Best of Hoi An

Top itineraries and travel advice in and around Hoi An
The riverside town of Hoi An has one of Vietnam’s best-preserved historic centers. The tree-lined streets of this Unesco World Heritage site are lined with beautifully preserved merchant houses, assembly halls and temples, some of which date back to the 17th century. Architectural highlights lurk around every bend in Hoi An, with its collection of over 800 historic buildings. When you need a change of scenery, you’re also near some fine seaside escapes like picturesque An Bang Beach with its white sands backed by waterfront bars and restaurants. 

You can learn about Hoi An’s many layers of history on a guided walk through the atmospheric lanes of its Old Quarter. You can get an overview of Central Vietnamese cuisine during a hands-on cooking course, or leave the preparation to the experts during a meal hosted at a local home. The Hoi An region has a centuries-long connection to the sea, and you can see how well-preserved traditions play out on a visit to a fishing village outside of town. West of Hoi An, the Bho Hoong Village makes a rewarding full-day outing. There members of the Co Tu ethnic group share with visitors their culture and customs - as well as a meal and drinks, like locally made palm wine.
