Every year Vietnam attracts thousands of tourists, one of its popular places is Hoi An (or as it used to be called – Faifo). This city has played an important strategic and military role for many years, as Faifo served as a significant port in the southeast of Asia.
Luckily the Vietnam War didn't destroy Hio An, as it happened to many other cities, and nowadays it can offer us plenty of magnificent and fascinating buildings and historic places, created long time ago. The city is rich in talented artists, so you have a great opportunity to buy there an original piece of art. And who knows, maybe, some time will pass and your purchase will cost a fortune. Hio An might be the only city, where you can find that specific mixture of the architectural styles from Japan and China.
This city is also worth visiting because of its delicious cuisine. Another curious fact is that from Hio An Christianity started its expansion in Vietnam. And on the whole, this city has the reputation of one of the most picturesque in the country.
