After researching Hoi An through a variety of sources we made the decision to add it to one of our stops in Vietnam. I’m so glad we did! It’s a smaller city to spend a couple of days in. Here is a list of just a few things we think you should definitely check out!
Shop at the Night Market
The bright colored lanterns that fill the streets during the night market is what attracted me to this city. There are a variety of handcrafted shops with the perfect souvenirs to take back home or street-cart-food that is worth a try (banana pancakes are a must).
Day trip to My Son
We booked with Onetrip for a day excursion out of Hoi An it was by far the most personal experience in a “tour”. It was just Brian and I and two tour guides, it almost felt like we were just hanging around with new friends. This is whole day experience that will take you on an adventure through the outskirts of Hoi An and to My Son.
Get a tailor-made suit or dress
Have you ever wanted a tailored suit but can’t afford it? Well, this is the place to get anything you want tailored for a very affordable price and great quality. All throughout Hoi An, you will find shops to choose from and if you like something from the window they will make adjustments to fit you perfectly. In fact, I liked something from Pinterest and they made it for me and I picked it up the next day. I wish shopping was this easy back home!
Try the local street food
Don’t be afraid to try the local street food because they are some of the best places to eat and usually cost you less than 5 dollars! Now that a great deal! You can definitely notice that this is where the locals eat when eating out.
Ahhh writing this just makes want to go back to Hoi An! Have you been? What are some of your favorite things you did?
