Discover Hoi An

Hoi An, once the trading capital of Vietnam, is for many travellers one of the most favourite places to visit during their trip to 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.

Riding a bike is an easy way to get around the city or to nearby beaches. Many guesthouses offer bicycle rentals. Some homestays even provide it for free when you stay with them (like HaLo HomeStay).

PRO TIP: If you were planning to buy a suit or high-quality handmade shoes, Hoi An is the place to be!
