Hoi An Arrival Day
This is the perfect spot to start an adventure in Vietnam. Filled with delicious food, erupting with cheap shopping, close to the beach and flat enough to cycle around easily. Hoi An, previously known as Faifo, was a trading port for the Japanese, Chinese, Dutch and Indians from the 15th to 17th Century. The town is one of very few this far north that escaped unscarred by the war, so the architecture in unique. The Old Town is UNESCO world Heritage Listed and is one of the few places in the country to find relief from motorised traffic.
