5 Drinks to Cool You Down in Hoi An – Here’s How You Can Quench that Thirst

Hoi An is an incredible city to explore – there's many historical landmarks and attractions to discover here. All of this exploring can leave you quite thirsty due to Vietnam's tropical weather, so here are a couple of tasty beverages you can try as you tour through Hoi An.


Sugar Cane Juice

If you've been travelling around Hoi An for a little while, you're sure to have spotted the dozens of sugar cane stands that dot the city's streets. It's a good thing too as there's nothing quite like some fresh sugar cane juice to help you cool down under the warm tropical sun. The juice itself is made by crushing sugar cane stalks via machine or by hand. It may seem like such a drink would just be an overload of sugar, the resulting beverage is actually quite mild in flavour and not at all unhealthy. Here in Vietnam, a glass of sugar cane juice is often enjoyed with a splash of kumqat which gives it a citrous-like flavour. Add in a few ice cubes and you're good to go!


Green Tea

If you're planning to eat at one of the restaurants Hoi An has to offer – for instance, the Art Space Hoi An – you won't have too much trouble finding a warm cup of green tea. Green tea is by no means unique to Vietnam and is enjoyed by people the world over. It is incredibly popular here in Vietnam however, both with tourists and the locals. Green tea is lauded for all the health benefits that come with it, but it's also quite a tasty beverage in its own right. With things often getting hot and humid here in Hoi An, a tea break is always welcome – so, be sure to enjoy a cup yourself during your travels.


Boba Tea

Green Tea isn't the only beverage that's enjoyed in Hoi An during tea time – a cup of boba tea is a must-try during your visit. This beverage originated in Taiwan but has since become quite popular in Vietnam. It is essentially a bubbly version of milk tea that's chilled and served with ice. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can try adding some tapioca balls of fruit jelly into your tea! All in all, this is one of the best ways to keep cool and energised here in Hoi An.


Passion Fruit Juice

If some citrusy goodness is what you look for in your beverages, you can't go wrong with a glass of fresh passion fruit juice. Passion fruit thrives under the warm tropical climate of Vietnam, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that this beverage is readily available all across Hoi An.


Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Vietnam is actually the second largest coffee producer in the world, so you definitely want to try some of it out during your time here in Hoi An. While there are all kinds of variations to choose from, delicious iced coffee served with milk might just be the way to go.
