Hoi An Overview
The ancient town of Hoi An, 30 km south of Da Nang, lies on the banks of the Thu Bon River. It was occupied by early western traders and became one of the major trading centers of Southeast Asia in the 16th century.
 
Hoi An has a distinct Chinese atmosphere with low, tile-roofed houses and narrow streets; the original structure of some of these streets still remains almost intact. All the houses were made of rare wood, decorated with lacquered boards and panels engraved with Chinese characters. As a result,  Hoi An surely becomes a must-see stop during Vietnam cultural tour packages.
 
Hoi An History
Due to its favorable geographical characteristics, this area had existed and developed the belated Sa Huynh culture for over 2000 years, The result of archaeological research in four burial relics (An Bang, Hau Xa I, Hau Xa II, Xuan Lam) and 5 living places (Hau Xa I, boiling, Dong Na, Thanh Chiem, Bau Da ), were various types of typical burial jar with production tools, life tools, excellent stone/ ceramic/glass/ metal jewelries ... were taken from the ground that asserted the flourishing period of the Sa Huynh culture. 
 
In particular, the discovery of two Chinese coins (Pentateuch, Wang Mang), the Western Han Dynasty-style iron artifacts, the shadow of Dong Son, Oc Eo culture, or jewelries with refined processing technique in the excavated hole proved an interesting thing that in early AD, foreign trade was very first – built in Hoi An.
 
Under the kingdom of Champa (9-10 century), named Lam Ap Pho, Hoi An was a port in developing which attracting merchants from Arab, Persia, China to trade and exchange goods. According to many ancient bibliographies, there was a long time that Champa port - Lam Ap Pho played an important role in creating the prosperity of  Tra Kieu – the first capital of the Champa Kingdom and My Son sanctuary.
 
With the ruins of Champa towers, wells and statues (the dancer Thien Tien Gandhara, the wealth god Kubera, the elephant god ...) and pieces of Chinese ceramics, Vietnam, the Middle East from the 2nd-14th century are taken up from the ground. It is demonstrated an assumption that there was a Lam Ap Pho (the Cham Pa) before Hoi An (the Dai Viet) at Champa port in its flourishing period.

Hoi An Travel Tips
As a famous destination in Vietnam tour packages, Hoi An is well known as “shopping heaven” where you can find tailor shops everywhere on the streets. In fact, the tailors are almost similar and most of them should be fine; however, many tourists do not have a good experience and end up paying for clothing that they will not wear.
 
Please keep in mind that most recommendations that you get from hotels and restaurants are based on relationships rather than on the quality of the tailor. And the highest success rates come from playing it safe - copying clothes that you really like or customizing clothes found as a sample in the shop windows. With a new design or more expensive items, try with more reputable (and often expensive) tailors.
