  • Market located in the Centre of the Ancient town of Hoi An, both on the part of sale of gender as the part of restaurants worth a stroll, in the area of meat and other smell is peculiar bone care the apprehensive and the restaurant area deserves much the penalty for dine, are small jobs run entirely by ladies that cooked Vietnamese food at an unbeatable price, although Mrs Thu has a reputation we tried other various 2 and they were super both, especially that of Mrs has making a white roses and won ton of Championship, is also the most sympathetic. Eye on the schedule because if you get close to 21:00 it is possible that you already not cenes since they close all between 21:00 and 21:30.

Where to stay in Hoi An

While Hoi An offers a good selection of sleeping options in all price categories, only a few of them lie in the old town, probably the city's most popular tourist area. To stay near this historic neighborhood, look for hotels in the surrounding streets, especially Ba Trieu and Hai Ba Trung. If you can, look for rooms in the evening, when many budget hotels try to fill up by offering deep discounts. For the best choices and bargains, reserve as early as possible.
