FIRST TIME IN HOI AN - WHAT TO DO


If you’re preparing for your first time in Hoi An, you’ve probably already discovered that there’s so much to see and do that it can be a little overwhelming. This peaceful town was a major trading port between the 15th and 19th centuries. Today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with beautiful temples...

Hoi An doesn’t have an airport or train station, but you can get here by taking a taxi, bus or motorcycle from Da Nang City. The old town is very walkable. Cars and motorcycles aren’t allowed on the roads in the evening, so you won’t need to worry about enduring Vietnam’s notorious traffic conditions. Check out our Hoi An survival guide below, where we list down some of our favourite restaurants, shops, bars, attractions and hotels.

Hoi An offers a very peaceful setting, making it a popular holiday spot for travellers who want a relaxing vacation in Vietnam. Sightseeing options include old-town architecture, Buddhist shrines, French colonial houses, art galleries and old canals. The town centre is small enough to get around on foot, and the traffic is nowhere near as stress-inducing as it is in cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh.

WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT HOI AN:

  • Good choice of mid-range and budget restaurants
  • Cheap handicrafts and tailoring services
  • Very traditional setting
  • The town is easy to explore on foot or bicycle
