Hoi An is possibly one of my all time favourite towns in the world.
I have never spent time anywhere with so much atmosphere and so much beauty.
Sadly, we didn’t spend very long in Hoi An as we had to get back up to Hanoi to catch our flight home. Cry. The few days that we did get to explore were just beautiful.
First up was an excursion to the My Son ruins – a fabulous ancient tomb and temple complex owing its origins to Indian Hinduism. As a theology student, and even then as a mere ALevel kid, I absolutely adored it.
The town itself is also incredible. Gorgeous winding streets full of little shops and vibrant markets, lanterns hanging high and bright in the evening and the bustling river through the centre of town. Delicious food and wonderful people. I cannot recommend Hoi An enough to anyone.
If I am ever lucky enough to be given the chance to return, I would take it in a heartbeat.
