The small town of Hoi An is the perfect place to break your journey midway through Vietnam. Located on the country’s magnificent central coast, this one-time trading port retains an old world ambience and a rich historical quality that resulted in its recent listing as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Let TUI escort you through the narrow lanes and streets of the old town, lined with centuries old shophouses combining the influences of the many trading communities who visited Hoi An: French, Japanese, Chinese. See the Japanese Covered Bridge, the gaudy interior of the Guangdong or Fukien Chinese Assembly Halls; take tea in an 18th Century home; jostle for space with the fish mongers in the lively riverside seafood market,; cycle out to Cua Dai Beach or take a sunset river cruise – these are all part of the unique Hoi An experience.
And no trip to Hoi An would be complete without shopping: ceramics, wooden carvings, silk lanterns, paintings, or step inside one of the many tailors shops and get measured up for a silk blouse or business suit. Prices are very reasonable – especially if you sharpen your bargaining skills beforehand!
