Hoi An is Vietnam’s most charming and atmospheric town, an old port city that has remained remarkably well preserved for hundreds of years. A stroll through the city’s lantern-lit old town, along winding lanes, temples and Chinese shophouses is a romantic journey to the past. Hoi An (then called Lam Ap Pho) was the main trading port of the Cham Empire from the 2nd to the 14th centuries. The city rose to prominence again in the 16th century under the Nguyen Lords and became a major economic center. Chinese, Japanese and traders from Europe all played a role in the city’s development, giving it a uniquely international flavor. Today, Hoi An’s historic charm coexists with abundant shopping and chic modern restaurants, making it a top tourist destination and a culinary haven.
Pagoda Bridge (Japanese Covered Bridge)
Hoi An’s signature site was built by Japanese merchants around the turn of the 16th century, and has been restored several times since. The covered bridge holds a small temple inside, said to protect the town from a monster with its head in India, its body in Vietnam and its tail in Japan. Statues of dogs on one side and monkeys on the other guard the bridge.
My Son Sanctuary
This UNESCO World Heritage site, located 40km from Hoi An, is a complex of tower temples constructed by the ancient Champa culture between the 4th and 13th centuries. This unique culture owes its spiritual origins to Indian Hinduism. Many of the over 70 temples are dedicated to Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction, while their architectural designs symbolize Mount Meru, the mythical sacred mountain home of Hindu gods at the center of the universe. The impressive ruins, some of Vietnam’s most important, are set amidst evocative tropical jungle surroundings.
The Marble Mountains are limestone formations protruding from the Non Nuoc beach just outside Danang. There are several paths which lead up to the top of the cliffs and provide breathtaking views of the East Sea and its surrounding beaches. Cham people originally housed the caves throughout the mountains, and today the surrounding area is home to local artisans who produce artwork and sculptures. Make sure to check out Huyen Khong cave, home to an enormous Cham Buddha illuminated by shafts of natural light.
Linh Ung Pagoda/Goddess of Mercy - BaNa Hills
Linh Ung Pagoda/Goddess of Mercy Located on the Son Tra Peninsula, Linh Ung pagoda (one of three in Danang), is nearly 200m above sea level and offers sweeping views of the sea and the surrounding areas. But the most striking feature of the pagoda is the enormous, all-white statue of Quan The Am (also known as Guanyin), the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. At 67m, it is the tallest statue in Vietnam and one of the tallest in all of Southeast Asia. The statue faces out towards the sea, and at night is illuminated, a beacon for fisherman. Ba Na Hills Boasting the longest and highest cable car in the world, Ba Na Hills offer a temperate mountain retreat with a cool climate year-round. The former French hill station is still being developed as an eco-tourism destination.
