Descrição

You will leave the port aboard a coach for the one-hour drive along Provincial Route 603 to Ho An. On your way you will be able to admire the typical countryside of central Vietnam. Following the arrival in Hoi An, you will visit the Thanh Ha pottery village, three kilometers west of the town. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries this village was renowned for its earthenware, and its products, such as bricks, roof and floor tiles, are featured in the old buildings of Hoi An. You will then take a boat cruise down the Thu Bon River to visit the small Hoi An Museum of History and Culture. The museum was built on the former site of a Quan Cong temple and houses many exhibits documenting the foundation, development and decline of the ancient town of Hoi An. Your next stop will be the Assembly Hall of the Fujian Chinese Congregation, founded in 1697 by the Fujian Chinese merchants of Hoi An as a venue for community meetings. This temple is architecturally unique and boasts artistic decorations and beautiful statues. Your tour will continue with a visit to the Japanese Covered Bridge, built in 1593 by the Japanese Community of Hoi An to link their neighborhood to the Chinese quarter across the river. The bridge was roofed so that it would shelter pedestrians from both rain and sun. Over the centuries the ornamentation of the bridge has remained faithful to the original Japanese design. Your next stop will be one of the old houses in Hoi An, Nguyen Tran Ancient House or Ky House. This particular house was built almost two centuries ago as the home of a Vietnamese merchant and its design illustrates how the local architecture was influenced by Chinese and Japanese styles. You will then head to a Hoi An craft workshop, where you will have the opportunity to see various traditional local handicrafts, such as carpentry, ceramics, mat weaving, embroidery, paper lanterns, conical palm hats, etc. Finally, your coach will follow the same route back to Da Nang City.
