Hoi An is one of our favorite towns in Vietnam. It is the most beautiful and magical historical town, featuring fabulous white sand beaches, great food, and many resorts to stay. In this post, I will be outlining the standout spots I visited with my family in Hoi An.
Historic sites of the Ancient Town
Hoi An’s ancient town is one of the most charming, old quarters in Vietnam. Its architecture is a mix of French, Chinese, and Japanese designs. This enchanted town has hundreds of colorful lanterns hanging everywhere, making it look magical day and night. Technically, everyone over the age of 16 has to buy tickets to see the old town. However, no one really checks it unless you visit historical sites, which are included with the card. The ticket fee goes towards funding conservation work in the old town. Tickets include entry to 5 out of 22 sites and a traditional performance held daily at 5 pm. My kids enjoyed this show!
Are you looking for stunning, dramatic landscapes? Maybe you’d like to wander sandy beaches next to crystal-clear water or tour floating fishing villages? If you’re looking for a family-friendly adventure that mixes traditional experiences with all the modern luxuries, then Halong Bay is the perfect place for you! During my life, I’ve seen many breathtaking pictures of Halong Bay’s stunning landscape. When my family planned our trip to Vietnam, visiting Halong Bay wasn’t an option, it was a necessity.
Our two-night, three-day cruise arranged a luxury van to pick us up from our Hanoi hotel early in the morning. We reached Halong Bay in the early afternoon, and then the adventure began. From hidden caves to panoramic views, Halong Bay is a must-see for adventurers of all types!
