Things to Do | Show and Tour Bookings

Of course, when it comes to tours, if you fancy taking the DIY route, you can rent a bicycle and take off on your own. See our ‘Cycling to An Bang Beach: Scenic Route’‘Cam Kim Cycle Tour’, and the ‘Alternative Hoi An Cycle Tour’ pages to get you started on your own two-wheeled adventures.

Then there’s the Thanh Ha Pottery Village, a museum with ever-changing exhibits and history, pottery-making workshops, a temple, and hands-on pottery-making experiences where the costs are insignificant.

Or do you want to try your hand at lantern-making? For just 7 USD (162,000 USD) you can learn how to do it and keep the lantern to boot!

Further afield there’s the Tam Thanh Mural Village – a stunning collection of over 100 murals painted on the walls of the local buildings near the provincial capital, Tam Ky. Totally free aside from getting there.

Bursting with life and cultural interest, Hoi An is hard to beat. Wander anywhere – across the rice fields, down the back lanes or by the river or beach – and you’re bound to stumble on something special.
