We stayed 3 nights in Hoi An in January 2016 and as part of a 2 week trip to Vietnam with my husband, Hoi An was the absolute highlight for me.
The charming Old Quarter is heavily controlled with limitations on signage and vehicles so it is quite a break from the constant scooter and taxi traffic of many other tourist areas. Strolling through at night is sheer delight with the strings of lanterns and vibrant street vendors and artistic displays.
My only criticism is more to do with a sad lack of variety in shops (a bazillion tailors and same same souvenir outlets).
Get away from the hustle of the motorbikes and walk the streets of Ancient town free of theses two wheel, modern day rodents. Many temples and community houses are preserved and lived in continuously by 5 generations. Try and ignore the touts and souvenir sellers and concentrate on the architecture of the shops, houses and the famous Japanese bridge. Architecture…
Great atmosphere. Fantastic old buildings and architecture, olus som much history. Lots of things to do around town for a one day tour. Good shopping and superb restaurants. No nightlife.
Lots of fun and great food in the marketplace. I enjoyed the Hoi An historical museum and learned about the early people of this region and their customs. Everything is close and convient, and I was easily able to do a walking tour. And the shops are some of the best I found in all of Vietnam.
