Hoi An Ancient Town is a very popular stop for those touring the country, and it ends up being the trip highlight for a great number of those. The old town is a perfectly preserved Chinese-style fishing village, and the city is as filled with great and cheap restaurants as it is with tailor shops. It’s cheaper than Saigon, except that you have to stay in a hotel instead of a hostel…”.
