16Glad to hear it worked out for you, so how about some DETAILS on how to make the connection. Where do you go as you exit the terminal? Where do you buy bus ticket? How often do buses leave? How much? How long to Hue?
Little help to smooth the way for others that will be making this connection in the coming months.

17Sure. I didn't bother to type it out because no-one else had expressed any interest.
Picked up my luggage and headed for some desk labeled "information". Asked them how I could get to Hue. They told me taxi. I said I wanted a cheaper way. They told me I could get the local bus but that it was very far from the airport. I looked sad and said "isn't there an easy way" then they said (I have no idea why they didn't start with this) "or you could go buy a ticket there" and pointed around the corner to a desk that was about 10m away from where I was standing.
Walked to that desk. Asked for a ticket. Paid (I think it was 130,000 dong). They short changed me. I pointed that out, they gave me the correct money. The bus was supposedly leaving at 4:30pm (5 min after I bought the ticket). It left closer to 5pm but not too bad. Arrived in Hue at 7pm. To find the bus someone had to help me, it was around 200m from the place where I bought the ticket.
All very cheap and easy.
In Hue the bus stopped at some little bus depot. Loads of motorcycles and taxis waiting, no problem getting to where I needed to go.

Today I Learned: the Danang airport is actually in Thailand.
(Seriously, that's the kind of run-around I see a lot in Southeast Asia, but not so much in Vietnam. Ah well.)

23I will be doing the reverse trip in October - from Hue to Danang. My wife and I have a flight from Danang to HCMC departing at 10:30PM, which doesn't seem to work well with the train schedule - do you by any chance know what time buses depart from Hue to Danang? Is it possible to bring luggage on the bus?
