About Travel to Hoi An

Hoi An is small coastal city located 30 km to the south of Da Nang which is home to around 150,000 people. Is also a very popular tourist destination. Large numbers of day trippers visit Hoi An from Da Nang and Nha Trang. The tour groups tend to come between 16:00 to 20:00 to enjoy seeing small boats on the river romantically lit up by Chinese style paper lanterns. Evening time is very lively in Hoi An particularly in the riverside area around Sông Hoài Square.

History of Hoi An

Hoi An is a very old settlement, the recorded history of which goes back as far as the 1st Century. Hoi An’s coastal position, and natural harbour near the mouth of the Bon River, made it a good location as a centre of seabourne trade which was crucially important in a time before the combustion engine was invented.

Hoi An was a massively important trading point at two points in its history. First, as the principal trading centre of the Cham Empire from the 7th to 10th Centuries, and then again from 16th to 18th Centuries prior to the unification of Vietnam under the Nguyen Dynasty. The second period of Hoi An’s prosperity was particularly notable as it attracted permanent settlements of Dutch, Japanese and Chinese settlers. Some of the buildings and bridges built by these early foreign settlers have survived intact and are now major tourist attractions.

Hoi An Ancient Town

The older part of Hoi An by the river has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and re-branded as ‘Hoi An Ancient Town’ to attract visitors. The main attractions of Hoi An Ancient Town are located within a fairly compact area intermingled with hotels, restaurants and bars focussed on catering to foreign tourists. Hoi An Ancient Town is a popular place to stay overnight as a consequence.

It’s free to enter into Hoi An Ancient Town, however, you need to pay an entrance fee to visit 21 designated historical sites. The most famous of these are a 16th Century Japanese style covered bridge and a 15th Century temple established by Chinese immigrants. There are also 4 different museums and 4 very old houses which have been opened up to paying visitors.

Hoi An Beach

To the east of Hoi An Ancient Town, and to both the north and south of where the Bon River empties into the sea are two popular beaches. In recent years large and luxurious hotels have been built on both of these beaches, and Hoi An is rapidly becoming one of Vietnam’s premier coastal resort destinations.
