Hoi An

"This place seems to be the perfect blend, mixing your time between wandering the ancient town and chilling on the beach

 

Everything may be as they say, "same same, but different," which definitely adds to the charm

 

 All at ease, life on the river seems to create the perfect pace

 

The full moon festival is beautiful, light a candle at night, set it afloat and watch it go in a glow"

- IN -

  • Villa Hoa Su - this stunning garden oasis makes for a unique, intimate experience. Rooms with an outdoor bathtub were a nice plus!

  • Riverside Bamboo Resort - set by the palm flanked river with only a few rooms felt very homey. Breakfast at the garden gazebo by the water was a daily highlight and the complimentary bikes made it all so convenient to kick off the days of exploring. 

  • Hoi An Ancient House Village Resort & SPA - this hotel has a combination of Cham and Vietnamese style and architecture, it is surrounded by lush green gardens and plantations. The pool area poured over the rice field creating beautiful views. 

- OUT -

  • Walking - Simply walking through Hoi An is an experience. There are so many tucked away alleyways full of charm and character. 

  • Cam Thanh Village - biking was a great way to explore and discover the places outside the ancient town. Cam Thanh neighborhoods and rice paddies are a lovely area to get lost in and experience the village life.

  • Bamboo Basket boat - we took a long bike ride to the village, then hired a round bamboo basked boat to float through the coconut flanked waterways. 

  • Terracotta Pottery park - the staff is amazing. We had a complimentary private tour of the museum and grounds (not sure if it's usually free, or if the lovely girl just wanted to practice her English and chat). They also have a ceramic workshop where you can make your own piece. The museum architecture was surprisingly modern and beautiful. 

  • Reaching Out Tea House - absolutely my favorite place in Hoi An. Enter this silent old-world tea house, place your orders using wooden blocks, and get inspired by the amazing staff, most of who suffer from hearing or speech impairments. The artwork and atelier at their second location is equally stunning.   

- EATS & DRINKS - 

  • Tra Que Village - it's one of our favorite places to eat in Hoi An. From garden to table, we enjoyed the freshest food and lovely staff. 

  • Nu Eatery - a hidden gem! This tiny charming spot prepares amazing local food in a homey setting.  

  • Mai Fish - in a quiet part of main street, Mai Fish has a beautiful terrace facing the river. They serve traditional Vietnamese food and have a great Bahn Mi! 

  • Field Restaurant - surrounded by rice fields and set by the river, we had a nice al fresco dinner while sipping on their delicious signature cocktails.  

  • Food Market Stalls - we ventured into the food market and were not disappointed. Tried the traditional Cao Lau dish (pork, noodles, and local greens) and it was very flavorful and delicious.

  • Q bar - a funky bar and lounge downtown. Loved that they project old movies on the storefront gate across the street after other businesses are closed, it sets the mood for the cool vibe.

  • Dive Bar - "dive" for "diving" but chill nonetheless. Great spot with live music, pool table and a nice backyard
