Hoi An Photo Gallery
Hoi An Ancient Town is incredibly picturesque with its colourful buildings and delicate lanterns hanging in every direction; you’re sure to leave with thousands of Hoi An photos.
The town gets swamped with tourists especially at night when the town is particularly atmospheric. Lanterns light up, candles float along the river and happy hours in every bar are definitely encouraging. Even with the crowds, exploring Hoi An’s old town is never a dull day.
A few tips before our Hoi An photos:
- If you’re incredibly broke, there isn’t a need to buy a ticket as there’s no-one to check them at every entrance. But of course, the fee helps maintain the UNESCO World Heritage site.
- If you want to enter the Japanese bridge the standard way, there’s no chance without a ticket. However, if you walk around the river and enter the bridge from the back, there’s nobody to check your ticket.
- We stayed in ‘Phoenix Homestay’ and definitely recommend this hotel. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was very clean with a smart TV which meant Netflix (a chance to catch up on Orange is the New Black). There’s also free bike rental and it’s in close proximity to the Ancient Town.
- Our favourite places to eat/drink were Banh Mi Queen (we ate here every day without fail), Pho Xua and Rosie’s Cafe.
