Hội An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. If you choose Vietnam as the joy destination for your holiday, don’t miss out Hoi An.
In 1999 Hoi An was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as a well-preserved example of a southeast asian trading port of the 15th to 19th centuries.
This picture was taken in the second time I came back Hoi an, still the same feeling, an old town with ancient beauty. People are friendly, food variety is very big, and when the sun set, Hoi an cover itself by a color light coat. You will lose yourself inside this beauty when thousands of lights are turned on, when the night life is starting, restaurants, coffee shops and everything is very live and active, music everywhere and you hear a country song by lovely local people.
Hoi An has two main seasons during the year: rainy and dry seasons, with a warm average temperature of 29 °C through the year. The hottest period is from June to August when the highest temperature can reach 38 °C during day time. November to January will be the coldest months with an average temperature of 20 °C. and this is best time to visit Hoi An.
In just few hours, you will find yourself already done many things in Hoi An. As I am a biker, I loved renting a bicycle rounding the town, you can take amazing photos almost in every corner of the city, you can make thousands of photos in this holiday!
One of the favorite places for me and my friends is Faifo Coffee house. It has an open air rooftop and overlooking to the cannel where you can see a lot of boats sailing, chilled with a cup of Vietnamese coffee and enjoy the light music. It’s a wonderful ambience there.
And when you are tired and hunger knock your tummy, Hoi An will not make you disappointed. I liked so much the Banh Mi, a Vietnamese sandwich, made of a French baguette, pâté, meats and fresh herbs. It is a fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisine.
My other choice was the “Cao Lầu”, made of rice noodles, meat, greens, bean sprouts, and herbs, most commonly served with a small amount of broth. The water for the broth has been traditionally taken from the Ba Le Well, thought to have been built in the 10th century. And as I mentioned the variety is really big, you can try “ Mi Quang noodles, Banh Bao Banh Vac, Hoanh Thanh, Com Ga (chicken with rice), Bánh Xèo, sweet corn soup and baby clam salad.
Apart from landscape and food, Hoi An people are makes you feel like you are part of the family, they are supper friendly and ready to always give a hand.
I was totally captivated from the minute I stepped in Hoi An, I believe many tourists had the same feeling like me and if you ask I will again visit Hội An again, I will definitely say’ Yes”
