There aren’t many places in the world where mass tourism and beauty blend, in the way they do in Hoi An. This UNESCO World Heritage Site in Vietnam is incredibly popular with visitors, who are attracted to its old world charm with a distinct Chinese vibe.
Most travelers enter Vietnam either via Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Getting a Vietnam visa is necessary for most nationalities, yet it can be done online in a few days. Once you have entered the country, getting around tends to be easy. To reach Hoi An, you’d need to either get a domestic flight or train from the north (Hanoi) or the south of the country (Ho Chi Minh City). Either way, you will always end up in the nearby city of Da Nang, where both the closest airport and train stations are located.
