Destination Overview

In many ways, the whole of Vietnam revolves around the delightful and ancient town of Hoi An.

UNESCO gave its salute to its cultural history by crowning it a world heritage site in the late Nineties. It was first founded on its lucrative fishing industry, yet trading ancestors left few descendents behind. Instead, the tiny town reveals its history through its ancient architecture, which offers a unique blend of Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese styles. It has built its reputation through its perfectly preserved pagodas and temples, which portray an authentic vision of the past that enlivens historical tourism today. Its contemporary reputation is built in quite a different way: It is world renowned for its gifted tailors, who are visited by international fashionistas in need of the perfect suit. Holidays to Hoi An, Vietnam happen at a sluggish pace—it seems impossible not to become enraptured by the sedate serenity that engulfs local lifestyles and personalities. Hoi An's greatest treasure lies in the way it takes its visitors backwards in time to eras that usually exist only in the far reaches of the imagination. The little known Sa Huynh were the prehistoric residents of the town during the bronze age. Eastern mariners followed, setting up a kingdom founded on oceanic and river trade.

It's only natural to take in your Hoi An, Vietnam Holiday on foot by ambling along the narrow lanes of the residential area. Unique wooden homes are some of the most well preserved examples of 19th and 20th century architecture. The town's heritage goes back even further into the 2nd century BC when the Thu Bon River acted as a central point for the expansion of the Sa Huyne people. The best way to get a taste of the town's most ancient culture is by taking to the river by bamboo basket fishing boat. Those more interested in ecology than history will prefer getting to know the locals and natural landscapes settled along the banks. Explorers who have their sights set on more luxurious pastimes will find that the river caters for every fancy through its cuisine, which is prepared and eaten on the boats themselves. The guides are renowned for their entertaining stories, which are always dished up with a generous dose of humour.

For the average tourist, a holiday to Hoi An, Vietnam needs to come with sites, adventures and shopping. The town isn't shy to demonstrate its modern amenities, which are found in its boutique resorts. Adventurous spirits spice up their holidays in Hoi An, Vietnam by cycling along its outskirts on mountain bikes. Tra Que, which lies along the town's boundaries, is ideal for camera-wielding travellers wanting to participate in the town's most profound cultural experiences. Cooking classes show you how to achieve that delectable Vietnamese flavour, but lazier eaters can find readily prepared Quang noodles and spring rolls from village vendors. It is also possible to spend the day with local farmers, who will introduce you to their daily lifestyles in living colour. Spend the night emptying your wallet at the night market, where traders offer souvenirs and food samples. The vividly dyed silk lanterns on display light up the night, transforming the zone into a Technicolour wonderland. Trend setters don't dare leave the grounds without rummaging through the fine silk, chiffon and lace on sale, which is quickly converted into the garment of your choice by the skilled tailors on site.

The Marble Mountains offer one of Hoi An, Vietnam holidays' more profound experiences. Five massive hills representing five spiritual elements guard a series of caves and grottoes that hide Buddhist temples and sculptures within. The site has become a popular pilgrimage for spiritual seekers, who usually climb to the apex of the Mountain of Water. This  staircase leads to Tam Quan Gate. After a tough day of climbing, China Beach offers a quiescent spot where you can satisfy your hunger and rest your weary legs. The Quan Cong temple is a stellar example of authentic Chinese architecture. It was built in honour of a general who was often prayed to by merchants. Ponds and statues ordain the red and gold palettes of the pagodas.
