Located in central Vietnam, Hoi An is a town that takes you back in time to when it was a busy port full of traders from around the world. Today you can see this in the mix of Chinese, French, Spanish and German architecture. Even the Japanese presence is evident in the famous bridge. Be prepared to haggle with the shop keepers, enjoy the fabulous food and the hospitality of the locals. I spoke with a man selling all manner of bags from the shop/house where his family had lived for over 120 years! The ambience is preserved by closing the old town off to all motorised transport (mostly motor bikes) enabling you to stroll the streets and take in the atmosphere of Hoi An! Don't miss the best of Vietnam!
