Hoi An Vietnam
My younger brother was looking at me like I’d lost my mind. Out of all the famous places he could visit on his first trip to Vietnam, I insisted he spend most of his time in the central coastal town of Hoi An.
“And this is because of your tailor?” he asked.
Well, not exactly. Hoi An has a bit of everything that makes Vietnam wonderful. Ancient buildings, culture, beaches and, O.K., my tailor. In fact, Hoi An has an entire battalion of tailors and seamstresses who can churn out almost any garment overnight, and they have stacks of catalogs and fabrics for you to choose from.
A bespoke suit goes for a mere 0. Shirts and blouses cost as little as . In between fittings, you can hire a motorcycle and ride to the 1,500-year-old My Son temple ruins, take a cruise on the Hoai River, or sip cocktails on the beach.
In the end, my brother went home not just with a tan but a whole new wardrobe—four suits, one linen jacket, seven dress shirts, five pairs of khakis, six casual linen and cotton shirts, and two silk ties. The cost of this sartorial makeover: ,100. Admitting that his big sister was right: priceless.

Other Hoi An travel tips
Hoi an is indeed a beautiful town but it is small and you run out of things to do quickly. We just found a new business at the bridge in Cua Dai, which is about 3 or 4 K’s from Hoi An. There is a new Jet Ski company that offers tours of the Hoi An River Delta. You can literally ride the jet ski up to the Lao border or go to Chu Lai lagoon. They provide local tours of Hoi An old town and the areas nearer the beach. This is a great service. The freedom and peace of the river, contrast nicely with the hectic, motor bike strewn, noisy street scene. This really is a don’t miss. The price is reasonable as well.

besides the places mentioned above, highly recommended take cycling through Thuan Tinh’s village then get to the beautiful sand beach for relaxing and swimming, if you don’t want to go the beach you should organize a boat before cycling departure, that will come to the wharf at the end of the village where you put the bikes on boat keep sailing to building boat and wood carving village of Kim Bong then back to the water frond of Hoian town
Hoi An Orphanage at 4 Nguyen Truong To Street in Hoi An town centre welcomes visitors. This is government run facility caring for approx 80 children including 25 with cerebral palsy/special needs. Although government run the centre is amazing in terms of care provided. They welcome gifts of toys, books etc & also food which can be purchased at the local market (buy enough for 80!) very cheaply especially fruit. Inspirational!!
