Hoi An’s calm water beaches make it a perfect location for children and families. And, as many bar/restaurants dot the shores it’s easy to stagger a few steps for a delicious meal or sink a cold one or two in your shaded deckchair as the sea rolls in nearby.
There are restaurants with pool tables, pubs with swimming pools, cafes with playgrounds and resorts with kids’ clubs. Try the basket boats (the round ones), snorkeling, cycling or one of the many child-friendly tours.
For something different, ride a buffalo, do a cooking class or take a ride towards Laos and the Ho Chi Minh Trail in a jeep. And, if you’re looking for theme parks, ice-skating or cinemas, venture a small distance out of Hoi An and there are several at your fingertips.
