About Hoi An

UNESCO World Heritage

Hoi An is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th-19th century and gained recognition as a world heritage site in 1999. The contrast of the ancient port set against the colourful yellow old town provides a picturesque setting.


Hoi An is well known for its colourful lanterns that light up the old town at night. Even the canals surrounding the old town are lit up with floating lanterns. Each month they host a full moon festival where the entire old town turns off all the power and is lit only by lanterns.


The cafés in Hoi An are as diverse and unique as the travellers that pass through this town. You will find an endless array of charming restaurants and coffee shops to discover.

Rural Life & Rice Fields

Outside of the old town, you will find traditional rice paddies with cows and ducks grazing as well as fishermen in the tranquil waterways.


Multiple amazing Sandy beaches perfect for a relaxing day swimming.
