Hội An, Quang Nam Province, Vietnam
While Hanoi is the bia hoi capital of Vietnam, it doesn't have a monopoly on the world's cheapest beer. Hoi An is also a great place to enjoy a few glasses of the good stuff. There are several bia hoi outlets around town -- just look out for the...
Lô 9B, Tp. Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam
A fantastic place to end a day or to while away the afternoon hours, Soul Kitchen is one of the best options on An Bang Beach. The menu offers a decent mix of European and Vietnamese dishes, while the venue is a favourite for local and visiting...
51 Lê Lợi, Phường Minh An, Hội An, Quảng Nam 560000, Vietnam
