Traditional shops that have survived many years of flooding and destruction by war. A nice snap shot of what living was like from a by gone era. We walked around several days and found lots of local crafts and goods without the dodging of motorcycles...More

We really enjoyed the Ancient Town. You can find plenty of great shops and restaurants. We had clothes made at Mr Xe and that was a real adventure. This is a great place for good food, coffee and drinks. Batgain hard!

While commercial, it was still mesmerizing. An experience to be had in the late afternoon and evening. Thousands of people, boats, lanterns, and a taste of the past. Take some time to relax and just enjoy the atmosphere. Take a boat ride, and don’t race...More

Hoi An is a great town for visiting historic sites and temples, wandering into galleries, shopping, dining, and walking around. It features lovely tree-lined streets with bright, colorful lanterns everywhere. It's just a short 45-minute drive from Danang - through the China Beach area -...More

Disappointed visit, there is nothing to do in the city. A lot of people, many not interesting shops and no activities after sunset.

Can't visit Ho An without visiting the Ancient town. It's a must see both day and night. Great coffee shops and all the tourist shops. An absolute must visit!!!

I know, we can't complain about too many tourists - because we were adding to them. The old buildings were lovely, and the lanterns are pretty at night, but it was very crowded. Recommend checking if there is a quieter time to visit.

Wondering around Hoi An old town, is just a wonderful experience, with all the character of the old buildings and the lively huddle and bustle of the place, night time is especially beautiful
