Best time to visit

To truly immerse yourself in the coastal beauty surrounding Mui Ne Fishing Village, the best time to visit is probably early mornings. This is the time when local fishermen return with their night’s catch and the area is a hub of activity. Alternatively, late afternoon is also a good time to head there.

Highlights that await

Bring your cameras or phones along cause there is plenty to capture; the fishermen sorting their daily haul of fish and crabs on the beach and the bay dotted with colourful vessels including the traditional round shaped boat known as the coracle. Certain resorts like Anantara Mui Ne Resort even give you the chance to head out with fishermen in a coracle boat to try some fishing for yourself!

Foodie delights

Of course, no visit is complete without sampling some of the delicious seafood on offer. There are plenty of restaurants and food carts along the shore serving grilled seafood and other local delicacies worth trying out.

First Timer’s Travel Guide to Hoi An – A Simple Yet Magical City

Vietnam is one country full of surprises when it comes to places to visit! For the traveller at heart, Hoi An is a place you are sure to appreciate for the wonderful Vietnamese culture that is seen here.

A peaceful meeting place

Hoi An was a famous trading port back in the day, where many merchants from China, Japan and later Europeans lived. These foreign cultures melded together creating a unique set of values in this part of Vietnam.

Weather patterns

Contradictory to the northern part of Vietnam that goes by the 4 seasons, Hoi An has only 2 seasons throughout the year which is the dry season (February – August) and the wet season (September – January). The best month to visit would be April when the weather is perfect!

Getting there

Once you land at Da Nang International Airport, you can take a taxi straight to Hoi An. There are also buses, shuttle service and even airport transfers provided by a few hotels in Hoi An as well.

How long to stay

The very best of Hoi An can be experienced in as short as a period of three days. Do keep in mind that most places are closed during the Tet holiday and hotel rates in places like Anantara Hoi An Resort are at its highest. Therefore, it is advisable not to visit between the end of January and early February.
