Hoi An Ancient Town reviews
I really enjoyed the aesthetic of the town at night and there were so many local specialties around the town to try out. Banh my and the herb tea was my absolute favourite!! more »
Caught the bus into Hoi Ann and then walked to my destination. Visited at Christmas weather was mixed, rained a fair bit, but the beautiful town is definitely one to visit. Stop to have a tea and..... more »
Many places to eat, shop, take pictures, stroll at your pace. None of the merchants where pushy at storefronts. Look around before settling on one place to buy; many shops sell similar items. At night the place really takes on it known charm with all the lanterns. You have to take a lantern boat ride to the other side, even more places to snack, eat and shop. Wonderful experience during our visit. Will definitely go again!!
Beautiful town. Felt like time was frozen here and you can still walk the streets of hundreds years ago. Cultured, beautiful, peaceful and with the friendly hospitality of locals. One of a kind place. Definitely come back as usual.
