An Attractive Hoi an Nightlife
Located to the south of Da Nang is Hoi An, one of the most beautiful cities in Vietnam. During the 16th and 17th centuries, it was one of Vietnam’s most important international ports. Today the old town area is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. The houses, public buildings, and shops have been beautifully restored since the Vietnam War and there is an excellent assortment of Hoi An hotels for you to stay at. Needless to say, the city offers international travellers numerous attractions to enjoy.
Central Market – situated on the southeast side of the city near the river is one of the most fascinating markets in the country. Although you can find better bargains at other markets, there are numerous stalls of exotic foodstuffs and silk handicrafts to enjoy.
Japanese Covered Bridge – first constructed in the 1600’s, it is still unknown as to who the builder of this structure was but the consensus is that it was constructed by the Japanese community that had settled in Hoi An. It has been renovated a number of times since it was built.
Riverside Museum of History and Culture – considering the fact that this structure was built in 1635; it does not look too bad for its age. Here you will see ancient ceramics, artefacts that span 20 centuries of Vietnamese history, and photographs of local and unique architecture.
Museum of Trade Ceramics – a traditional house that describes Hoi An’s history through ceramics and labels them in English as well as Vietnamese.
