The old town has many great places to shop and eat
We bought mainly art - lovely oil paintings for around $35 US
The tour buses decsend on the place late afternoon making the morning the best time to visit and shop

Small roads, pedestrianised to enhance the visitor experience. Lovely shops and varied restaurants. Traditional multi coloured lanterns giving a great ambience at night. Sellers who respect your no and don't push you to buy or try to fob you off with something else. It's a lovely place!
Sadly it's also very busy so if you want a peaceful time, avoid holidays and weekends. And unpleasantly, the vast majority of the staff employed by the tourist office and in the ancient sights are impolite and unpleasant. Sadly also unavoidable.

Very pretty town, super romantic and atmosphere after dark. Many restaurants, boutique shops and tailors around. Wondered the streets for 2 days and then suddenly someone asked me to pay atrocious price to walk the street. What?!

...but you'll soon find that it's just the same couple shops copy-pasted throughout the town.

Each souvenir shop pretty much has the exact same merchandise stocked and the prices don't really differ. Silk shops differ a little bit but after you see a couple, they start repeating as well.

The atmosphere is Hoi An Ancient Town's biggest asset. Go there for the overall atmosphere. As for shopping, pick a place and haggle. They all end up being the same items at similar prices.
