On day 17, get ready for a scenic drive along the Hai Van pass, one of the most picturesque routes in Vietnam as we travel from Hue to Hoi An. On the way, enjoy the stunning views of the green hills, pristine beaches, and sparkling ocean. Our destination for the next 2.5 days is Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its well-preserved architecture, cultural traditions, and silk tailor shops.
Hoi An is famous for its street food scene and local delicacies, such as Cao Lau, Banh Mi, and Mi Quang. Take a cooking class, and learn how to cook these dishes from the local chefs who use fresh ingredients and traditional techniques. Not only will we have fun, but we’ll also get to taste our delicious creations.
My Son, located about 40 km from Hoi An, is a complex of abandoned Hindu temples built by the Champa kingdom from the 4th to the 14th century. The temples are surrounded by lush greenery and a tranquil river, making it a perfect place for nature lovers and history buffs. We can take a guided tour, explore the ruins at our own pace, and learn about the ancient civilization who built these stunning structures.
Hoi An is also famous for its silk tailor shops, where we can get custom-made clothes at a fraction of the cost compared to the Western countries. Whether we need a new suit, dress, or shirt, the local tailors can make it for us in a matter of days. Choose from a vast array of fabrics, designs, and styles, and get a perfect fit that suits our taste and budget. We’ll leave Hoi An with a unique souvenir and memories to cherish.
