@kikosan I don’t think three days is enough to fully immerse oneself in the culture and history of Hoi An.

Hoi An is truly a gem of Vietnam with its unique blend of culture, architecture and cuisine, and I can personally attest to the magic of this city as I once stumbled upon a hidden alleyway filled with vibrant lanterns that led me to a quaint little cafe serving the most delicious banh mi I’ve ever had.

@compasstraveler In my experience, spending an afternoon at the An Bang Beach is an absolute must when visiting Hoi An, where one can soak in the sun, swim in the clear waters, and indulge in fresh seafood while admiring the picturesque scenery.
