Sightseeing in Hoi An – Historical Trading Port

Hoi An has been an important trading port since the 7th century. Deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the place still holds on to its traditions reflected in the architecture and other attractions.


Hoi An Traditional Art Performance Theatre

This is a popular family attraction located along Nguyen Thai Hoc Street. A marvellous treat of all the Old Quarter has to offer, the theatre offers performances by traditional Vietnamese artists. Shows take place daily between 9 pm and 10 pm offering free entrance, provided you have bought tickets to enter the Old Quarter. The theatre is not very large but the experience is immense as patrons get a marvellous view of performers. You will be able to well define the dramatic facial expression of the actors as well as enjoy the detailed background set ups.


Old House of Tan Ky

This attraction can be taken on by single or family tourists and is also located in the Old Quarter. The Tan Ky house is a well-preserved example of 18th century houses owned by trading merchants. The name Tan Ky translates to 'progress shop' which is a name chosen by the 2 lot of owners to reflect on the ambitions of the original owner. The place is open from 08:00 to 17:00hrs.


Kim Bong Carpentry Village

Hoi An's Carpentry Village from the 16th century has been famous for its production of wooden furniture and houses across the land. These traditional talents are reflected in the beautiful buildings, royal tombs and Hue Citadel. The carpentry village can be visited on half day tours where visitors are treated to sights of artisans hard at work creating exquisite creations out of wood. Most popular products at the souvenir shops include decorative doors, religious statues and furniture. Prices may vary from a few dollars for an intricate wooden coaster to bigger values asked for skilfully created religious figures.


Tra Que Herb Village

This village is named after the fragrant herbs and vegetables that flavour many of the region's dishes. The Herb Village is just 3kms from the Old Quarter and Anantara Hoi An Resort; part of the well located Hoi An accommodation options you can choose from, for easy access to the Old Quarter and surrounding attractions. Watch local farmers till the fields using traditional methods while the delicious vegetables are a reflection of this hard work; Hoi An's ancient take on organic farming systems. Interestingly the farmers at Tra Que do not use any form of fertilizer; instead, they reap the benefits of a highly nutritious algae that thrives in the lagoon. The place offers unique environs to enjoy, full of colourful flower beds and lush vegetable patches.


Cham Island – Cu Lao Cham

Consisting of 8 small islands that are deemed a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve, the Cu Lao Cham Marine Park is a beautiful environ for enjoying the biodiverse region and topography of mountain slopes. Entrance to the park, a top attraction for all types of visitors is free.
