Boat trip on Hoai River

When in Hoi An you should absolutely enjoy 20 minutes onboard a wooden boat in the evening, releasing lanterns in the Hoai River. Touristy yes, but still a lovely memory to add to your memory card!

Hoi An, our favorite place in Vietnam

I fell in love with Hoi An the second we arrived with the sleeper bus. It was something about the quietness and peacefulness that just got to me.

We arrived at 5am, an hour before our original arrival time. Once we had gotten our bags we jumped on the back of two scooters who took us to our accommodation for the next two nights, Zen Villa Hoi An.

This was actually where we learned to agree on the price before using a service such as tuk tuk, taxi or scooters. They tried to rip us of big time, charging us 5 times more than usual!

As mentioned above, we stayed at Zen Villa Hoi An. This ended up being my favorite hotel in Vietnam! The service was absolutely fantastic, and Mr. Thuong went out of his way to ensure we had a wonderful stay during our time. Big thanks to him! 💕

If you find yourself in Hoi An I can highly recommend this property ☺️ It is truly a wonderful place to stay!

Our day started with borrowing two super charming bicycles and venturing down to the old quarter looking for lunch. Once we had charged our batteries with yummy food, the shopping maraton started. I think we bought all of the Christmas gifts needed in Hoi An (and yes, there is a post office so that you may ship everything home).
