Hoi An
A short drive south of Danang, Hoi An is a spellbinding UNESCO World Heritage Site, with intact 16th-century architecture that celebrates its origins as a trading port that welcomed merchant ships from China, Japan, and Europe. The destination on the Thu Bon River has a number of sights in the Old Town that visitors must check off their list. These include the covered bridge, also known as the Japanese Bridge; gorgeous riverside French colonial buildings; traditional merchant shop-houses; historic pagodas and temples; ornate assembly halls where Chinese immigrants would congregate; and the town's tailors, for a custom garment. But the greatest joy of Hoi An is to wander round its quiet streets—the town center is car-free and a blissfully pleasant place to walk, especially at night when it is lit by red lanterns strung on the exteriors of buildings.
