Overview

The famous Hai Van Pass is undeniably Vietnam’s most beautiful coastal road that was dubbed ‘a deserted ribbon of perfection’ by Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson and named as one of the ‘world’s great scenic drives’ by The Guardian. Jungle-clad on one side and views of deserted golden beaches on the other, you simply can’t miss soaking up this scenery!

One of the absolute best ways to travel the Hai Van Pass is by open-top jeep. Climb in the back for a day that’s jam-packed with adventure! This unique tour will take you off the beaten track to little-known spots along the pass. Visit gorgeous beaches and lagoons, ancient temples, waterfalls, fishing villages and even an unusual Vietnamese cemetery! The trip includes a seaside lunch on one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam, all transport, luggage transfer, entrance fees and an English-speaking guide. What are you waiting for?


Itinerary

⬅️ ➡️ This tour can be done in two directions: You can choose to start from Hue to Hoi An or vice versa. You can also start / finish the tour in Danang. Please let us know your pick-up / drop-off address when booking.

  • 9:00 AM – 10:00AM: You’ll drive away from the hustle and bustle of Hue City and start to pass by local villages. You’ll drive through luscious green rice fields, glimpse traditional Vietnamese houses, local schools and “mushroom” villages. You will then make your first stop at the unusual An Bang Cemetery, also known as ‘Ghost City’, to admire the elaborately built tombs of Vietnamese people.
  • 10:00 AM –10:30 AM: You will drive up to Tu Hien Bridge and stop here to admire the scenery and take some photos.
  • 10:30 AM–12:00 PM: Your jeep will take you to the hidden gem of  Suoi Mo Waterfall and along the way, you will cross the majestic Lap An lagoon, which is considered one of the most beautiful viewpoints in all of Vietnam.
  • 12:00 PM – 1:15 PM: You will keep driving to Lang Co Bay, which is known as the 3rd bay of Vietnam (after Ha Long and Nha Trang) and named in the list of 30 most beautiful bays in the world. You’ll experience the life of the fishing village and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Bach Ha National Park in the distance. The group will stop for lunch at a local seafood restaurant there.
  • 1:15 PM –1:45 PM: You will continue driving up to the Hai Van Pass. As you ascend through the clouds, you’ll realise why the pass is named ‘Ocean Clouds Pass’ in Vietnamese. With jungle and mountains on one side and the sea views on the other, the scene is magical and like something out of a fairy tale.
  • 1:45 PM – 2:15 PM: You will stop for a quick a rest in Turtle Stone Coffee at the very top of the Hai Van Pass and enjoy the panoramic view of Da Nang City below.
  • 2:15 PM â€“ 3:45 PM: On the way down the pass you will drive through endless green rice fields before stopping at Bang An Tower – a 1000-year-old temple where you will learn more about Champa culture and the Hindu Religion from your Vietnamese guide.
  • 3:45 PM â€“ 4:30 PM: The day is coming to a close and you will approach the beautiful Hoi An Old Town. You’ll be dropped off by jeep at your accommodation where the tour ends.

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region!

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  1. Joe and Fran

    We had the best day doing the jeep tour from Hue to Hoi A with our amazing guide, Mr Music! He was very knowledgeable of the route and really looked after us! We had some great stops along the way, swam in a private waterfall and had lunch on the beach! We would thoroughly recommend this transfer and way to travel the Hai Van Pass!

  2. John Rayner

    Fabulous way to travel from Hue to Hoi An Excellent service from the tour company and drivers. Tony and Nguyen were excellent tour guides, friendly and they both looked after us.
    The weather was not kind too us, however Tony and Nguyen provided us with waterproofs and strapped our cases on and we were off. It is a must way to transfer from Hue to Hoi An or via Versa. The Hoi van pass is beautiful, you have regular stops for photos, food and drinks. The guides really do look after you and are very friendly. You also visit Marble mountain which is Beautiful. Thank you for making wonderful memories.
