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.

Ancient Hoi An is a wonderful place to visit and explore however it is getting busier and somewhat crowded, but still a must place to see. Yaly Couture make custom made clothes in a day

Having expected this to be an interesting historical visit, we were taken aback to find ourselves surrounded by aggressively persistent hawkers and constantly dodging busy traffic. Just because cars are banned does not mean that walking around is easy. Motor scooters, motor bikes, push bikes and a form of rickshaw vie with street vendors to impede passage throughout the area and even when sitting down having a drink, we were still constantly accosted by passing pedlars.
Definitely not my favourite experience in Vietnam

The town is gorgeous and incredibly romantic. The lanterns at night are very beautiful. I would recommend anyone to come visit Hoi An and take their time here.

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 !
