Discover Hoi An
Hoi An, once the trading capital of Vietnam, is for many travellers one of the most favorite places to visit during their trip in Vietnam. In this charming city, you can wander around for days through the Old Town without getting bored. Most people stay longer than initially planned or regret they couldn’t stay longer.
Seeing the Old Town in the evening when the lanterns color the charming streets will make you fall in love with this city. If you were planning to buy a suit or want high-quality handmade shoes, Hoi An is definitely the place to be. Going to the beach or exploring the city by bike is very easy way to get around and many guesthouses offer bicycle rental. Some homestays even provide it for free when you stay with them (HaLo HomeStay).

Things to do in Hoi An
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.
