Hoi An is a town oozing charm and history, having largely escaped the destruction of successive wars.  There’s plenty to do in Hoi An. Emphatically the most enchanting place along the Vietnam coast, this is one spot worth lingering in.

Once a sleepy riverside village, it’s now quite definitely a tourist town – with hotels, restaurants, bars, tailors and souvenir shops dominating the old centre. Despite this air of irreality, Hoi An’s charisma pervades.  Justly, this is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Known as Faifo to Western traders, from the 17th to 19th centuries it was one of Southeast Asia’s major international ports. Vietnamese ships and sailors based here sailed all around Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.

Perhaps more than any other place in Viet­nam, Hoi An retains a sense of history that envelops you as you explore it. This is especially true on ‘Hoi An Legendary Night’. Every month on the full moon, motorbikes are banned from the Old Town, which is transformed into a magical land of silk lanterns, traditional food, song and dance, and games in the streets.

Every year during the rainy season, particularly in October and November, Hoi An has problems with flooding, especially in areas close to the waterfront.
