Top Tourist Attractions in Hoi An - A wealth of rich discoveries awaits you in the charming world heritage city

A city stuck in the heyday of ancient Vietnamese history, where river canals slither in serenity and striking architecture brightens up the scene— Hoi An really does take you to a paradisiacal world far from reality. Venture out into the old-world city where rich discoveries await.


Hoi An Ancient Town - Get lost in enviable history on quaint streets

30 hectares of breathtaking old-world charm, the well preserved, picturesque Ancient Town of Hoi An takes you back in time to a dreamlike bygone setting, where words cannot do justice to its mind-blowing magnificence. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the enchanting historical quarter is a melting pot of different cultures, evident by its diverse architecture—the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge, wooden Chinese shophouses, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and colourful French colonial buildings that line the quaint streets. Take a stroll on the scenic riverside, watch as the sunset descends upon the townscape and lose yourself in the tranquil ambience.


Japanese Covered Bridge - Feast your eyes on the remarkable ancient architecture

Stretch your stroll in the Ancient Town to the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge nestled within the confines of the same protected sanctuary. The most impressive mark the Japanese left in Hoi An, the Japanese Covered Bridge, is the most visited tourist attraction in the city. Millions of tourists flock to this striking landmark to admire its incredible Japanese architecture that dates back over four centuries. The 18-metre long bridge may not be big in size, but its splendour is beyond magnificent, especially at night when the lantern-like lamps light up, the slithering Thu Bon River takes the colour of various reflecting lights and the skies set the perfect backdrop.


An Bang Beach - Unwind in the serenity of the scenic seaside

Your slice of sun, sand, and sea in Hoi An lies at the stunning beach of An Bang. Pristine soft white sand, swaying palm trees, and enthralling turquoise blue waters define this stretch of gorgeous beach paradise. Sun lovers and beach bums whose hearts have been stolen by the scenic seascape can find a 5 star hotel in Hoi An just a hop, skip, and a jump away, such as the Anantara Hoi An Resort, to set up base closer to the charming seaside.


My Son Sanctuary - May the exotic ruins make you feel a world away

Head out west of Hoi An to make a wonderful day trip to the My Son Sanctuary. A scattering of Hindu temples that dates back to the golden days between the 4th and 13th centuries, sprawling across a whopping 140 hectares, My Son Sanctuary really does make you lost in a world far away.


Hoi An Night Market - Indulge in a dose of Vietnamese style retail therapy

As the sun goes down and the darkness descends upon you, countless vendors flock to Nguyen Hoang Street, lining the street with colourful stalls. Make your way to the Hoi An Night Market and let the foodie inside of you relish in some mouthwatering street foods as your inner shopaholic picks out a few authentic Vietnamese souvenirs and clothing to take back home.
