Hoi An is an historical trading port from the 15th to the 19th century. Located in the heart of Vietnam, it is about one hour far from Da Nang airport and noted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. I have to say that it’s one of the loveliest city I have ever visited. It is the type of city where you can just wander around to discover new things at any corner ; no need for planning here.
It could literally take you up to several days to discover every single streets of the old town ; each of them having some sort of interest. Expect yellowish walls, pedestrian paths and captivating smells of incense …. and … it get even better at night as you will appreciate lighted-up lanterns all over the streets.
If you are not on a budget, I would definitly recommend you to do some shopping here. It is well-known for tailored suits, home made leather goods and clothing. There are plenty of shops to explore in the area and the quality seems to be quite good.
Foodish wise, Hoi An is full of specialities such as Cao lau: a yummy blend of noodles, pork and local greens (last picture).
