This fishing-village-turned-tourist-attraction is situated on the coast of the South China Sea.
Hoi An has been an international port from the 16th century although the serious shipping business has long since moved to the city of Da Nang.
The heart of the city is still the Old Town, full of winding lanes and Chinese-styled shops. It is sometimes called the “Venice of Vietnam” because of the narrow canals that cut through part of the town.
Location: Quang Nam, Vietnam
