Things to do in Hoi An
Unfortanetely, I don't have a list of things to do yet. But, at least I can recommend you a good website.
The online activity platform Klook offers many tours in Hoi An at great prices. I used it now for a couple of times and had great experiences. And the prices are often even lower than when you book with a local travel agent!
And most important, by booking the activity in advance, you avoid the problem of fully booked tours.
