The best place lớn stay will be different depending on what you are looking for. Fortunately, Hoi An offers it all, a busy tourist centre, beachfront serenity, và rustic rural settings. For instance, there’s a range of accommodation options in each area that will suit all budgets: family, honeymooner, backpacker, luxury, and budget.

Therefore we think the easiest way to decide where to stay is to first break down Hoi An into three key areas: Hoi An’s Old Town, the nearby beaches, and the surrounding countryside. When choosing an area to lớn stay in Hoi An, it’s important lớn remember that this is quite a small tourist town & very well set up for tourists. So whatever location you choose, nothing here is too isolated. A 10-minute taxi ride will take you from the Old Town lớn the beach with the countryside lying halfway between the two. So don’t be afraid to lớn venture a little further afield as there are some real gems to be found.

The rural settings allow the real feel of Vietnam, and are within easy reach of other activities. For something different, providing self contained, luxury accommodation, a modern kitchen with ingredients in your own vegetable garden, a pool, and the tranquility lớn plan your holiday on your own at your own pace, see Oryza – Rural Hoi An.

Accommodation options surround Hoi An’s Old Town. The bulk of it is understandably not within the ancient town itself but on the edges, still an easy walking distance lớn the Old Town itself. So you won’t need taxis when you’re based here! You can take your pushbike anywhere or just put one foot in front of the other along the pedestrian-friendly streets.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with places to shop, explore, eat & be pampered while based in the heart of this UNESCO World Heritage Site—the reason why most tourists visit Hoi An. Food choices are endless, you can experience a different cuisine every day, multiple times a day, right at your fingertips.

What Can You vày in the Old Town?

You can cửa hàng for art & garments in converted old merchant houses, then take your shopping back lớn your accommodation to không tính tiền up your arms for more. Stroll the ancient town at your own pace, visiting the museums và old Chinese assembly halls conveniently every day. Get some clothes tailored, then take a nap, have a massage or take a dip in your khách sạn pool, & once you’re refreshed, you can start all over again.

Hidden Hint: Choose one of the many riverfront hotels for the best views of the Old Town, but be cautious of your proximity to the river during the rainy season (Oct to lớn Dec) as large areas of the Old Town are at risk of flooding. Kiểm tra out our weather article for the best times to lớn visit.

Staying in the Old Town means you can experience life here at all times of the day. So you can visit the Central Market first thing in the morning và watch the city come lớn life. After that, you can kết thúc your day watching the city và its lanterns at night, drinking a locally crafted beer, overlooking the river. Then just wander back lớn your khách sạn when you’ve had your fill. Because this location indeed allows you to maximise your holiday time.

But in high season, the number of tourists can get overwhelming in the Old Town. So if you’re looking for a more relaxed vibe, this area may not be for you. As soon as you come out of your hotel, you will be back in the thick of it all.

Why Stay at the Beach?

The majority of the large luxury resorts are here at the beach, & there are some fantastic outdoor beachside venues with stunning sea views. Local seafood restaurants dot the coastline where you can eat fresh seafood caught right from the nearby ocean. The larger resorts have miễn phí regular shuttles into the Old Town, or you can hire bikes to lớn get there cycling for approximately five kilometres. But kiểm tra the weather forecast before you head out.

All the key ingredients for ultimate relaxation are here at the beach. Drinking tropical fruit smoothies, reading a book in a sun lounger, having a mát xa in your hotel spa & then nhảy barefoot in the sand lớn live music from the many outdoor bars và restaurants.

Hidden Hint: You’ll likely have a better experience in the morning when the waters are clearer and the sands are less crowded.

If you are the kind of traveller who is looking for a more authentic vibe we would not suggest staying at the beach, it has all the westerner’s amenities, but a lack of Vietnamese flair và culture.

Heading to the Old Town from the Beach

If you want lớn head into the Old Town, you’ll need lớn plan your day well. Sights such as the historic houses và museums are at least five kilometres away, so if you forget something or need lớn go back lớn your hotel to rest, it can be a bit tiresome.

To get into the Old Town, you can get a xe taxi (Grab works in Hoi An) lớn get back khổng lồ your accommodation or rent a vehicle: motorbikes cost around 80,000 khổng lồ 100,000 VND (3.5 khổng lồ 4.5 USD), while bicycles cost about 50,000 VND (2 USD). Many of the resorts will lend you bicycles, but if you visit Hoi An in the rainy season (October khổng lồ December) prepare your raincoat & a bath for when you get back to lớn your room. Equally, avoid riding during the hottest hours of the day as the heat can be intense.

Immerse yourself, breathe in the fresh air, and relax in the calm atmosphere of where Hoi An’s produce is grown. It is an accommodation away from the bulk of the tourists.

The range of accommodation here skews towards the mid-range lớn budget end. If you want high-end resort luxury, this may not be the area for you. Together with this, there are fewer bars và restaurants here. So you might need your transport or hire a taxi to lớn get your choice of food & drink. Luckily, many of the homestays will provide bicycles for their guests. It’s under a 15-minute xe đạp ride into the Old Town from most areas.

Cam Thanh

A district in itself, Cam Thanh offers a phối of rural lifestyle và traditional Vietnamese houses. All in a slightly more developed area than other parts of rural Hoi An. There are many expat families who have relocated here. Wandering its streets you can find local eateries, temples, coffee shops, and of course, expansive rice fields.

An My

Rice fields that seem to go on till the horizon & friendly villagers are the icons of this area. You’ll easily find a peaceful getaway here in An My & a room with green scenery out your window.

Cam Kim Island

Until recently, the only way of getting to Cam Kim was by ferry. But a newly constructed bridge has made it more reachable, and it is now really close lớn the city—a comfortable bike ride away. Because of the previous lack of access, the area’s development has remained much less than in the Old Town proximities.

If you are the adventurous type of traveller & the term “off the beaten path” is the mantra you live by, then Cam Kim island is the place for you. With only one homestay listed on booking.com, this area might look as if it has nothing to lớn offer. But it’s the essence of Vietnam that lies here. So you might need to use the old-fashioned way of physically going khổng lồ Cam Kim, to lớn find alternatives of where to stay by roaming around. But we can assure you that in Hoi An, this is as local as it gets. For instance, eat local food at local prices from a hammock overlooking the river. After that you can observe the wood carving workshops Cam Kim is most famous for, & discover little temples between farm sites.
