Hoi An provides a slice of old town Vietnam on your trip to this incredible country. With its grand architecture, port town heritage and enticing history, Hoi An deserves a full exploration.
Some of Vietnam’s best scenery is to be found here, and the lack of traffic makes it a sanctuary for anyone who wants a break from the high energy of a place like Ho Chi Minh City.
Hoi An is known for its high concentration of clothes shops. So if you want to bag a beautifully tailored suit for cheap or an inexpensive handmade dress, this is the place to go.
Stroll past ancient Chinese temples, vintage tea warehouses, rice fields and picturesque river banks to discover a town that is alive and thriving – just in a very laidback way.

One of the best things about Vietnam is the food, so it makes sense to go on a gastronomic tour when you’re in the country. And what better place to do it than in Hoi An, where alleyways and lanes give way to bustling markets, street hawkers and cafes all producing some of the finest food you’ll have in southeast Asia.
Holidays to Hoi An should never miss out on tasting the street food. From banh mi to BBQ pork and fresh noodles to white rose dumplings – this is a must-do experience, which will leave you feeling enlightened, enlivened and nicely full.
Another favourite among visitors to Hoi An, is Cam Nam Island. This place is authentically Vietnamese, with lots of local artists living creatively on the island. Check out the famous carpenter, who makes the most intricate wood sculptures.
Take a boat out or cycle along the pedestrian bridge that links it to the mainland, and enjoy a day exploring this beautiful island.
Alternatively, you can visit the Ancient Town of Hoi An, situated on the banks of the Thu Bon River. A UNESCO world heritage centre dating from the 15th to the 19th century, this district is filled with timber frame buildings, pagodas, a Japanese bridge and a ferry quay which is a reminder of the area’s trading port which served most of southeast and east Asia as well as the rest of the world.
Unsurprisingly, Vietnam has a tropical climate, so Hoi An has warm weather all year round. This area only has two seasons – the dry season and the rainy season. Between June to August, the temperatures can reach up to 38C, while November and December goes down to 19 to 24 degrees Celsius.
One thing to bear in mind with Hoi An is its exceptionally long rainy season which stretches from September to January.
But when it comes to deciding the best time to visit, most tourists prefer February through to May, when the weather is mild, humidity low and a lot less rain.
