Hoi An, the historic city, is recognized as an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. The architectural designs and streets of Hoi An reflect influences of both foreign and indidenous cultures. This unique blend is the reason why UNESCO has also declared Hoi An as a World Heritage Site.
The city of Hoi An completely justifies its meaning, 'Peaceful Meeting Place'.Yellow walls, old wooden houses of Chinese merchants, colorful lanterns, small shops, proximity to a lovely beach and a quiet countryside is what describes this peaceful town. It was love at first sight. We spent a couple of days in Hoi An, but we regret why we didn't spend more time.
