Owner description: 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.

Entry ticket includes visit to six historic buildings, including chinese meeting/assembly buildings, merchants' houses, pagodas, etc. Being traffic free, it was a really delightful area to explore and enjoy. Could have spent an extra couple of days there !

This was the place that we were most looking forward to and we were not left feeling disappointed!

This was the last destination on a list of different places in Cambodia & Vietnam (mainly cities) and a few people along our travels said they wernt very impressed with Hoi An which left us feeling a bit disappointed , however....we feel completely different and wish we had longer than 5 days here. We are staying at the Muong Thanh hotel just outside of the town so that we get the best of both worlds with the beach and the town. We have a free shuttle from the hotel to the old town.

The lanterns, river, tailors, bars & restaurants are brilliant with lots of choice.

Beautiful place to just walk around taking in the scenery & visiting the historic sites. Very cheap day of entertainment with just a small fee to pay upon entry to the old town (this gives you entry for the duration of your stay in hoi an). The only negative we found was this is a very touristy area where you will get approached constantly & hassled to buy things. A photographer's dream. We were entertained for hours!
