Hoi An

We arrived at Danang airport in autumn and took a mailinh taxi to Hoi An, which is about 30 minutes by car. Hoi An is a fantastic city that has maintained its original buildings and simply upgrades the inside of the buildings. So it is very much similar to visiting a heritage where everything seems untouched for hundreds of years.

Naturally this is a magnet for tourists and the environment is set up for tourists with many small cafes and good restaurants scattered all over town.

Ancient house

We bought a house ticket and visited many interesting but private houses where the owners explained about the history. We were very impressed to find out that it mostly was their ancestors’ house and that the houses have been in the family for hundreds of years. Many pictures explained the history and portrait paintings of ancestors where usually placed on the house alter.
