Discover Hoi An, a crossroads of cultures

CultureVietnam

The meeting of cultures in Hoi An turns this city into an open-air museum. You will become aware of this as you walk the streets of the old town, where Chinese and Japanese silk road traders reconstructed pieces of their homelands over time. The Old House of Tan Ky, a two-hundred-year-old residence in the heart of Hoi An, is a perfect example. Here, you can admire a mixture of architectural styles specific to these cultures. In the 17th century, the Chinese community even built an assembly hall for its expatriates: the incredible Phuc Kien Temple. Our local agencies recommend that you visit!

Like many port cities, the rivers that run through Hoi An are lively and essential places to live. If you have sea legs, you can take a basket boat trip to enjoy an authentic experience and discover the Thu Bon River in the most traditional way.

If you prefer the mainland, but still want to immerse yourself in the city's history, visit the Japanese pagoda bridge. This landmark was built by prominent Japanese residents in the 7th century to connect the Japanese and Chinese districts.
