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.
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.
Located on the east of Hoi An, Champo Island was once the site of the ancient Maritime Silk Road. The scenery here is very original, with blue sea water and beautiful corals and algae, which is very suitable for snorkeling. Champo Island established a nature reserve in 2003 and joined the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in May 2009.
