Once a flourishing trading port, this UNESCO World Heritage Site remains well-preserved with old-style shophouses, museums, and temples all open to explore.

What people are saying about Hoi An Ancient Town

Very nice walk. The ruins of My Son are worth it. Although they cannot be compared to The Ruins of Angkor, they give us a glimpse of the Champa kingdom that competed with the Khmer kingdom. Lunch in a nice place and later visit to the romantic Hoi An. Excellent and very warm guide
