Owner description: Located on the banks of the poetic Thu Bon River, in central Quang Nam province, 30 kilometers south of Da Nang, Hoi An ancient town is an Eastern oriental classic captivation. With the strategic location on the banks of the great river, with one seaside border (East), it used to be one of the major trading centers in Southeast Asia during the 16th century due to the early western trader occupying period.

“The Prettiest Town in Vietnam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Hoi An was my favorite town in Vietnam. It is a small, but so pretty. The town itself is was adorned with beautify all colors silk lamps. It has many small mom and pop shops with many arts and craft work to sell. They are famous for their beautiful silk, silk lamps, and numerous tailor shops. They can make you a cloth of your liking in 24 hours, or so they promise. We took a riksha tour along the river, and the rice fields and the river sights were beautiful. Don't miss this town!

“Exactly as described”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

A great French colonial ambience...I found the French bread better in Saigon though but the wet market really buzzes here
