Hội An, Vietnam*

About Hội An

Hoi An stands for atmosphere. This picturesque town is jam-packed with attractions and has a relaxed, almost dreamlike atmosphere that makes almost everyone come here. This special place, with the narrow streets with wooden, colored houses, is an absolute must. Few places in Asia are as atmospheric as Hoi An.
In recent years, Hoi An has been extremely busy. Almost everyone who travels to Vietnam comes here. Despite being busy, the town keeps its charm. This is mainly because no motorized traffic is allowed in the old center.
Hoi An’s old town is a special mix of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and European influences from the sixteenth century. In its heyday it was an important port city in Vietnam. That atmosphere has always been preserved. That makes it a unique destination.

The center of Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The center has been completely restored and is characterized by the narrow and small streets that are filled with atmospheric Japanese merchant houses, restaurants, museums, Chinese temples, old tea houses and clothing shops. The city also has a market where you can buy many local products.
