Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a very unique place. Situated on the east coast on the South China Sea, it offers much in the way of charm and history. Between the 15th and the 19th Centuries, it was a trading port and much of the central part of the town is still well preserved to reflect this. A large number of the central streets are pedestrian traffic only. Most are narrow with houses, shops, cafes and bars as well as art galleries and studios.
During your stay here, apart from having time to explore and discover, you will be taken to the attractive Japanese Bridge, a covered bridge dating back to the Japanese settlers in the 16th and 17th Centuries. On one side is a Buddhist pagoda attached to the bridge.
Also visit a typical Chinese merchant’s home from the past.
