The whole town is somewhat of an outdoor art gallery – centuries-old tea houses painted in a distinctive golden hue, lantern-lit alleyways, quiet canals, colorful bridges, markets, peaceful locals going about their day, rickshaw drivers taking curious tourists around…it’s hard not to fall in love with Hoi An.
