HOI AN Overview
 

One of Vietnam’s most historic towns, Hoi An. 30 kilometres south of Danang, was a noted seaport as far back as the 2nd century. Its era of greatest prosperity, however, was between the 15th and 19th centuries when European, American and Asian shops called at the port to purchase high-grade silk and other exotic cargoes.


Hoi An was eclipsed by Danang as a port and centre of commerce early in the present century. But the clocks had stopped before that and, with temples merchants’ houses and many other venerable structures miraculously preserved, parts of the town appear today much as they must have been a century or more ago.
