The pretty ancient town is a great place for the kids to explore and it makes a scenic backdrop for a family photo! I love wandering around the town, admiring the beauty of the Vietnamese-French architecture, enjoying the bustle of the tourists, or spending a peaceful evening by the river.
You can't miss this lovely bridge as it's in the most popular part of the ancient town. There's no need to spend too long here but it's definitely worth a walk through as it's very pretty — particularly in the evenings when it's lit up with lanterns.
This little shop could provide a treat for the whole family. Head here to get all your family members beautiful new clothes in just 24 hours! (I could not be happier than when I visit here, as I can choose the best material for a new dress, and have it tailor-made and ready the next day.)
This is a great place to shop for souvenirs. Children will love looking at all the colorful silk lanterns and will be fascinated by the real silk worm production display. The whole family can learn how the lanterns are made, and even have a go at making one themselves to take home.
This small stall sells the best 'banh mi' (Vietnamese baguette) in Hoi An. You can have banh mi any time of the day here — it's a great-value snack if you've got lots of little mouths to feed!
This is a cozy little restaurant, with friendly, helpful staff, and serves the best food! The restaurant offers training to street children so when you eat there you not only get the chance to taste the most delicious food around, but you're also supporting a great cause too.
It is worth a quick visit to the oldest house in Hoi An, where six generations of the same family used to live. The house is well kept with beautiful ancient furniture, and it is interesting to learn about the merchant culture history of the area.
Take a tour of this interesting historical family house, guided by a family member. The architecture of the 300 year-old house is unique with a beautiful little indoor courtyard, and dark wooden interior with intricate carvings — a great place for the kids to explore.
Tra Que Vegetable Village is a great place for a family day out. There are activities to keep everyone entertained, from learning how to grow vegetables as a farmer to learning how to cook Vietnamese food. The village also offers picturesque scenery with rice fields, a river, and herb garden.
Discover a real foodie paradise at Central Market, offering up the best in fresh, cheap food. You can also buy souvenirs here, made and sold by local people, which makes them very special.
Sea, sun, sandy beach, beautiful coral... Cham island has it all! Moreover it is not crowded with tourists so your family can relax and have some real quality time together.
My favorite thing to do at Cua Dai Beach is to just sit on a deck chair; people-watching, drinking, and eating delicious food in the afternoon sun. Children can play happily on the sandy beach — it's a great place for everyone to chill out and relax.
This is a great restaurant offering incredible seafood along with an incredible beach view! The location is great — under a line of beautiful palm trees — and the staff offer a friendly, helpful service.
