Hoi An Holidays

Authentic and utterly enchanting

Charismatic and utterly enchanting, Hoi An is one of our favourite towns in Vietnam, and should be top of your list if you're planning on visiting this magical destination. 

We love taking a stroll, bike ride or rickshaw through the unique old quarter full of winding lanes and Chinese-style architecture dating all the way back to the 15th century. Mercifully untouched by war and over-development, Hoi An retains a unique sense of history that makes it a true pleasure to explore. Visit the Old Town to see ancient houses, assembly halls and traditional music shows, and wander the many temples that offer an insight into Hoi An's culture and beliefs.
