Hoi-An

The historical town of Hoi-An was Vietnam's most important port between the 16th and 18th centuries, attracting merchants from as far afield as China, Japan, India, Indonesia and Europe who came to buy silk, spices and porcelain. Some of these merchants settled in Hoi An and their influence can be seen in the architecture, particularly some of the original shops and the Japanese Covered Bridge. The immaculately preserved town centre is like a living museum, with historic houses, shops, craft shops and temples making up some of the 844 structures now protected by UNESCO. They continue to protect the charm & peace of the old town by having a ban on motorbikes between 07:30 - 11:30 and at night it is only lit up by traditional lanterns, no bright street lamps or halogen lights.
