Cyclo & Boat cruise tour in Hoi An
Tour description: Hoi An, once known as Faifo, was a major international port in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the foreign influences are discernible to this day. While the serious shipping business has long since moved to Danang, the heart of the city is still the Old Town, full of winding lanes and Chinese-styled shophouses, which is particularly atmospheric in the evening as the sun goes down. While almost all shops now cater to the tourist trade, the area has been largely preserved as is, which is unusual in Vietnam, and renovation has proceeded slowly and carefully - it's mercifully absent of towering concrete blocks and karaoke parlors. The main thoroughfare in the Old Town is Tran Phu. Just south of the Old Town, across the Thu Bon River, are the islands of An Hoi to the west, reachable via Hai Ba Trung, and Cam Nam to the east, reachable via Hoang Dieu. Most visitors to Hoi An spend a lot of time walking through the ancient streets, buying clothes, shoes and paintings in the town’s famous shops. But how many visitors get to discover the simple life of the villagers, watch the children at play and experience the warmth of their welcome while enjoying the beautiful scenery, such as bamboo, churches and thatched cottages. We will take you on a “Xich Lo” tour with an experienced local guide who will show you the more interesting hidden parts of this beautiful town. Everything is guaranteed to give you a sense of serenity.
