Unique Things to do in Hoi An Ancient Town

Hoi An, a UNESCO ancient town with more than 2,000 years of history, was once the main port of the Cham Kingdom. You can see from Hoi An's ancient town that its architecture its mash of cultures over the years, with the most dominating and recognizable being the chinese influenced shophouses. Today, while Hoi An ancient town is located far away from the economic and political centres of Vietnam, relegating it to a tourist town and most of Hoi An's attractions, activities and things to do revolve around it. That said, things to do in Hoi An Ancient Town is no less appealing than other parts of Vietnam. The little Backstreets of Hoi An are the most appealing and we at Backstreet Academy are decidedly the experts at finding the best of Hoi An's off-beat attractions & activities with the most friendly local hosts to create a unique experience you'll never find anywhere else. 

Whether you are looking to spend half a day learning how to make the characteristic paper lanterns that line Hoi An's charming old town, try out a hands-on workshop with one of Hoi An's old carving masters or go on a food tour led by local students, they're all available on Backstreet Academy.
