hit me with Hoi An anything :D

World's best procrastinator here.

Just mindlessly booked myself a flight to hoi an 6 hours ago.. gonna be arriving at bout 10am today.

I'm traveling alone and have 3 nights there! Gonna be putting up at The Earth Villa. Completely clueless about where and what to see. Love anything from cultural sites to beaches to markets, etc.

Pls hit me up with the absolute must - do and see list! Also helpful tips or what - nots. Any help will be greatly appreciated :D

In my opinion Hoi An is a place just to go and enjoy. I never go visit any of the sights, although there apparently are some to see. During the day sit by the river and enjoy a Vietnamese ice coffee - at night walk along the river and see all the amazing lanterns. Lunch time go to Madam Khanh the Banh Mi Queen. Dinner get a taxi to An Bang Beach for great seafood. Get yourself a bicycle to ride around on it's quite safe in the old town. Just enjoy.

Thank you!!!

I have just got here in the afternoon and went to the old town already. Took some pretty pictures by the river and saw the charming buildings, had dinner at morning glory restaurant and coffee at a random cafe before that.

Gonna be jogging the other way to the beach tme morning to hopefully catch the sun rise! :D and of course book myself a cooking class or food trip at least.

I love this little town already

I think you should try to eat chicken rice of Ms. Buoi (22 Phan Chu Trinh street), it is an amazing food ever. you should go to Cua Dai beach too, it is one of the most beautiful beach of VN

Some of our fav things were:

Cooking class at baby mustard

Hire electric bike and go thru rice fields, town, hop on a ferry and go wherever it takes you (with bike)

- leave the map behind and just explore
