Long Description:
Roaming around the narrow streets of this 15th century town is like stepping through a magic door. All the ancient bright colors and Japanese and Chinese influences make it so colorful. It's hard to believe that a few hundred yards down the street and around the corner is the present day Hoi An. Or you can cross the bridge to a newer section. Don't miss the chance to have clothes and shoes made to fit. Hoi An tailors are famous for their work. And the silk for sale in all the shops is hard to resist.
