I have travelled to Hoi An twice and still want to come back again and again. This is my favorite destination because everything here is so beautiful and lovely. If you are looking for some information about your next trip to Hoi An, read my article until the end.

I visited Hoi An during March, the most beautiful time in Hoi An. The sky was clear with some lightly wind. There was neither rain nor storm, everything seems perfect during this month. However, do not worry if you cannot come in March, February and April should be the alternative times for your choices. And remember to avoid coming from August to December due to rainy season.
A small tip for you, on the 14th day of the Lunar Calendar monthly, locals will turn off their electric lights and light up lanterns. Some people also drop some floating lights on Thu Bon River as if making a wish for themselves. At this moment, the ancient town becomes extremely beautiful and romantic.
++ By Air
There is no airport in Hoi An, so you cannot flight directly there. First, you need to catch a flight to Da Nang (1,5 hour) and then transfer by taxi or public bus to Hoi An (it is 30km away – about 40 minutes driving). Average price for this trip is about 1,500,000 VND (64USD)
++ By Bus
Because there is no direct transfer from Saigon to Hoi An, you must take a bus to Nha Trang (8 hours transfer), then take another bus to Hoi An (12 hours transfer). However, I would not recommend you go this way, it takes a long time on the bus, and you will be very tired.

To book low-price accommodation, I recommend you try these booking websites: Agoda, Booking.com, Airbnb and some local pages such as Luxstay, vntrip.vn. Prices are always cheaper than booking at the hotel’s front desk. Last time I booked a room in Hoi An with a 61% discount. It was 288,000VND per night only (my hotel had a swimming pool as well).
In Hoi An, there are many interesting places located near each other, so that you can easily go around by bicycle (or by motorbike). At my hotel, they have some good bike for rent at 30,000VND/ 1 bike/ 1 day. These are some must-see destinations in Hoi An:
Hoi An Ancient Town Hoi An is famous for its beautiful ancient town, this is also the most crowded place in Hoi An. Coming here, you can take a walk along the old streets and enjoy the typical features of ancient house architecture which follows the Japanese and Chinese style more or less. Traveling to Hoi An, you should visit the ancient houses of Quan Thang, Tan Ky, Phung Hung. These ancient houses are 150 years old and are considered the most charming houses in Hoi An they have remained almost intact.
Cua Dai Beach Cua Dai Beach is 5km far away from the ancient town. Its water is clean, its sand is white, and its coconut trees are very green and fresh. Coming here, you can order a coconut, lie on a lounge beach chair and enjoy the light waves of the ocean.
Cham Island This island is my favorite destination when traveling to Hoi An. The wildness and clear blue water attract me the most. There are some interesting activities for you: snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and swimming.
