Located on the East Sea in Vietnam is the City of Hoi An, a cultural jewel that showcases hundreds of years of the area’s changing demographic, culture, and art. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hoi An was home to the largest port harbor in all of Asia during the 1st century A.D. Hoi An, since its earliest days, has been the unmatched center of the worldwide spice trade, and still is a major player in the world spice trade.
One of the world’s oldest canal-based villages, the canals of Hoi An wind through the city, and are used for transport in and around the city, as well as being used for relaxing boat rides to view tour the city.
