Overview
More
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.

Loved Hoi An Ancient town. It's a beautiful place to explore with fascinating streets, plenty of places to eat and drink and a safe and relaxing atmosphere. At night it changes again with the multitude of lanterns lit up everywhere. A real gem in Vietnam

Ancient Town of Hoi An is the most fascinating place I went while in Vietnam. It is a cute old town, with kind people and cheap and tasty food; a lot of commerce and gorgeous lanterns that give an unique atmosphere at night

Basically you do need one primarily because of Insurance coverage. The locals will not help you if you have an accident but will only musguide you with their lies.
