Hoi An

Indisputably one of Vietnam's most atmospheric destinations, Hoi An contains a World Heritage-listed old town boasting over 2,000 years of culture and history.
Take a break from the city and head to Cua Dai Beach and The Marble Mountains. Mỹ Sơn and The Old House of Phun Hung will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to My Khe Beach in Da Nang (about 36 minutes away). There's still lots to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, enjoy the sand and surf at An Bang Beach, and snap pictures at Japanese Covered Bridge.

For more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Hoi An online travel route planner.

Boise, USA to Hoi An is an approximately 27-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 14 hours traveling from Boise to Hoi An.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

While most Southeast Asian countries have at least one booming metropolis, none seem to bustle nearly throughout like Vietnam does. While busy locals zoom about on motorbikes, visitors fill their Vietnam vacations with a mix of cultural sightseeing and exploring the landscape. Big cities and towns boast colonial architecture, open-air markets, outstanding spa complexes, and modern restaurants. The country also features over 3,200 km (2,000 mi) of coastline dotted with sandy bays that attract scuba divers and kitesurfers. Away from busy urban centers, a tour of Vietnam reveals a rural landscape of lush rice paddies, jagged mountain peaks, and timeless villages unspoiled by the outside world.
