Despite the heat really a must to do at the start of your days in Hoi An. We had a nice guide who told us a lot about the history of the city. We also had access to five famous sights, such as the Japanese covered bridge and a Chinese temple. Everything is close together, so you don't have to walk far. Finally we have seen a typical Vietnamese show. Had a very nice afternoon!
