  • Magical place romantically lit by thousand lanterns.. clasical music played on speakers all over the streets of ancient town.. coulourful great shops. Charming little coffee shops and bars. Loveable place
  • You can imagine what Vietnam cities look like in 60s-80s by visiting Hoi An. The unique architecture here is still maintain until now. The romantic town is covered by old yellow color walls and red color of flowers. The old quarter is bright every night because of larnterns' beauty. It's easy to get why this place is very famous among tourists.
  • A fun and quiet (compared to Hanoi or HCMC) place to bike or motorbike around. Lots of shops, but it has gotten too touristy for its own good. Every store is a tailor or gift shop, so there is little variety. The highlights are its distance from the beach and all of the delicious street food around the central market. Lots of regional specialities like cao lau that is unique to the area.
  • Beautiful streets with lots of tourist. A Must go. Stay here a night is highly recommended.
  • incredible place to get lost. a definite must when in vietnam. the only problem are the beggars on the street hustling you to buy something you would never ever need.
