Museum of Trade Ceramics

Visit the Museum of Trade Ceramics to explore some of the rich trading history of Hoi An. Pottery from India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan is on display.

Phung Hung House

The intricate carpentry work on the Phung Hung House is a mixture of Japanese, Vietnamese, and Chinese styles of workmanship. The 19th century building was once the site of a shop that sold spices and glassware.

Quan Thang

The house of Quan Thang has been standing for over three centuries. The style of architecture has traces of Japanese and Chinese influence, as is common in Hoi An.

Cua Dai Beach

Plop yourself down under a palm tree grove and enjoy the sandy beaches of Hoi An. A gentle tide will soothe you as you sip on a drink and admire the distant glittering of city buildings.

Old House of Tan Ky

The Old House of Tan Ky is a great way to learn more about the illustrious history of Hoi An. A living home, the staff welcomes you with tea and goes on to offer terrific guided tours.

Japanese Covered Bridge

The Japanese Covered Bridge is simple in style and was once flattened by the French to accommodate vehicles, but the overall shape and design of the bridge hasn't changed. While you make your way over to the bridge, stop by the temple located on the north side.

What People Are Saying About Hoi An

Very informative and great insight into traditional Vietnam.

Perfect way to spend a morning in Hoi An. Address in app is incorrect so it took a little time to find the meeting point. You need to update with new address.

Amazing transfer from the airport to Hoi An

I have to say that I will trust again in your service, and not only, I really want to say that the driver was so really nice, and Ms Quyinh from the Hoi An's travel agency was really supportive all the time, although when my boyfriend forgot his mobile at the car, so everything I can say is only that I have really appreciated all the attention and kindness we have received from you, for sure, I will recommend you for future travels. Thanks a lot!!!

Excellent food, good weather, and we had the boat all to ourselves.

When we arrived at the dock the staff were ready and waiting for us, and as we were the only people on this cruise we were on board and underway straight away. This was our wedding anniversary so having the cruise to ourselves was perfect. There was four courses, all of which were very tasty. Sitting up the front, having white linen service, a good bottle of wine, and slowly cruising downstream made for a perfect dinner. Once it got dark enough and the lanterns were lit it Just got better.

Amazing exerience. One of the best things we did in Vietnam

This was an amazing experience for my wife and I - we loved it - it was recommended to us by friends - They picked us up at our hotel in An Bang Beach area and we collected others along the way, we collected our host Van and made our way to the markets to purchase what we were each going to cook. Fresh and delicious. We had 12 of us so we were fortunate to have 12 unique dishes. We were from Canada, Australia, Holland, Belgium, USA, Germany and other places - we did not know each other when we arrived but we shared an amazing day together and had lots of fun as well. It is great that only one cooks at a time with Van' amazing guidance and input so you all get to learn. Smoother than a Swiss train experience. Absolutely amazing and I cannot say enough about Van and her team - they are rated the best because they are the best - worth every

Have no words can express the feeling...I will visit this lovely island again soon and highly recommend it to all travellers
