Hoi an is pretty as a picture with ancient and quiet colors of Asia and that is the most beautiful place for visiting. The thick layer of moss on the roof as the cherished memories of time and the warm atmostphere of old house beside the narrow streets make the Hoian’s distinctions. Moreover, when the dark is coming, Hoi An appears in the flickering light of the lanterns. That’s really interesting when looking all the people walk around the street, buy and sell on the street market. They make noisier and they make Hoi an’s charmer. Enjoy Hoi an, I think life rhythm more slowed, the beat  as breathing of the time. However, you will ride bike around Hoi An old quarter and learn how to make lantern. Moreover, join in cooking class and enjoy a delicious lunch is really great.

If you have ever come to Hoi an ancient, I sure that you knew about the long history of this land, that is the beginning  of the Cham culture and nowadays there are have many statues, the temples with Cham culture. Coming Hoi An ancient, you will see all the small narrow streets, all the ancient houses are covered by the time.

The tourist trade is now Hoi An\'s bread and butter, and justabout every business in town is geared to it. Restaurants offer menus oflocal specialties and American breakfasts, tailors offer suits made inless than 24 hours. It can easily feel like one giant showcase withlittle in the way of an independent life of its own. Yes, it\'s a big tourist trap, but even so -- it\'s an excellent tourist trap that shouldn\'t be missed. Most people who visit are charmed, and even cynics will likely seek an excuse to justify liking it.

Historians believe that Hoi An was founded more than 2,000 years ago as a primitive portfor the Sa Huynh people, thanks to evidence from archaeologicalexcavations which have also pointed towards early trade with the Handynasty in China. Through to the 15th century, the port was absorbedinto the Kingdom of Champa and was known first as Lam Ap and later asFaifo. During this period, it developed into a prosperous trading portvisited by trading fleets from as far afield as the Arabian peninsula.As a hub of regional trade, Hoi An brought considerable affluence to theChampa Kingdom, evidence of which can be seen at nearby My Son.

The number of traders visiting Hoi An escalated as the centuries marchedon, with the Portuguese, Dutch, British and French all making anappearance, along with the ever-present Chinese, Japanese and Indians.The majority of Hoi An\'s most beautiful buildings were constructed from the 15th to 19th centuries.

Hoi An\'s star began to fade as trade slowly moved north to the larger and more industrial port of Da Nang.Today, little trade occurs aside from tourist boats, and onlysmall-scale fishing boats use the port commercially. The foreignvisitors are no longer traders, but tourists. Many visitors pass throughquickly, catching a glimpse of the colourful atmosphere, and perhapshaving a rush order put through on a suit or a dress. However, thosewilling to stick around a little longer will be rewarded. The townconceals a dozen or so engaging historical attractions, and the areaoffers beaches and ruins worth some daytrips. And most importantly,those who linger in town will get to see the real life lurking behindHoi An\'s faded facade.
