Ancient Settlement
Hoi An Old Town is about 30 kilometers from the city of Da Nang. This is an ancient city filled with ethnic Chinese architecture and people. Dotted with Chinese and Japanese-style buildings, there are a number of mutually beneficial societies including the Fujian Society, the Guangzhou-Zhaoqing Society, the Huizhou Society, the Hainan Society and the Chinese Society. During daylight hours, Hoi An Old Town is bustling. Consider strolling along the streets poking your head into the small shops or stopping for a cup of coffee in a café. Once night falls, Hoi An Old Town is very charming. It transforms into a world of lanterns lit in a variety of colors. Wherever you look, lanterns of all shapes and sizes are hung high illuminating the street below.

Champo Island established a nature reserve in 2003 and joined the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in May 2009.
Japanese Covered Bridge
4.2/5
300 Reviews
Historical Site
The Japanese Pontoon Bridge was built in 1593 and was built by the Japanese. It was confirmed by the Chinese during the Ming Dynasty in China. It is similar to many ancient Chinese bridges. Interestingly, the bridge is guarded by a monkey at one end and guarded by a dog at one end. There are also 12 zodiac signs in Vietnam, but it is slightly different from China. There is an exhibition room in the middle section of the bridge. The bright yellow French architecture and the tall coconut trees are reflected on the river. Together with the afterglow of the setting sun, it is quiet and harmonious.

Trip Moments

wuqiuhuang   
Sitting on the Star Cruises to Vietnam, staying in two ports, one of which is the second largest port city in Vietnam, Da Nang. When I set off, I sent myself to Vietnam in the circle of friends. Several friends recommended to go to the ancient city of Hoi An. It is worth visiting. Its here, walking, and here, the ancient city of Hoi An. When I came here, the weather was not very good. Just after the downstream round, there was a light rain, and it never stopped. The long-distance cruise ship from China took two days to come here. In such a weather, it is inevitable There will be some loss. But for a photographer, no weather can stop my heart of photography. I bought a hat in a small shop. The boss has already seen that I am a tourist. I use the calculator in my hand to press 30. I understand it, 30 RMB. I use the fluent Chinese to pay 20 yuan. The boss actually I understand, ok, I am serving you. Wearing national costumes and wandering the streets of Hoi An ancient city, from time to time, tourists pick up the camera in their hands and pretend that I am also a local, haha. The main means of transportation in Hoi An Ancient City is that "you die first tricycle" tourists sit in front, the driver is behind, in case of any major events, you know, such a design car may only be seen in foreign countries. The ancient city of Hoi An, a place worth staying for a few days, used to be a port called "the mouth of the sea." Because of the dispute over the rights of the king of Vietnam, I almost abandoned it here. After the United Nations large-scale renovation of Angang, the brilliance of todays day was dazzled.
