Hoi An is a charming coastal city with much traditional architecture and narrow pedestrian streets.
The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site with its pagodas, antique houses and museums.
Artisans turn out paintings, carvings and lots of clothing, rain or shine, flooding or dry.
Outside the city is the My Son ancient kingdom site of the Champa civilization,
a cradle of religious, intellectual and politcal life from the 4th to 15th centuries.
Unfortunately, during the American War many of the temples and buildings were destroyed.
