Hoi An Ancient Town

It is a big jump of the charming city Hoi An from its No. 8 position last year to the top of the list. Hoi An is an ancient city located in the central part of Vietnam, on the coast of East Vietnam Sea. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations of the country that should not be missed on any Vietnam private tours. From the 16th to 19th centuries the riverside town of Hoi An attracted silk, spice and porcelain merchants from as far as Japan, India, Indonesia and Europe.

Hoi An is a beautifully preserved city with ancient remnants, distinct architecture, a contagious energy, and arguably one of the best street food scenes on the planet. The beautiful surrounding countryside and unspoilt beaches also imbue the whole area with a very restful, rustic charm. Hoi An was recognized as the World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Moreover, the local people in Hoi An are so friendly and always eager to share with tourists the very best of what their city has to offer.

Tours in Hoi An

There is a wide range of accommodations in Hoi An, from the budget guest houses and hostels to middle-range hotels and luxurious resorts like Four Seasons Nam Hai.  In recent years, the ancient city has experienced a resurgence and revitalization thanks to young and worldly locals who are opening regionally-focused restaurants, experimental cocktail bars, and trendy boutiques.

The highlight of a trip to Hoi An is undoubtedly the vibrant food scene that was praised mostly by the readers of Travel + Leisure.
