Hoi An old town

 

Hoi An is also known as Faifo in english and European languages.

Hoi An old town probably is the prettiest town in Vietnam, and it is also listed in UNESCO.

It is a well-preserved trading port from 15th to 19th century.

The architecture of Hoi An, which is almost entirely of wood, is of considerable interest. It combines traditional Vietnamese designs and techniques with those from other countries, above all China and Japan, whose citizens settled there to trade and built houses and community centres to their own designs.
