Hoi An


Hoi An

This picturesque town is a wonder, a beautiful example of a Southeast Asian trading port straight out of the 15th Century. Hoi An Vietnam has something for every kind of traveller: UNESCO World Heritage Sites, custom tailoring, unspoilt beaches, gourmet restaurants, traditional crafts, one of a kind attractions and much more.
Once the commercial capital of the Cham Empire, Hoi An Vietnam is now the garment centre of Vietnam. Whether you’re looking for a reproduction of your favourite ensemble, an outfit clipped from fashion magazines or simply a tailored suit, Hoi An is the place to shop.
It’s easy to get to Hoi An and let your quest for a new wardrobe overtake your sightseeing agenda, but don’t miss out on some of the ancient treasures tucked into this town. In addition to the countless old houses featuring well maintained traditional architecture, there is a wealth of colourful markets, grand halls, natural formations and stunning pagodas.
This may be a traditional city better known for its shopping and historic architecture, but that does not preclude the presence of quality restaurants, innovative cuisine and informative cooking classes. The food scene is alive and thriving, a magnet for gourmands and amateur eaters alike. Top off your touring with a trip to the coast and a dip in the ocean at one of the nearby world class beaches.

Old Town Entry Fee: The local government is now charging foreign tourists VND 120,000 (around $6) to enter the Old Town, while Vietnamese visitors pay VND 80,000. There is a lot of discussion about this and the policy may change. Read more about it here.
