HOI AN OLD TOWN

HOI AN OLD TOWN

Hoi An – The imprint of the flourishing port city

As the port of Cham people, in the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, with the presence of Chinese and Japanese merchants, Hoi An became the busiest port of Dai Viet, where the exchange had occurred. However, due to the change of Thu Bon river flow and the development of the Danang port, Hoi An gradually lost its position. The streets were bustling, the taciturn structures, ancient temples and pagodas were gradually forgotten and lost in the silence of time.

Over the years, the time covered with a layer of sedimentary dust on each street, each of the architectural works of Hoi An, gives the old town a unique style of quiet and gentle. The main feature that has attracted tourists to Hoi An, walking on the streets shimmering with lights, visiting ancient houses, solemn temples, visiting traditional villages. You will see yourself in the ancient time of the prosperous and busy trading port

Along Thu Bon River, you will touch to the ancient capital - the sacred land of the Champa kingdom & My Son Holy Land. My Son was continuously built by Cham people from the fourth to the fourteenth centuries, and some excavations show that the kings of the Champa kingdom were buried here. Currently in My Son, there are more than 70 relics dating from TK VII to XIV, many of which are heavily devastated by the war and time boom. My Son is like a bass note, a deep deposition of time that you will want to admire.
