// foto focus // hoi an - daylight

Lovely little Hoi An was one of my highlights of our tour through Vietnam last December. Located 30 km south of Danang, it is one of the few Vietnamese towns that was not bombed to the ground during the war.
So nowadays the charming town features old french architecture, lovely cafes, restaurants and bakeries and amazing little shops. Loved it there! Another plus is that the ocean and the beach is nearby and easily reachable by bike.

Surrounded by lush rice paddies, small local villages and vegetable farms it is a great day trip to hire a scooter and just stumble through the neighborhoods - you will not be disappointed by the charme of Hoi An.

  5. These pictures are lovely! After hearing so much about Hoi An, I'm finally heading there myself in 2 weeks - your pictures are great previews!

  6. I have traveled many places around SE Asia, but never made it to Vietnam. I have heard such good things about Hoi An, and these pictures reinforce my desire to go there.

  7. We're having to decide Hoi An or Luang Prabang at Christmas. So far I think we're going to LP but your photos make me wonder if that's the right decision! Love your blog, BTW.
