Embark on a private walking tour to the old port city of Hoi An, recognized since 1999 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for having successfully preserved years of influence from both local and foreign cultures. With convenient hotel pick ups within Da Nang City center, you won't have to worry about the hassle of commuting from one city to another. As soon as you arrive in Hoi An, you'll proceed on foot through streets cars and motorbikes have no access to. Your first stop in the tour is the Phuc Kien Assembly Hall, an ornate Chinese style temple that was first built as a traditional assembly area in which the ethnic Chinese Phuc Kien (Fujian) tribes could come together and socialize, before it was turned into a place of worship. Make your way to the Old House of Tan Ky, described as the perfect example of an 18th century merchant's house that has been well maintained by over 7 generations and counting. In the Old House, your guide will take you through the antique-filled rooms where you'll find relics of the prospering trade cultural exchanges between the Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese. As you continue the tour, you'll find another beautifully preserved 18th century piece - the Japanese Covered Bridge, the most famous bridge of its kind in Vietnam and probably the most visited tourist spot in the city, built by the Japanese community back in the day to reach the Chinese quarters. Your last stop in the tour is another historic house just a few steps away from the Japanese Covered Bridge. The Phung Hung House is a two storey building that features a fusion of Chinese and Japanese architectural design, plus handicrafts that showcase the culture and heritage of Vietnam. When your tour finally comes to an end here, you can choose to board the shuttle back to your hotel, or you can spend the rest of your day strolling around the streets until 9:00pm, the latest departure time back to Da Nang. A small tip - stay 'til after sunset and see the colorful lanterns illuminate the pebbled streets of the old city! It's a sight you wouldn't want to miss.
