Once our lunch is finished, we will transport you to Hoi An city, the World Heritage Site located along Thu Bon River. This ancient town has remained unchanged for centuries. Hoi An used to be the international trading port of Champa Kingdom where they imported and exported wood, gold, silk. At that time, Hoi An had trade fairs that attracted lots of merchants from Holland, Portugal, Japan and China to come with their goods. After the river became shallow, Da Nang replaced Hoi An in 18th century.

Hoi An is also about shopping, so you will also have about 1 hour to explore the old town on your own andshop for those “must have” souvenirs.
On the way back to the ship, we will stop at My Khe Beach (the R&R beach where US marines landed in and stayed in during Viet Nam War) and the famous Da Nang Dragon Bridge, so you can take some beautiful photos to remind you of your visit.

We were picked up at the cruise port for a full day tour. Stopped at China beach, sure wish I had a surfboard and more time because the waves were pumping! At Marble Mountain, the guides bought the tickets and came along with us to narrate and show us the highlights. They also accompanied us into Hoi An, the old town. The tour was well organized and efficient, with good coordination between guide and driver to facilitate timely pickups. Overall, a very enjoyable trip! I will definitely use them again when I come back to go surfing!
