The ancient town of Hoi An, 30 km south of Danang, lies on the banks of the Thu Bon River. Occupied by early western traders, Hoi An was one of the major trading centers of Southeast Asia in the 16th and 17th centuries, Hội An trading port was the only international trading centre in Southern Vietnam. Foreign merchant boats came to Hội An in great numbers for annual trade fairs, each lasted from 4 to 6 months. Right in this town, traders from Japan, China, Holland, India set up their emporiums or established their owns quarters for permanent habitation.
Thank to fortunate opportunities, the old town of Hội An, a unique concentration of architectural monuments of various forms: living house, assembly hall, communal house, pagoda, shrine, temple, water well, bridge, market, wharf… has been preserved rather intact. They are along the streets that cut one another, forming palaces and giving a good example of symbolic oriental cities in the Middle Age.
The daily life of Hoianians together with their old aged and traditionally well kept habits and customs, its nice natural landscapes, rivers, islands and traditional dishes, have made a great attraction to domestic and international tourists and those who come to do research in the world cultural heritage of Hội An Old Town, a wonderful living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle.
