Hội An is a beautiful city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. Vietnam’s most atmospheric and delightful city, the Old Town of Hoi An is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city also possessed the largest harbour in south-east Asia in the 1st century and was known as Lâm Ấp Phố (Champa City), which controlled the strategic spice trade with Indonesia from the 7th to the 10th century and was a major international port in the 16th and 17th centuries - and the foreign influences are discernible to this day.
