Sightseeing in and around Hoi An with Exceptional People

I did a bit of research with the help of Xuan Tu as to what to do and see in Hoi An. She was extremely helpful and we mapped out 2 days of tours, unfortunately she was unable to do the Tour with us due to a family crisis. The first day we were picked up by Ty Len and Lam for a full day tour of Hoi An which incorporated a local ferry ride to Cam Kim Island, cycling around Kim Bong Village, meeting a local family who taught us how to make Rice paper, visiting the old dockyard to see boat builders in action, also a family who weaves sleeping mats where the mother had prepared the most delicious sweet corn dessert!! Also visited a family of wood carvers producing the most beautiful artwork. On our return to Hoi An we had lunch at the most famous Banh Mi place in Hoi An, Banh Mi Phuong – amazing!! Visited lots of culturally significant sites around the town, enjoyed the best coffee in a very delightful coffee shop in a garden setting and ended up at Mr. Son’s restaurant, which was an experience in itself!! Our guides Ty Len and Lam were the two most delightful people you would want to spend the day with, chatty, happy, funny, absolutely lovely and we highly recommend them to anyone interested in a fun day out. We were all very sad at the end of the day to have to say farewell. Our second day was spent with Anthony who took us to visit the Lady Buddha, toured Marble Mountain and visited My Son Sanctuary as well as a local market in Danang. He was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant person as well and a good day was had by all. I can highly recommend Xuan Tu and her company, she is extremely professional in her approach and it is such a pity I did not get to meet her personally. Maybe next time…… Thank you guys for making our 2 days so memorable!
