Hoi An Prices & Travel Costs

Last Updated: Jan 2024

With a former Chinese fishing village at its core, Hoi An is impossibly charming and it often becomes the top highlight of any tour of Vietnam. Since it’s much smaller than Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An feels much more relaxed. This is a touristy place for sure, but it’s also very pleasant and an amazing travel bargain.

Is Hoi An Expensive or Cheap?

As delightful and worthwhile as it is, Hoi An is still quite cheap, even by Vietnamese standards. Hotel standards are quite high for the star levels you’ll see, with even 1-star hotels usually having air-con, cable TV, fridge, and sometimes even in-room Wi-Fi included. If you are up for a bit of a splurge then you can find a place with manicured grounds and/or a swimming pool.
