Hoi An Holidays

Charismatic and utterly enchanting, Hoi An is one of our favourite towns in Vietnam, and should be top of your list if you're planning on visiting this magical destination. 

We love taking a stroll, bike ride or rickshaw through the unique old quarter full of winding lanes and Chinese-style architecture dating all the way back to the 15th century. Mercifully untouched by war and over-development, Hoi An retains a unique sense of history that makes it a true pleasure to explore. Visit the Old Town to see ancient houses, assembly halls and traditional music shows, and wander the many temples that offer an insight into Hoi An's culture and beliefs.

Destination Highlights
  • Japanese Covered Bridge
  • Custom made tailor shops producing a range of clothing
  • A town lit at night by colourful lanterns
  • A romantic ancient town

    "I have been to many Far East destinations but Hoi An is by far one of my favourite, I could go back time after time, it is so pretty, quaint and I just love spending time here. Make sure you incorporate Hoi An into your itinerary."

    "You can definitely still see Hoi An's French and Chinese colonial heritage in the buildings, but one pleasant surprise was the French-inspired cafes and bakeries dotted around the town. One I would recommend is Cocobox."
