Things To Do
When it comes to the best things to do, we are absolutely spoilt for choice in Hoi An and An Bang – art, history, shopping, beach time, temples, golf and touring or just wandering the Old Town marveling at the ancient architecture. That’s even before we mention the food.
Foodies have traditionally flocked to Hoi An for their fill, though, An Bang is quickly starting to rival Hoi An in the culinary stakes. It’s not all about food, though it’s pretty tasty!
Before we give you some ideas about what to see and do in An Bang and Hoi An we strongly recommend you find Coast Vietnam on Facebook and “like” them. They are the experts on all things happening in our area and provide real time updates on everything Hoi An and An Bang: where the best cocktail hours are happening, the local festivals and events you don’t want to miss. They print a detailed map each month with everything you need to know.
Even if you are only thinking about coming to Vietnam, jump on board and get a taste. There is some seriously interesting stuff on their page. We are not affiliated with Coast Vietnam in any way, though they take what they do very seriously and the information is extremely interesting and useful and of great benefit to holiday makers.
An Bang: things to do
An Bang is a small village with one village road running parallel to the beach. Off that road you’ll find a myriad of laneways and bucket loads of local experiences. Our villas are located on the beach end in laneways off the main village road.

Things to do in Hoi An
Hoi An offers something for everyone: incredible art, architecture, temples, historic houses, more shops than you can possibly hope to visit and more food than you could ever hope to eat. It’s easily covered on foot, or if you like you can find a cyclo driver who will take you on tour of the Old Town for around 200,000 – 250,000 VND per hour. Photographers flock to Hoi An in droves. Come on over and click away.
The shopping ranges from chintzy souvenirs to higher end local fashion design and jewelers. The food: well in all honesty, there’s too much. One year wouldn’t cover off all the options available. Like most places we think the best parts of Hoi An are found in the tiny laneways off the beaten track. Take a detour down a laneway and you don’t know what you might find – probably some amazing street food, or little treasure shop filled with bargains or that picture perfect photo opportunity.
