If you ever happen to stop by in Da Nang, don't hesitate to visit the next best tourist spot in Hoi An. I drove in a motorcycle for about 1 hr to get there from Danang. It was all worth it.

To me, this place is one of the most beautiful in the whole region of Southeast Asia. Even more beautiful than Suzhou in China. I was really amazed by the old architecture and how preserved it is. The atmosphere with the river, floating boats, and lanterns that are everywhere is just simply amazing. Worthy of spending here even a few days instead just of a night. Thank you😍
