Hoi An is a small city in Central Vietnam which is famous for its wooden houses, family chapels, Assembly Halls and for its silk shops. It is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century for Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab merchants who traded mainly in high-quality silks. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site. If you are interested in historic places or World Heritage Sites you can spend one day to explore Myson Holy-land to learn more about Cham’s Cultures.
