    from the outside, Hoi An ancient town is a baeutiful ancient. One of the most popular tourist attractions because of the colorful beauty of the lights and the dishes that attract visitors here.

    Stall number 33 had some great items and I bought a lovely ring. They were super helpful and not pushy when it came to selling. I got it for a reasonable price too. Definitely a stall to head to in the market :)

    Spent pleasant days here, not too busy with the option of different types of bars and restaurants at the rear. A few shops off the beach where you can pick up drinks and beach items if you don’t want to use the bars with facilities.

    I will preface by saying that this review is subjective because, I truly admire the passion Rehahn puts into his work. I’ll also back up what I’m saying because, I have diploma in fine art photography and understand the craft and discipline of being a fine art photographer.

    I’ve seen Rehahn’s work long before coming to Vietnam more then seven years ago. His portraits are captured so candidly, uncontrived and at that perfect moment when he releases the shutter. One could say that in a digital age, it is very easy for anyone to pick up their smart phone or even a decent DSLR or mirrorless camera and snap a picture. To take it to the next level in making an image, a physical print or in this case a fine art print, is a whole other discipline, world of understanding and a lifetime of practicing. Rehahn certainly demonstrates that understanding in his body of work.

    Over the last ten years living in Vietnam and specifically Hoian, he has been practicing and honing his craft of making fine art portrait images. His primary body of work or what I call his passion project, was to capture the 54 different cultural groups of Vietnam. This has not been an easy task to accomplish, as some of these cultural groups are somewhat recluses. He and his team never gave up and worked tirelessly with the government and community elders to gain permission to be able to make stunning images.

    What is even more impressive is that he gives back to the communities a portion of the proceeds of each sale of an image. These funds go to help those individuals whom have allowed him to make an image of them. If you thought the story would end there, you would be incorrect. He has also invested in creating a complimentary museum in Hoian with all 54 culture groups he’s captured, along with their traditional clothes. These traditional costumes have been meticulously and painstakingly brought from remote areas of Vietnam back to Hoian to be preserved and shared.

    Now that the world is getting back to the new normal and you can visit Vietnam quite easily, seeing the world of Vietnam through Rehahn’s eyes is a rare treat. Photography for me is an extremely serious passion, I’m envious that Rehahn has been able to turn his passion into a career. He is truly an extremely talented creator of images, I’m very honoured to call him a friend and that he openly shares his time and stories with me.

    Bravo Rehahn, congratulations in completing your passion project and I look forward to chatting with you again soon.

    Not your typical tourist spot. You actually can do so much here. You learn how the vegetables are farmed. We walked through the garden area and had a wonderful lunch that began with a foot massage and then a neck message. Of course it was followed by a delicious meal which included these veggies! We didn't do the "full on" village experience and wish we had had the time.

    Jack's Cafe is a great place to relax in Hoi An. They are doing an amazing work with rescued cats, and they need support to do it. So, they runs this cafe. You can go there and have a couple of beers or juices, have a delicious vegetarian food and play with the cats. Is so good! For animal's lovers this is a must to do.

    Don't you just love a street market. We arrived at our Hotel, booked in and all that. Then we decided to go for a stroll. Just a few yards from our Hotel there was the market. Very colourful, very vibrant, and wonderfull smells to take in. You can look at all the stalls, my main interest is of course, the food one's. It really is a good market with lots to see and there are plenty of places to eat, if you are not fond of street food, so do not worry, just enjoy.

    This is a very iconic site, linking 2 parts of Hoi An's ancient town. I am a little confused, because on one occasion we were asked to buy a ticket to cross it, the next times not.

    "Cua Dai" used to be one of the most beautiful beaches near Hôi An, with soft sand and blue warm waters. It is still beautiful, but has been suffering from erosion, which reduced severely the sand stretch at certain points. Anyway, after a day sightseeing around Hôi An and nearby attractions, allow yourself a quick dip and moments of relaxation on "Cua Dai Beach". Enjoy!

    visited here twice last year september when i travlled to HoiAn.this market incldued open air stalls and indoors market. heard that the food inside the market is great, so i tried a food stall,stall no is E050,Ms Gai stall.i ordered the famous cau lau noodle and white rose.also avocado juice. all were delicious, they have veggie menu too. there are many food stalls selling same food,so just have a try here, you wont regret. another day i came here for clothes and souvenirs.i visited two stalls,first i bought a small lantern,and some embroidered items,like small drawstring bags.another stall,i bought two shirts and a short. the shirts are printed in bamboo.but after washing, the colour a bit faded,so quality not good.also,even i try hard to bargain,the price still higher,not cheap.so only suggest you trying the food here,if want to buy souvenirs or clothes,go to any shops outside the market.

    SHHHH everyone, this is our secret. Minutes over the bridge to the busy old town, on the island slower pace, more relaxed some great places to eat. We lived there for 3 months last year, and on other visits over 5 years.

    It is developing and that big resort on the right over the bridge is a worry . Can see the locals being squeezed out by money wanting to build resorts. Lets hop[e that it is controlled.

    Hoi An is at risk of cooking the golden goose with what I've seen over just 7 years. whole blocks bulldozed for mega-resorts. That island with the HoiAn theme park is just too too expensive and why would you go to a mock Hoi An in the middle of real Hoi An? don't get it.

    But just love Hoi An and love being able to glide in and out of the busyness over the bridge.

    Snorkeling tour was a joke.

    You can’t see anything in that blurry water.

    Total waste of time and money.
