UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site
Hoi An Old Town is about 30 kilometers from the city of Da Nang. This is an ancient city filled with ethnic Chinese architecture and people. Dotted with Chinese and Japanese-style buildings, there are a number of mutually beneficial societies including the Fujian Society, the Guangzhou-Zhaoqing Society, the Huizhou Society, the Hainan Society and the Chinese Society. During daylight hours, Hoi An Old Town is bustling. Consider strolling along the streets poking your head into the small shops or stopping for a cup of coffee in a café. Once night falls, Hoi An Old Town is very charming. It transforms into a world of lanterns lit in a variety of colors. Wherever you look, lanterns of all shapes and sizes are hung high illuminating the street below.
