Located around 30 minutes from tourist city Da Nang, one of the hottest travel destinations among Koreans, Hoi An used to be a busy international commercial port from the 16th to 19th centuries, as merchant ships from many different countries passed by there.

Since 2004, the ancient town has pioneered pedestrian-friendly streets, with most hotels, restaurants and homestay facilities offering bike rental services.

Motorbikes and cars are banned from the town center for large parts of the day – from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., making bicycles the most ideal choice for foreigners to explore the town.

and Gili Trawangan in Indonesia.
