As you know, Hoi An is a living museum that preserves old-town architecture and was formerly a prominent Southeast Asian commercial port in the 16th and 17th centuries. Chinese temples, a Japanese-designed bridge, pagodas, wooden shop houses, French-colonial houses, and old canals are just a few of the historic structures. Despite the fact that large-scale trading had long migrated elsewhere, Hoi An was successful in conserving and restoring its picturesque roots, and in December 1999, it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The greatest time to see Hoi An Riverside is at night, when the region is illuminated by charming and old-fashioned lanterns, creating an intriguing and beautiful atmosphere. Hoi An is also recognized for its delicious meals and enjoyable shopping. To help you explore Hoi An, Premium Travel Vietnam organizes Hoi An City Tour.
