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.

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).
