Hoi An

Once a major trading port of Southeast Asia from the 16th to the early 19th Century, this UNESCO World Heritage listed town is a place lost in time. Retaining its well kept original historic buildings and ancient backstreets, it is a charming town and also the best place for tailor-made clothing.

The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colourful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.
