My Photo Gallery: The Ancient Town Of Hoi An, Vietnam


Hoi An Ancient town is located in Vietnam's central Quang Nam Province on the north bank near the mouth of Thu Bon River. 
Hoi An thrived as a trading port during the 15th-19th century. The buildings and streets in the town reflects a fusion of both local and foreign cultures, principally Chinese and Japanese. This town is very well preserved, retaining most of its original structures. It was enlisted a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.

Hoi An Ancient Town is characterised by narrow streets and houses built mostly side by side in neat rows. These houses are unanimously painted in one colour which is yellow. The streets are mostly pedestrianized with the exception of non-motorised vehicles like the trishaws and bicycles. The town is very touristy and a little over-commercialized. 

The nearest international airport to Hoi An is Danang International Airport located about 30km away.
