Hoi An City Tour


This old town is best explored on foot or by cyclo. The walking tour of Hoi An will visit Quan Cong Temple; a Chinese temple dedicated to Quan Cong, whose partially gilt statue is in the central altar at the back of the sanctuary. See Phuoc Kien Pagoda; a Chinese pagoda built around 1690 and then restored and enlarged in 1900. It is typical of the Chinese 'clans' that were established in the Hoi An area. Visit the Japanese Covered Bridge; built by the Japanese community of Hoi An, it linked them with the Chinese quarters across the stream. Continue to the Tran Family Chapel; a house for worshipping ancestors that was built about 200 years ago with donations from the family members. Next, explore Sa Huynh Museum which contains exhibitions from the earliest period of Hoi An's history. See Phung Hung House; a combination of Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese style and finally visit Quang Dong Pagoda; a small Chinese style temple dedicated to Thien Hau with a lintel gate, a rockery courtyard and lucky animals depicted in statuary.
