Hoi An, The Town

Even though the weather let us down, the food, historic sites and people did not let us down! We spent our second day in Hoi An exploring the Old Town Historic area. During the 16th through 19th century Hoi An was an important international seaports. Today Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and remained fairly unharmed from the Vietnam War.

We walked around the city and the river for the day and enjoyed the sites and shopping of this charming little town. Here are a few pictures of our walking tour.



We loved all the dogs in Vietnam, they were so stylish sporting their t-shirts!


Gemma is trying to grow her fringe out. I love her new look!

Hoi An was full of great restaurants, but we kept coming back to the Cargo Club. They had amazing desserts and they of course all had the great French flair to them! I think I had dessert at this place every day while we were in Hoi An.


This was the only semi-sunny day we had our entire trip! You can see us squinting for the camera!



We were in Hoi An during Tet Festival which is there lunar new year, the biggest holiday of the year for the Vietnamese. Here are some boys getting their dragon ready for a parade.
