Boasting historical profoundness and impressive architectural aesthetic value, traveling to Hoi An is a must-do out of must-do. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located just south of Danang city, taking a 45-minute ride to get there. Once being a leading Southeast Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century, Hoi An today is one of the country’s wealthiest towns and a cosmopolitan melting pot, making it one of the most important tourism centers in Vietnam.

Though numerous visitors swarm the small town home to not more than ten thousand people, fortunately enough, Hoi An hasn’t been contaminated with traffic and pollution. Hoi An attractions are very well-preserved examples of traditional Asian buildings display the fusion of cultures over time: tidy alleys packed with local shops having artworks, daily groceries, and handicrafts on sale; historic Chinese temples and Japanese merchant houses still shine under the sun; visitors seek relaxation in distinctive cafes along the riverfront; the local market is hustled every day on its duty to make people’s life easier, etc. Walking further you’ll reach the Japanese Bridge, built in the early 17th century by Japanese craftsmen and renowned for its exquisite decorations.

One of the must-try activities in Hoi An is the Eco Tour which provides an authentic social and cultural insight into the local Vietnamese way of life. Meanwhile, you will take part in some hands-on activities which are fun, safe, and interesting to people of all ages.
