Danang Arrival - A Journey into Tranquility

Welcome to Danang, the starting point of your adventure! Upon your arrival at Danang International Airport, a friendly guide will be waiting for you at the baggage claim area. You can easily spot them as they will be holding a sign adorned with the distinctive "Asia Tour Advisor" logo and your name. From here, you will embark on a short but pleasant journey to Hoi An, all the while receiving a brief introduction to the enchanting surroundings from your guide.

Once you arrive in Hoi An, the day is yours to unwind, relax, and settle into the serene atmosphere of this historic town.

Hoi An - Where History Meets Beauty

Hoi An is a place where history, culture, and beauty intersect harmoniously. From the 16th to the 19th centuries, it thrived as a bustling port city, attracting traders from China, Japan, India, Indonesia, and Europe, all seeking to procure silk, spices, and porcelain. Today, Hoi An's UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Quarter stands as a beautifully preserved testament to this rich history. Its streets are lined with ornate pagodas, antique trading houses, and old tile-roofed shops.

This ancient town's architecture is a captivating fusion of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and European styles. Many of the historic buildings, which are situated along picturesque canals and pedestrian streets, have been lovingly transformed into art galleries, charming boutique restaurants, bars, and cafes. While Hoi An offers a chance to explore its illustrious past, it is also surrounded by lush countryside featuring traditional farming and fishing methods, as well as stunning sandy beaches adorned with modern seaside resorts.

Choosing Your Stay in Hoi An

For your visit to Hoi An, you have two main options:

  • Hoi An Downtown: This area places you within walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants, tourist attractions, and vibrant nightlife.

  • Hoi An Beach: Located approximately 15 to 20 minutes away by car, it's the ideal choice for beach lovers looking to soak up the sun and enjoy the coastal charms.

Culinary Adventure & Heritage Discovery

Today, embark on a culinary journey, immersing yourself in the vibrant flavors of Vietnam. The adventure begins with a visit to a colorful local market, where you'll source all the essential ingredients for your cooking class. Return to the kitchen to prepare and cook a selection of typical Vietnamese dishes under the guidance of a skilled chef. Once you've mastered the art of Vietnamese cuisine, indulge in the delightful fruits of your labor.

In the afternoon, stroll through the enchanting, time-capsule town of Old Hoi An during a guided walking tour. Hoi An's illustrious history as a major Asian seaport has resulted in a charming blend of styles and cultures, all perfectly preserved. Wander through traditional Chinese shops, elegant French residences, and across an ancient Japanese bridge. The town is adorned with vibrant silk markets, Vietnamese street food stalls, and captivating street performances that will undoubtedly captivate your heart.

From My Son Sanctuary to Hue's Royal Tombs

Today, you'll bid farewell to Hoi An and embark on a journey to visit the ancient Champa Kingdom, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back to the 3rd century. Nestled in a picturesque valley surrounded by towering mountain peaks, these temples, rebuilt in the 7th century, have become a sanctuary of Hinduism.

After your exploration, return to the city for lunch and then head to Hue, making a stop at Khai Dinh's Tomb. This unique tomb boasts a traditional Vietnamese design with a European touch, setting it apart from other royal tombs in Hue. Once you arrive in Hue, check in at your hotel and enjoy the remainder of the day at your leisure.

Hue Imperial City & Tranquil Chuon Lagoon

Today, your journey will lead you through the former Royal Capital of Hue and into the picturesque countryside. You'll pass small villages, lush rice fields, and quaint hamlets. Your leisurely bike ride begins with a visit to Thanh Toan, a quintessential Vietnamese village that features a picturesque covered Japanese-style bridge, a gem built during the reign of Emperor Le Hien Tong in the mid-18th century. Your guide will share the historical significance of this bridge, and you'll have the opportunity to visit the village's small museum and interact with local residents.

Continuing along the riverbank and passing through small farms and settlements, you'll reach Chuon, an ancient village with more than 600 years of history. The village's temple is a recognized national relic, showcasing architectural styles of the Nguyen Dynasty. The nearby local market is also worth a visit. However, the highlight for many is the serene Chuon Lagoon, part of the stunning Tam Giang Lagoon system. Chuon Lagoon plays a vital role in local fishing and livelihoods.

Embark on a small motorized sampan to cruise around this peaceful body of water, making stops at stilt houses to meet local families and learn about their daily lives. After your exploration, a simple yet delicious brunch featuring Khoai Cake, a Hue-style Vietnamese pancake, will be served. You'll return to the shore and ride back to Hue, appreciating the beauty of the countryside and the serenity of the lagoon.
