This cute little town is heaven for photographers, and a relaxing spot for everyone to explore. There is also a food market that will excite any foodie. You will be surprised to see how well the ancient town blends in with the modern Vietnamese lifestyle.
This is one of the most popular parts of the Old Town which you shouldn't miss. You don't have to spend a long time here, however, it is nice to stop and take a picture and read about the bridge's history.
The Old House of Phung Hung is a typical commercial, 18th-century Vietnamese house. Yet the architecture of this 300 year-old house is unique, complete with a beautiful little indoor courtyard, and dark wooden interior with intricate carvings. A great place to learn about local culture and values.
Treat yourself to new, beautiful, tailor-made clothes using Aobaba's fast service. I love the feeling of being served like a queen, choosing the fabric I like, having it designed just for me, and being able to wear it in a matter of 24 hours. The service is the best, and you can not get clothes like this for a similar price anywhere else in Hoi An.
If you want to experience real local life and real local food, then it is worth visiting the central market. Buy delicious fruits and seafood from here or just stop by one of many food stalls to sample the local produce.
A beautiful pagoda with an interesting history, Phuc Kien is a great work of architecture. Apparently, the temple is dedicated to the goddess of the sea and the protector of the sailors. I love walking around the temple, alone with my thoughts, it's a very relaxing and peaceful experience.
A little cozy place that serves the best Vietnamese food in town. The service at Nu is excellent, the food tastes delicious, and it is very cheap too. Although the menu is quite short, you will be surprised at how great all of the dishes are.
It is not surprising that this museum is known as the museum of folklore. Every display, from a small tool to a dress, has a lovely story behind it. I love to see how the silk is produced because it reminds me of my grandmother who used to be a silk farmer. The museum successfully reflects the traditional life of local people.
If you are looking for fine dining, Gourmet Corner has a great atmosphere and good food. I love sitting in the tropical garden where the tables are lit with candles. Here you can relax and have a bit of a break from the bustle of Hoi An.
I love the atmosphere of this bar where you can experience talented musicians who play a variety of different musical styles. It is an ideal place to relax after a day of strolling around Hoi An.
A nice sandy beach, calm clear sea, and not too crowded - I love to be lazy and just sit here in one of the private huts looking over the beautiful sea with a delicious drink in hand.
Stop for lunch at one of the best restaurants on An Bang beach, which not only offers the tastiest Vietnamese food, but also hosts interesting cooking courses.
Take a cooking tour that will give you a great experience of real Vietnamese food. From going to the market and buying ingredients, to the boat trip up the river, to learning how to cook Vietnamese food, everything is organized perfectly by the helpful and friendly staff.
This is one of the best places for 'banh mi' (small baguettes with different fillings) in Hoi An. I could eat Madam Khanh's banh mi for breakfast, lunch and dinner and never get tired of it! Buy some and prepare a picnic out of town.
Fancy getting out of the bustle of Hoi An and going to a beach paradise? Cham Island is my favorite beach spot in Hoi An. Here you can relax in peace on a long, white sandy beach, swim or dive in clear, clean water, and see beautiful corals.
Tra Que Vegetable Village is a great place for a family day out. There are activities here to keep everyone entertained, from exploring how to grow vegetables like a farmer, to learning how to cook Vietnamese food. The village also offers picturesque scenery with rice fields, a river, and herb gardens.
