Located on the banks of the poetic Thu Bon River, in central Quang Nam province, 30 kilometers south of Da Nang, Hoi An ancient town is an Eastern oriental classic captivation. With the strategic location on the banks of the great river, with one seaside border (East), it used to be one of the major trading centers in Southeast Asia during the 16th century due to the early western trader occupying period.

A true wonder of the world. You must see Hoi An old town before you die.....There is nothing like it anywhere. Best in the cooler months but even in the warm season the nights are fine. The river at night is a sight to behold. Just do it.

Cute little town with great shopping but a little short on sites. Worth a visit of a couple days but no more.

If Ho Chi Minh City is 100% frenetic this place is 100% laid back. Lovely and hot in late March, a camera man's paradise. The ideal spot to bring that special one in your life. Calm and peaceful, get a good hotel as you will be back home after 10pm in March. Everything closes quickly. Did find a few late... More

Buy a ticket ( adults only) and it covers you for your entire stay. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, cyclo rides, boat tours etc.. Very touristy though

We walked down at night and enjoyed the crowds the lanterns and the lights floating on the river. We walked round the night market but resisted buying anything. We did return in the daytime to visit some of the old houses, these were interesting but it did become very hot and crowded. We did enjoy the Museum of trade and... More

I absolutely loved Hoi An! The city has such a lovely atmosphere, particularly in the Old Town where the streets are lined with small shops and restaurants in quaint yellow buildings. The restaurants serve excellent food, and the tailors are an experience not to be missed. The city is beautiful at night-time when it is lit up by thousands of... More

As Trip Advisor says, this is the 13th best destination in the world! But what exactly does this little-known town offer? Aside from a rich history, the town has managed to remain stuck in a time warp. And because of this, it has so so much character. By day, the town is already very impressive with its old architecture, but... More
