Today, pots, bowls, cups, and tiles from the village are known for their endurance and shiny finishing glaze, which shines as bright as enamel. If you’re looking for a souvenir to bring home, consider whistles shaped like animals, or flower pots.

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.
