This city is located in the center of the country. Its historic district is a mixture of Chinese, Japanese, and French influences and has been declared a World Heritage Site.
One of the most interesting places to see is the 17th-century Japanese Bridge, an icon of Hội An (it's actually depicted on Dong bills). It's a reddish wood and stone covered bridge that's also home to a Vietnamese temple. It was built to link the traditional Japanese and Chinese districts of the city.
The banks of the Thu Bồn River are always bustling and full of shops and restaurants.
