Hoi An is a destination with two faces - the charming, old-world trading port of narrow streets and traditional houses, and the beach with its new resorts and long stretch of clean white sand. In keeping with Hoi An's heritage as a trading port, the town's tiny shophouses now host a range of craft shops and artisans including some of Asia's best bespoke tailors. Despite the passing of 200 years and the ravages of weather and war, the centre of Hoi An remains much the same as it was in its heyday.

To reach Hoi An, drive along one of the most spectacular roads in Vietnam which winds along the coast with magnificent views of beaches to one side and lush hills to the other. This half day journey is often a highlight of a Vietnam tour for photographers, with plenty of opportunities to stop at rustic fishing villages to meet with the locals can capture amazing images of the scenery.

Abercrombie & Kent's Hoi an and Danang holidays are the perfect way to explore this magnificent region.

Guest Testimonial

Thank you for organising a fantastic holiday (Annie Jensen) The guides and drivers were helpful considerate and polite. All the guides were informative in their own way which we found interesting. As we passed the children they were delighted to see us and practice their English 'Hello'. We spoke to local people and children, everybody was very pleasant. The cycling distances were just right, we had time to stop and take photo's and admire the scenery. It was just superb!
