Hoi An the Jewel in the Old Emperors Crown.
Sep 2016
What a joy it was to have this city included in our tour of Vietnam it was definitely the favourite City of all those we visited. A small City that is easily navigated where all areas are accessible by foot or cyclo is full of amazing, interesting sights, sounds and history. Leave your hotel and make the short walk into the wonderful mix of streets and lanes and start you tour of discovery. Hoi An Old Town is filled with old buildings that have been turned into Stores, Museums, Coffee Cafe's, restaurants and a fantastic variety of interesting shops. A visit during the day is filled with noise, smells and wonderful characters and it is fun just to sit and watch the busy world go by but a nightime visit adds a whole new dimension of lights, colour and street performers. Between certain hours cars and motor bikes are not permitted in thhe Ancient town which makes getting about simpler and easier. Hoi An is the home of Tailors and Dressmakers and this allows the traveler the opportunity to have all sorts of clothes made in a quick time at reasonable rates. There is a night market on the other side of the Lantern Bridge at the end of Hai Ba Trunhg Street which is full of life and souvenirs and a lively bartering battle if you enjoy that sort of thing. Even the Lantern bridge is worth lingering on for a Photo opportunity and to enjoy the passing parade of tourists and locals all vying for your business. You can purchase a ticket at many shops and in your Hotel for around $5 USD that allows you entrance to 5 of 18 historical sites such as the Japanese Bridge, Chinese Temple, Fukian Assembly Hall etc. If you do not want to purchase this ticket you will still see and enjoy the many and varied points of interest available to the tourist in Hoi An. The Highlight of Ancient Hoi an is the vast number of fantastic restaurants available to enjoy and savour a varied host of flavours and aromas. A walk downn any street presents you with so many eating places that you will go mad trying to choose but don't despair any choice will be a good one. You can choose from Art Galleries that have a Olde World Coffee Caf'e in the middle, any number of traditional Vietnamese Restaurants, Semi Fast Food Places serving a mixture of traditional and new, and other Restaurants and Cafe's offering food from all over the world. Just wander the streets, look around and up at the mix of Vietnamese and French Colonial Architecture that gives this City it's unique quality then sit in a Caf'e and watch the Hoi An people go about their business and I promise you will fall in love with this fantastic beauty as much as we did. Go there or be square.

Be there on time for the great traditional shows!
Aug 2015 • Couples
If you are interested in traditional performances, this is a must visit. I make it a point to attend a cultural show wherever I visit and this is a nice preview of what this place has to offer in terms of traditional music and dance. We were all given stools to sit on when we enter the place as they prepare themselves for the first show of the day at 10:15am. If you couldn't make it for this one, there's another one at 3:15pm. Performers were all dressed in their traditional costumes as they played the instruments and sang. There is also the bingo game here to show you how it is played. This game is a traditional game that will be played nightly near the bridge area as well. After watching the performance, you can walk around the shop to see how lanterns are made, free tea for you to try and other handicrafts for you to buy. If this performance is not enough for you, you can pay extra and watch a full length performance at a theatre on Bach Dang street every evening if not mistaken. Well worth a ticket for this one.

Really enjoyed the show
The music and dance show were really great and it lasts for about 20 mins. I went in the morning at 10:15, but there is another one at 3:15pm. You need to use one of your 5 tickets, but it's worth it.

Got to see them making lanterns in the shop and didn't find the sellers too pushy. They might ask, but we just said 'no thank you' with a smile and they left us to ourselves.

Nice stalls, great performance
Apr 2014 • Couples
We went a morning musical and dance performance, which went for about 30mins, and was very well done, it was very enjoyable, lots of variety in the show. Make sure you get there early if you want a seat though!
Then we had a look around the stalls, they had some nice souvenirs, and it felt nicer buying a little souvenir from somewhere we had a connection to because of the great performance, rather than just any stall on the street.
The staff at the shops were very friendly, and not overly pushy or aggressive which made a nice change to some of our other shopping experiences in Vietnam.

Overall, nice little place, definitely worth a visit.

Interesting shop
Apr 2014 • Couples
My partner and I stumbled on this shop. We took a look around at all of the different crafts on show. We organised lantern making form the following day. We didn't really know what to expect and how much of the lantern you would get to make. When we arrived we we asked what colour we wanted to make and set to work glueing the strips of fabric onto the premade bamboo shell. It took the best part of an hour and we had a good sense of achievement when we were done.

They encourage you to take a look around the shop which we were happy to do. I would say they're a bit too pushy even by Vietnam standards!

We really enjoyed the music and dance show (even if the performers didn't look like they were).

One of best attractions in Hoi An
Mar 2012 • Couples
This attraction is in an interesting ancient building. They give two half hour traditional Vietnamese musical and dance performances a day. There are numerous artisans working in different craft areas such as lantern making, embroidery, wood carving, pottery. There are also items for sale. There is an admission charge and it comes under the city's heritage pass which admits you to 5 locations such as temples, communal houses and museums. We found this one to be one of the best, especially because of the musical performance.
