Holiday Destinations / Asia / Vietnam / Travel Guide / Hoi An
Recently declared a World Heritage site, Hoi An was a major international trading port during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Today, parts of the beautifully-preserved town retain the feel of centuries past. It’s also a shopping mecca, famous for its plethora of tailors.
There’s lots to do and see in Hoi An. Maybe browse the cobbled streets and art galleries or hire a bike and cycle through rice paddies out to Cua Dai Beach. Look for paintings, ceramics and colourful cloth lanterns in the town’s markets. For a new look, you could pay a visit to one of the hundreds of tailors and get something special made. Hoi An is also known for its delicious regional food, so be sure to enjoy a meal at a riverside restaurant or perhaps get involved in a cooking class.
This beautiful ancient port is bursting with upmarket restaurants, quirky boutiques, history rich streets around the Old Town, An Bang Beach for leisurely strolls, and great nightlife. A delightful town that has it all.
For many, Hoi An is Vietnam’s most cosmopolitan and civilised town, a graceful city that many of our clients consider the highlight of their trip to Vietnam. Famous sights include the Old Town, the emblematic Japanese Covered Bridge, Tan Ky house, a centuries old, beautifully preserved historic building.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Vietnam on several occasions and know the country inside out. If you’d like some help planning and booking your Vietnam holiday, it’d be my absolute pleasure to help you organise an authentic trip to this fascinating nation in south east Asia.
