PLACES TO SEE
Hoi An has many places for visitors to feast their eyes on during their stay in the city, some of which are amongst the best Vietnam’s tourist attractions.

- Linh Ung Buddhist Temple: The temple features a great view of the sea, the sky and a 67 meter tall statue of Quan the Am facing the Ocean. This is a great site to behold. One of the most memorable things to do in Hoi An.
- Ba Na Hill Station: It is located just 45 minutes’ drive from Da Nang. Ba Na is located 1,487 meters above sea level in the Truong Son mountain range. It was formerly a 1920s French resort and once boasted 200 villas, restaurants and clubs. This is a great sight.
- Marble Mountains: This is another sight, just 9km south of downtown and across the street from many larger beach side resorts. It includes Kim Son- Mountain of Metal, Moc Son-Mountain of Wood, Thuy Son- Mountain of Water, Hoa Son-Mountain of Fire and Tho Son-Mountain of Earth. Guides are available.
- Cham Museum: The museum was founded in 1915 and it houses a collection of stone sculptures from the Hindu practicing Cham civilization. The museum can be toured in about an hour. Some of the art works have weathered badly over the centuries but they can still be appreciated.
THINGS TO DO
- Clun Tourane: This is one of the most popular destinations for the youth, and it opens at 8p.m until late night. It is the first five star night club in the central Da Nang. A great way to taste the mostly non-existent yet quirky Hoi An nightlife.
- Old town: Hoi An Old town is a charming neighbourhood that has stood still through times and gleefully lives in its glorious past. The old houses of Old Town are worth a visit for their authentic Vietnamese architecture and decor and the Japanese Covered bridge is a thing of beauty. The nearby Cua Dai Beach is possibly the busiest and the best beach in Hoi An.
