Day 1: Danang – Hoian – Ancient Town
Welcome at Danang airport, we pass the Tien Sa seaport, Son Tra Peninsula, Cham island and long sandy beaches. You can also stop to visit Mable Mountain before proceeding to Hoi An. Check in your hotel.
From the 16th to 18th centuries, Hoian was a thriving international commercial port for Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab traders. These people came primarily to trade in the high grade silk & ceramics which is still produced in the area.
Today, Hoian is a quaint riverside town, popular with tourists for its eclectic architecture, tailors shops, and numerous cafes. Some of the buildings in the narrow streets have remained unchanged for more than a century.
We enjoy a half-day walking tour through the narrow winding streets of the Ancient Quarter visiting Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Halls, the 200 - year old Tam Ky ancestral house, and the Japanese Bridge.

Come to the Hai Scout Café to meet the Chef. Then go buy the ingredients to be used in the cooking lesson later. After the market visit, you board a Red Bridge boat for a leisurely cruise (25 minutes) along the Thu Bon River to the Red Bridge Cooking School.
On arrival, explore the school’s herb and vegetable garden, before learning about some of Hoian’s and Vietnam’s well-known dishes, which are a mix of Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. The cooking lesson lasts about 2 hours – each dish is first demonstrated by the Red Bridge chefs, before you prepare the same dish by yourself. The class also contains a brief introduction to Vietnamese food carving (plate decoration). After the lesson, we sit down and eat what we have cooked. Then the boat will take you back to Hoian Town. The trip finishes at your hotel at 3:00pm.

A highlight of any trip to Vietnam, Hoian is a town oozing charm and history, having largely escaped the destruction of successive wars. Once a sleepy riverside village, it’s now quite definitely a tourist town – with hotels, restaurants, bars, tailors and souvenir shops dominating the old center. Despite this air of reality, Hoi An’s charisma pervades.
