Hội An, also Faifoo, is a city of Central Vietnam. It is recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its Ancient Town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port.
The name Hội An literally translates to a “peaceful meeting place”. At sunset most of the people head to Bach Dang dock to take a peaceful and scenic cruise in one of the local boats along the Thu Bon river.
