“Being ancient, peaceful and stunning, Hoi An is the ideal destination of newlyweds from all around the world”, said Ms. Salome Villaflor, General Manager of Essence Hoi An Hotel & Spa.
Getting lost in Hoi An Ancient Town
There’s nowhere else you want to get lost in more than Hoi An Ancient Town. As an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port, Hoi An with its buildings and street plan reflect the influences that have combined to produce this unique heritage site.
The ancient and picturesque scenery of Hoi An is even more stunning at night when vibrant nightlife can set a perfect mood for all newlyweds. When the sun sets, Hoi An Ancient Town glows with thousands of lanterns hung in every corner of the place. The nightlife scene comprises trendy bistros, cafés, bars, artistic lounges, and live music venues set within the bustling Ancient Town and Riverside.
Especially, on the lunar 14th every month, all electric lights are turned off around 19:00-21:00 so that the people can drop twinkling flower lanterns on Thu Bon river to wish for luck and peaceful life. The beautiful sight of hundreds of sparkling lights from small lanterns on the water can overwhelm even the most fastidious visitors to this Ancient Town.
Although it is a small town, Hoi An has a very diverse food culture. There are so many different specialty dishes to try. Among the most famous dishes of Hoi An are Chicken Rice (Com Ga), white rose dumplings (Banh Vac), Mi Quang which can be bought from stalls or restaurants around Hoi An.
Newlyweds should never forget to taste Banh Mi, the famous Vietnamese baguette sandwich that fuses French (bread, mayonnaise, pate, cold cuts) with Vietnamese (barbecue pork, cilantro, herbs, pickled veg, chilli sauce). Madame Khanh or Banh Mi Phuong are two most famous Banh Mi shops in Hoi An. There are a few more variations of fillings available but the standard is still a very affordable 20,000 dong.
Visiting attractive coffee shops
Hoi An is full of attractive coffee shops where couples can drop by for drinks. While Reaching Out impresses customers with its ancient architecture and peaceful atmosphere, Mango Room amazes visitors by vivid colors of its furniture items from walls, ceiling fan, to pillows and plates.
