TOUR MAP
ITINERARY BY DAY

Explore Hoi An Ancient Town, a former trading port that welcomed Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab merchants from the 16th to the 18th Centuries. Now one of coastal Vietnam’s most charming towns, Hoi An is home to some of the country’s most beautiful ancient architecture inspired by Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese culture.

Start your stroll through the breezy walking streets lined with honey-yellow buildings, and arrive first at Chua Ong Pagoda. This Chinese-inspired structure dates back to 1653, and its interior still wafts the sweet smell of incense during the day. From here, walk onward to nearby Phuc Kien Assembly Hall and Jinshang Temple, dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea.

After passing by the 200-year old Tan Ky House, take a short break at the Japanese Covered Bridge – one of Hoi An’s most iconic structures. Arrive at Reaching Out Tea House – an establishment that aids locals with disabilities - sit down for a rejuvenating cup of tea before having a tasty lunch accompanied by a cooking demonstration at Green Mango Restaurant. Afterwards, hop on a cyclo and head out toward Cam Thanh Village, a small community located in the outskirts of central Hoi An. There you’ll meet a local family, see their village home, and get a better sense of their way of life. On the nearby river, hop in a bamboo basket boat to visit a water coconut forest before cruising back to central Hoi An. After taking in the stunning scenery along the Thu Bon River, wrap up your journey with a sunset cocktail at a rooftop bar.
