After a wonderful morning market walk followed by a splendid lunch, we purchased the town’s entrance tickets which entitled us to access 5 most famous sights out of a total of 20 plus attractions.

I liked this temple best but like every monument in Hoi An you can pass by in 5 minutes and everything is filled with tourists, plastic and cheap souvenirs. Still I did found it amusing.

We had a very good guide (thanks to Key from Hoi An Express Travel) which is a must to have the significant issues and customs of this ancient Chinese Temple explained in full. Note the Twelve Midwives who protect all Under-5's in Vietnam from danger (hence little children do not wear helmets when riding on motorbikes in Vietnam as they... More

We went to visit this assembly hall with a guide. It is interesting to understand the history. However the place is nothing yo wow about. We did not spend too much of a time in this place. I think if you run out of time, I will give this a miss.
