Hoi An is a beautiful city in Vietnam, just south of Da Nang. The Old Town of Hoi An is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some of the Hoi An Ancient Town houses have been converted into shops, restaurants, art galleries. Entry to Hoi An downtown is free, but the entry to historic sites is via a coupon system, coupons can be used to enter five attractions: museums, old houses, assembly halls, the handicraft workshop (and traditional music show) or the traditional theatre, and either the Japanese Covered Bridge or the Quan Cong Temple. Tickets are sold at various entry points into the Old Town.
Whilst many people may be tempted or recommended to stay at the beach in Hoi An, I prefer to stay in town just on the outskirts of the old town. The hotel we stayed at provided bicycles and we easily biked into the old town each day. What makes it even better is that motorbikes are banned from the streets of the old town during certain times of the day so it makes for exploring the streets on push bike divine. Most days we biked into the Cargo Club for a coffee and pastry, before exploring for the day, YUM!
