Full description
Discover Hoi An Ancient Town’s quaint buildings, cosy teahouses, and lantern festivals down by the river during a half-day guided tour. Start the experience with a gently bob downstream in a traditional basket boat. Once you have soaked up the luscious scenic views, head to the next stop of the day, Hoi An Ancient Town. Next, stop off at several Chinese and Japanese assembly halls, each built and decorated in a traditionally ornate style. Learn about the town’s flourishing ceramics industry as you pass by a traditional pottery museum and watch locals at work. Enjoy the highlight of the tour, a visit to the elegant Japanese Covered Bridge, originally erected to divide the city during the Japanese occupation. While the bridge was once a symbol of segregation, over time it has become a much-cherished location for tourists and locals alike. Finish things off with a handicraft tour of Hoi An: learn how locals make a living and shop for colorful souvenirs.
