THE BEAUTY OF HOI AN
The old Hoi An is a real jewel enclosed within the ancient walls, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.
The old town is really characteristic and wandering around and getting lost in its colourful alleys to explore the most remote corners is definitely an experience you will not forget.
To visit it you need to buy a multiple entrance ticket that allows you to visit four monuments of your choice. Moreover, the old town is closed to traffic.
