Hoi An, Viet Nam Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

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.
