change to the cable car to go to the mountaintop. The entrance fee is about $35 for adults and $22 for children. Based on your preferences, you can choose to visit  Golden Bridge, Linh Ung Pagoda, Le Jardin D’Amour Flower Garden, Debay Wine Cellar, Fantasy Park, Alpine Coaster, or even Golf Club, …
