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.
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!
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.
