Hoi An Honeymoon Guide
Be captivated by the charming town of Hoi An, with its rich cultural heritage, beautifully preserved merchants’ houses, pagodas, ancient wells, tombs and slow pace of life.
Explore the narrow streets of Hoi An’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. The picturesque streets and lanes are lined with faithfully restored, historic buildings that have been transformed into open-air craft shops, cafes, art galleries and souvenir shops. Many streets are off-limit to cars.
Soak up the atmosphere in the Chinese-influenced Old Quarter, take a cruise along the scenic Thu Bon River or cycle into the surrounding countryside.
Relax on Cua Dai Beach, a 30km crescent of pristine white sand that stretches all the way up the coast to Danang or surf off Non Nuoc beach, known as China Beach by US GIs who surfed there while on R&R during the Vietnam War.
Take a day trip to nearby My Son and view the atmospheric Cham ruins – all that remain of the once-powerful Champa Kingdom (above photo).
Examine carvings at Marble Mountain, a limestone outcropping among the rice paddies 21km north of Hoi An or trek up to Huyen Khong Cave, a wartime base for Vietcong guerrillas.
Later, savour Hoi An’s mouthwatering specialty dishes of shrimp pancake and cao lu, a dish of rice noodles topped with slices of roast pork.
Hoi An offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets.
