Hoi An is a quaint town about half an hour’s drive from Danang. The ancient town of Hoi An is a well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. It is especially beautiful at night when the colourful lanterns are lit everywhere in the small town.
We made a daily pilgrimage to Hoi An from our resort in Danang, drawn by its fantastic food and shopping (especially for ladies!). It is a great place to get tailored clothing, and dresses, casual wear.
We had good finds at amazingly low prices daily, including 2 pairs of casual shorts which I bought for USD 3 (for two). Managed to get an evening gown for USD 45 and an office dress for USD 25!
Food in Hoi An was much better than Danang. Morning Glory is a restaurant you should not miss. Food is fantastic and prices are very reasonable. We also had one of the best Bahn Mi (baguette sandwich) in Hoi An, a shop that was featured by Anthony Bordain!
