Day 1

Arrival in Hoi An

Hoi An is bursting with atmosphere. You’ll spend three nights in a stylish hotel close to the old town, complete with an inviting pool for a refreshing dip. After checking in, you can explore the tangle of tiny roads, made-to-measure tailors and tumble-down Chinese shopfronts.

Days 2-3

Bamboo Workshop

This morning you’ll be getting crafty making your own souvenirs from bamboo! You’ll be collected from your hotel in Hoi An and transferred the 20 minutes to the Bay Mau Coconut village where you’ll meet your teacher. This local family have been creating household items from bamboo for three generations and once they’ve shown you the ropes, it’s your turn to get creative. You’ll be guided along the way but what you create is up to you!

Optional day trip

The Golden Bridge

If you want to get out of the city and visit the impressive Golden Bridge during your time in Hoi An, we can organise a return transfer for you from Hoi An with a private driver. You’ll buy your ticket on arrival (not included) and the cable car will glide you to the top of Ba Na Hills for a stroll along the Cau Vang Golden Bridge. At over 1000 metres above sea level, the views are as spectacular as the architecture, with two giant stone hands “holding” the gold thread walkway high above the clifftops.

Departure from Hoi An

On the final day of your Hoi An trip, you’re free to do exactly as you please before your driver picks you up from your hotel and transfers you back to Danang to head to your next destination. Spend a few lazy hours on the wide sandy beach or get that final fitting for your new outfit. There’s certainly no shortage of possibilities in this wonderful little town.

“Vietnam is as chaotic as it is calming, which is precisely why I love it! I’ve been spoiled for choice with its incredible landscapes and phenomenal pho, and having lived there for a spell, I’ve got plenty of my own tips to share!”
