A short drive from the central city of Danang, Hoi An has rightly earned a reputation as one of Vietnam's most picturesque towns. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Hoi An draws visitors to its lovingly preserved mix of Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and French architecture - evidence of the town's fascinating past as a major trading port. From the 17th to the 19th century, Phai Pho, which is Hoi An's old name as a riverside port, was frequented by traders from as far away as Holland, China, Japan and India, who came for Vietnam's silk, porcelain, pepper, cinnamon and medicinal plants.
