Hoi An is an outstanding example of a well-preserved ancient town that has been designated a World Heritage Site. Known as Faifo in the past, it was a major port town that boasted multi-cultural influences from the 16th – 18th centuries. Hoian is most travellers’ must-see for a couple of days for a quick catch, or more days at for deeper exploration of its surroundings and beach relaxation.
Hoi An’s tailors are renowned for their high workmanship, so be sure to shop for tailor-made clothes. Do also shop for interesting souvenirs such as silk lanterns and custom made jewelry. Head to the Old Town where historical sights await. There, you can cross the Japanese covered bridge, stroll through the cultural halls, enjoy a traditional music performance, and explore the layout of an ancient house.
Out of the Ancient Town, you may love to ride a bicycle through the small villages, meet up and join with the local farmers working in the fields, and discover artisans crafting pottery in the narrow streets.
Just a few kilometers out of town, Cua Dai Beach’s golden sands provide a nice place to get revitalized and unwind over fresh seafood. Or take a hideaway to the luxury beach resorts located right on the beach of Danang, which is just 30 km away.
For day trip, opt for the historical Cham statues at My Son Sancturary or to the Marble Mountain where caves, temples and magnificent views await at the summit. Bach Ma National Park is also very accessible from Hoian. Used to be the French Hill Station; Bach Ma now offers some fantastic adventure options. Old French Villas lay in ruins along the jungle trails can contribute to make your trip to Hoian a fantastic mix of adventure and culture.
