Hoi An in central Vietnam has become a popular stop off point for tourists who are travelling the length of the country, but this pretty seaside town is worthy of a visit, somewhere where you wander along the cobbled streets of the old town, get a suit or dress made in under 24 hours and try your hand at rolling nems at a Vietnamese cookery class.

The Ancient Town is the main sightseeing stop in the city, so leave plenty of time to explore it. Landmarks in this part of town include the Japanese Covered Bridge, Quan Cong Temple, Cantonese Assembly Hall and Phung Hung House. For more insight into the town and its culture check out one of the four quirky museums, including the Museum of Folk Culture and Hoi An Museum of History. Daily tours from the city include a day snorkelling at Cham Island, Craft lessons where you can fashion your own lantern and a bike tour of Cam Tim.
