#TRAVEL – Vietnam: Habitable Hoi An

If you only have the chance to visit one place in Vietnam, make it Hoi An.

Hoi An is an ancient town, located on the coast in central Vietnam.

It’s one of those places where you stay a lot longer than initially intended. I think I ended up staying 3 days longer than planned. If it wasn’t for a flight booked to Singapore, I could have easily made it 30.

Hoi An is a well known hotspot on the Vietnam backpacker’s route which doesn’t shove the tourism down your throat like so many other places. However, it does have the perks of a popular place; alot of things to do!

You can literally just rent a bike (push or motor, depending on how lazy you feel) and ride around for hours absorbing the European style architecture and picturesque sights.

Bursting with nice restaurants and quirky bars, the streets are alive night and day!

It also possesses a beach, which is a pretty nice place to lay with Mrs.Sunshine and drink a few beers inbetween cooling off in the blue ocean.

Hoi An would be considered the ‘whole package’ to many backpackers. It has a lot of history, many activities to do and things to see, good nightlife and a beach!

It’s a winner!

  1. Hoi An sounds great. I know a small town probably a little further to the north called Qui Nhon. It had nothing at all to do except walk along the beach and eat and drink. The town people were very laid back, and would crowd the beach from 5 in the evening until pretty late at night. Lovely place for a holiday.
