FAQ – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOI AN
What Is The Best Time To Go To Hoi An?
The best months to visit Hoi An are February to May when the temperatures are warm but not too hot and humid. Keep in mind that it can get VERY hot and humid between June and August.
On the other hand, the rainy season lasts from September to January. It can be annoying, the temperatures are at their lowest, but prices are definitely lower and there are fewer tourists around.
Is Hoi An Worth Visiting?
A big fat YES! I wasn’t a big fan of other parts of Vietnam, to be honest, but Hoi An really conquered me. Its charming old town all lightened up at night, the boutique shops, the cobbled streets were some of my favorite Hoi An highlights. Hoi An NEEDS to be in your itinerary.
How Many Days in Hoi An?
When people ask me how long to stay in Hoi An, I always reply as long as you can. Can you tell I feel in love with this town? No, but seriously, I recommend staying for at least 3 nights.
But what to do in Hoi An for 3 days, you ask? Plenty! Go explore the city, go on some Hoi An day trips, try a cooking class, cycle by the paddy fields and relax at the beach. You can even do a homestay in Hoi An if that’s your thing. If you have time, stay even longer, you won’t regret it.
What To Buy in Hoi An?
In my opinion, after a month trip in Vietnam, Hoi An is the best place in Vietnam to shop for souvenirs. From custom made suits to lanterns for friends and family to artisanal souvenirs, make sure you leave some space in your luggage.
How To Get To Hoi An
Easy! Hoi An is very well linked. No matter where you are coming from, you can choose between bus, train (even sleeper train) or plane.
It’s worth checking out Vietnam Airlines site for plane tickets: even just a couple of days before, you can easily find tickets for $30-40 from Ho Chi Minh. From Da Nang Airport to Hoi An, it’s only a 45-minutes to 1-hour drive: pre-book here a private transfer to your hotel.
Hopefully, the above information will help you better understand Hoi An and have an interesting trip. However, you must fully prepare the necessary things for the trip, especially the Vietnam visa.
