Once a major Southeast Asian trading post from the 15th to the 19th centuries; city streets are lined with houses and businesses from different centuries and different architectural designs. The UNESCO World Heritage Site showcases the different nationalities who worked together for the betterment of the community: Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and European. Chinese temples, a Japanese-designed bridge and Vietnamese Assembly Hall are all restored and open for tour.
The city is small, easy to navigate on foot and many streets are limited to walking and cycling traffic. Lined with souvenir shops, Hoi An is also known for its expert tailoring. Visitors can order a suit, dress or jacket and it will be ready before they leave the city. Rich silk fabric and soft leather can be chosen by guests for one-of-a-kind garments.
Guests can take bike rides into the countryside, visit the night market, eat at one of the excellent restaurants or just enjoy an afternoon by the pool at one of the city’s lovely hotels.
