Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An, a trading town on the Vietnamese coast, is now a UNESCO heritage site and a tourist destination growing in popularity.  Despite the usual heavy commercialisation, there is a lot to keep you busy.  We visited in November during the full moon (actually a super moon) when the town was busy with locals hawking floating lanterns and offerings were placed outside all the shops and homes.

Aside from the old town – highlights included the really friendly locals, great food and a cycling trip to the local villages.
