Early in the morning when the sun has just risen, when the old town rises to wake up, preparing for a long and bustling day is a moment not to be missed.
See the peaceful and fresh morning street.
It would be great if it was a beautiful morning, with a little early sunshine, women wearing conical hats, busy with street vendors, bicycles crossing the street, old houses still closed, no shops. , not crowded… a very idyllic scene. All you need to do is step out into the street at about 5-6 am and fill your lungs with that fresh air.
Hoi An Quang Noodles.
After going for a walk, need to recharge for the new day. A Phuong banh mi at 2B Phan Chu Trinh or Madame Khanh bread at 135 Tran Cao Van with scrumptious meat, ham, pate, raw vegetables and aromatic sauce will provide enough energy for the new day. These two banh mi shops are extremely delicious and famous – not only in Hoi An but all over the world. Average price is 20,000 VND/piece.
Bring bread to the familiar sidewalk cafe of Hoi An people, eat, drink, and watch the peaceful Hoai River in the early morning. Hoi An people often drink a cup of coffee on the sidewalk near the Hoai River before motorbikes are banned. A delicious cup of coffee for a long day of alertness. Two delicious sidewalk cafes, crowded in the morning, are Ms. Thao’s, right around the bend from the Japanese bridge to the Hoi Bridge, which is an attractive destination for young people, while the aunt’s shop is opposite Ms. Thao’s, right at the beginning of the area. Night food is the favorite restaurant of middle-aged people.
To learn about the life and culture of Hoi An people, there is nothing like visiting the ancient houses and spiritual and social works here. Cantonese and Fujian Assembly Halls, Tan Ky, Phung Hung, Quan Thang ancient houses, Cau pagoda, Ong pagoda, Tran family church, Sa Huynh museum… are typical ancient works in Hoi street. However, to visit these places, you need to buy tickets, there are two types of tickets: 80,000 VND to visit 3 sites and 120,000 VND to visit 5 sites.
What to do at noon and in the afternoon in Hoi An?
Refuel to continue the afternoon with chicken rice. This is also one of the famous dishes in Hoi An. The most famous chicken rice is Ba Muoi rice at 22 Phan Chau Trinh.
In the summer, we can rent a bicycle or motorbike to go to Cua Dai and An Bang beaches to bathe. Or simply lie down under the green coconut trees, white sand beach.
The most interesting afternoon in Hoi An is eating snacks by the roadside. Snacks that are both delicious and cheap are hard to resist such as: grilled meat rolls with rice paper (5000 VND / 1 skewers), fried rolls (5,000 VND / piece), banh beo (4000 VND / cup), pork skin cakes (2,000 VND / piece). /pc), bean curd tea, tao pho (10,000 VND/cup)… etc. are sold along major streets such as Tran Phu, Nguyen Thai Hoc. A culinary paradise for those with a foodie soul.
