5 Fun things to do in Hoi An – For a holiday that’s out of this world!

If you are a traveller seeking that one spot that almost feels like you've stepped into a whole new world, Hoi An is the place for your next visit. One could never not fall in love with this charming city. If you are interested in finding out more, read on.


Bask in the sun

No traveller can resist the sun when there is an amazing beach out there waiting for you! The beaches in Hoi An are pristine and clean. There are several beaches here that are alluring, and you are free to grab your tote bag full of items for a day at the beach and simply head over. You could lay down on the soft sand in the heat of the day, close your eyes and simply listen to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Or you could always get in the water for a few splashes and a whole lot of fun. An Bang and Cua Dai beaches are the main spots to hang out here. There are plenty of restaurants by the seaside in case you work up an appetite.


Indulge in local dishes

Hoi An is undoubtedly the food capital of Vietnam with many restaurants serving up some of the most amazing local food. Top restaurants in Hoi An have a menu item called the white rose. If you are wondering what this is, it is a sort of shrimp dumpling that is made in the shape of a rose. Makes sense now doesn't it? It is a delicate snack but indeed a scrumptious one! Art Space Hoi An and the likes are available with various options when it comes to what to eat. Head over for a meal and experience what Vietnam is all about through flavours.


Get a customised outfit

If you didn't already know, Hoi An is popular for tailored suits and dresses. Tailor shops are quite common, and the clothing is really cheap in this city. But keep in mind that you get what you pay for in Hoi An, so be wary about the quality of the material used. BeBe, Yaly Couture and Bao Khan Sil are a few places that are recommended for high quality and reasonable pricing as well.


A day trip to Danang

Not just within the borders of Hoi An, but there is much to explore around this city as well. If you are already staying in Hoi An, then why not make it to Danang for a day trip? The city has come up well as part of the development plan of Vietnam. Still, Danang also has the perfect balance between the old and the new. The best way to explore the city is by foot. Walk by the beachfront and you'll see the modern buildings, but the archaic ones are hidden as you make your way deeper into the city.


Typical Vietnam

If you've imagined blue skies, paddy fields and water buffalos when you hear the name Vietnam, then you'll see it all in Hoi An of course! Rent out a bike and ride through the streets and you'll see all of it but beware of scammers who charge exorbitant amounts if you take a picture with their water buffalo!
