Visit hoi an

Graceful, historic Hoi An is Vietnam’s most atmospheric and delightful town. Canary yellow houses draped in bougainvillea, rickety wooden shops aglow with red silk lanterns, rippling green fields of rice, baskets laden with silver fish: Hoi An is redolent of a bygone era, from the 1600s to the 1800s as a major trading outpost known as Faifo, to be exact. This intriguing place by way of example, is the only place in Vietnam that places restrictions on motorbike use, and the only place that forces local businesses, by law, to dangle lanterns from their facades; and by nightfall you’ll see them shining out from narrow alleys and the riverbank in their hundreds, the light reflecting in the waters of the Thu Bon River. Today, this cosmopolitan heritage is reflected in its mix of Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese influences. Because of its rich blend of aesthetics, the entire old city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Stubbornly traditional and jam-packed with sights, the town of Hoi An features a mix of Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and European architecture, and its continued cultural pulse is part of the reason why Hoi An was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.
