In the morning, your professional guide will pick you up by cyclo at your hotel and transport you over the tile-roofed Japanese Bridge – one of Hoi An's most iconic attractions. Learn about this classic example of Japanese architecture, built by Japanese residents in the 18th century as a means of reaching the Chinese quarter across the water.
Continue to Hoi An’s Chinese Assembly Halls, which were built as community centers by Chinese immigrants who gathered together and worshipped their ancestors in the pagodas. Admire the grand gate and garden of ornamental plants as well as the main hall and altar room, which still draws local residents.
If you’d like, your guide will stop at religious shrines or accompany you for a stroll into Hoi An Market to take in the colorful sights, sounds and aromas as you interact with the vendors. Located by the Thu Bon River, this local market features artists who use the rooftops of Hoi An as a source of inspiration for their work. If you’d prefer, your guide will take you shopping for lanterns and silk, or even to get your clothes tailored!
After lunch at a local restaurant, hop on a bicycle for a scenic 2-mile (4-km) ride from the center of town to Cua Dai Beach, considered one of the nicest beaches in Central Vietnam. Spend some leisure time at this tranquil beach, enjoying the sunset from the fine white sand or swimming in the clear blue water, where moderate slopes and small waves make it an ideal place to complete your full-day tour.
In the early evening, your guide will deliver you back to your hotel in Hoi An.
