Your next destination is Hoi An, a pretty river town that has earned a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. Your walking tour begins along its colourful streets, which have remained largely unchanged for centuries before you enter the Hoi An Museum. Housed in a traditional merchant's house, this museum is known for its fine collection of objects relating to the town's heyday as an important trading port.
Phuoc Kien Temple
Next, visit the Phuoc Kien Temple, a structure built in honour of Thien Hau, the Goddess of the Sea.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing and beautiful of Hoi An's sights is the Japanese covered bridge. Built in 1593 over a stream, it is a wonderful amalgamation of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Japanese architectural characteristics. Appropriately, it connects Hoi An's Japanese and Chinese districts. At the centre of the bridge stands a small temple. Return to the town and its busy streets to do some shopping in the lively open-air market.
Your tour concludes at the pier.
