Vietnam's central coast is a rich tapestry of history and culture, lush interiors and golden shores. Get out and explore, or unwind with riverfront tranquillity.
Grab a map and set off for a leisurely tour around the streets of Hoi An. Cycle past lush paddies to reach the golden shores of An Bang Beach. Bicycles are provided with our compliments.
Hoi An Ancient Town
Hoi An's historic quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where traditional shophouses with original architecture line neatly laid-out alleys. Explore small shrines, art galleries and cafes. Visit the iconic Japanese Bridge, built in the late 16th century to connect the town's Japanese residents with the Chinese quarter.
Full Moon Lantern Festival
The Full Moon Lantern Festival takes place on the 1st and 14th night of every lunar month. During this time, roads in the historic quarter are closed and thousands of coloured lanterns light the way. Locals honour their ancestors with altars set up outside homes laden with fruit, flowers, candles and incense. See living history in action and join in festive rituals.
Hue Imperial City
The citadel of Hue, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a regal history. Magnificent architecture, the tombs of Nguyen emperors, and ornate temples showcase the history of the former capital.
