How long does it take to get to Cu Lao Cham?

To move to Cu Lao Cham, you can choose from two options. It is moving from Da Nang or Hoi An.

When moving from Da Nang: Da Nang city is about 42km from Cu Lao Cham including land and sea. In which road covers about 27km and sea travel about 15km.

When moving from Hoi An: From Hoi An, you will choose a vehicle from Cua Dai port to move to the island. The distance from the old town to the port is about 10km, and from the port to the island is about 15km. Therefore, if you start from Hoi An, it will take about 25km to move.

How to move from Da Nang (Hoi An) to Cu Lao Cham?

With two suggested starting points, in any case you have to go to one of two wharfs, that is Hoi An wharf and Cua Dai wharf. Wooden and canoe trains depart from here.

There are two options for you to choose from:

  • Canoeing to Cu Lao Cham island

If you choose a canoe to go to the island, it will save time, about 20 minutes you will have arrived. This time is very quick if you move from both Hoi An wharf or Cua Dai wharf. When traveling by canoe, you have to park your motorbike and car at the wharf and only bring your luggage or personal belongings to the island. If you are still considering seasickness, you should also prepare anti-emetics when you go.


However, there is a note that renting a private canoe to move is very expensive. Unless you go with a large number of 15-20 people, you can rent a private canoe. So if you want to save more money, you have to join groups while traveling. The secret here is that you should arrive at the wharf at crowded times.

Usually, the canoes often leave the wharf around 8-9 am. During this time, the number of people going is not very large, so it is difficult for you to find people to join the group. Based on that you can arrange your trip reasonably. The best time to start is in the morning.

If you want to buy a canoe ticket, you can go directly to the wharf to buy it. If you want to buy a 2-way ticket for a day, the ticket price is about 300,000 VND/2 way/person. If you choose a one-way ticket, the fare is about 200,000 VND/way and about 150,000 VND/way back.

  • Take a boat to Cu Lao Cham island (market boat)

This is the transportation option chosen by many young people. That’s because the ticket price is quite cheap, only about 50,000 VND / person, if you bring a motorbike, it is about 80,000 VND / person. However, if you choose this means of transport, you need to absolutely pay attention to the travel time of the boat. Because the boat goes very punctually, each berth has only 1 trip and 1 return trip per day. Departure time from Hoi An is about 7:30 am, from Cua Dai wharf is about 8:30 am. To be sure of the time, you should go early or ask the boat owner in advance.

Another note when traveling by market boat. It’s a very slow boat, so it’s easy to get seasick. Therefore, you should keep your motion sickness medicine and antiemetic medicine handy.
