 Top 4 Tailor you must try! 

Treat yourself with beautiful outfits

Beside visiting awesome spots like Chinese bridgege pagoda, night market food and especially, Hoi An visitors should never miss the opportunity to have their outfits specially made, from a two-piece suit to evening or wedding dress, the list goes on

Since ancient times, Hoi An artisans have been handed down by their father how to weave silk from silkworms. Special fabrics will create beautiful and very graceful and flexible dresses. Hoi An has speciality in Ao Dai, representing the elegance of Vietnamese ladies. The preferable fabrics are silk, linen, with sequins, hand-drawings or embroidered details, etc. 

 

For me as a woman and living in Hoi An, I always want to try silk Ao Dai for the place where I work with light colors represents the charm and romance of Hoi An Ancient Town. Sometimes, I spice it up with some floral dresses for summer or a charming dress for a night date. At meetings with partners, I prefer elegant suits and skirts. Here are top five tailor shops recommended by Maison Fleur Hoi An.

“I went to the main BeBe location in Hoi An and was looked after by Rose to have a variety of dresses, skirts and tops made. Rose did a wonderful job intaking my request and I felt like she truly understood what I was requesting with my outfits. Everything turned out beautifully.

There are many places that people do in their free time to relax in Hoi An . Among a long list of various places, there is one I'm interested in, that is An Bang Beach. It is a beautiful 4km stretch of sand north of its neighboring beach, Cua Dai.

Since the recent erosion at Cua Dai Beach, resulting in the loss of sand and a few businesses, more locals and tourists now flock to An Bang Beach. This venue is an ideal destination for you to visit near Hoi An ancient town. It is famous for its pristine natural beauty and relaxing vibe. An Bang beach is at its best beauty during the sunrise and the sunset. This beach is perfect for sunbathing and enjoying beach activities The parking fees is 5,000 for motobike and 30,000 for car.

From my experience, March-September is the most ideal period to visit this place. Blue sea, cool air, little rain, you can go to the beach in the early morning and watch the sunset in the afternoon. The road to An Bang beach is very and inviting, so you can choose bicycles, motorbikes or cars to come there. An Bang always has a special place in visitors' heart with its laid-back restaurants, late-night bars, water sport activities and live music. There are not only restaurants serving delicious seafood and Hoi An specialties, cool pub & bar like The Deck House and The Shore Club are also hotseller with beautiful beach view and varied drink menu.

My friends, shall we go?

Sailing along Thu Bon River

353427880_641550784502914_1868418175623360020_n.jpg

Located in Hoi An town, Quang Nam Province, Thu Bon River is often called the “Mother River” as it brings about rich layers of alluvial soil and bestows an abundance of fish on local fishermen.

 

Considered as a vigorous flow of Quang Nam Da Nang, Thu Bon River winds through jagged mountains in the Western Quang Nam and pours into fertile fields. On its way, the river has left numerous marks on local areas.

In the morning , from Hoi An old town, visitors usually explore Thu Bon river by boat or participate in an established cruise. Sitting on a boat, you will be attracted by the bustle of craft villages along the river’s bank such as Thanh Ha for pottery, Phuoc Kieu for bronze casting, Tra Que for vegetables, Ma Chau for silk and Phu Chiem for rice paper. Besides, visitors also can enjoy some local markets to deeply experience rural life and friendly people here.

 

A boat can carry up to about five passengers, and each ride typically takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Consider avoiding the roads altogether and taking in the city from the water. 

If visitors enjoy the boat ride in the evening, they can release colorful lanterns onto the calm river water. They will be given a lantern made from colored paper with a candle in the middle to release onto the water while making a wish.

 Thu Bon river has a profound spiritual value for both locals and tourists. The river has an ancient, gentle but profound beauty that makes visitors always want to learn and experience more in this river.

The price of a ticket is 150.000 -200.000.

Have fun with your voyage!

36 hours in Hoi An 

Imagine you are in my shoes, you only have 36 hours in Hoi An and you start to wonder where should you go. Here are some of my recommendations. 

353427880_641550784502914_1868418175623360020_n.jpg

First, I will check in with a lovely and elegant hotel with a very peaceful rice view like Maison Fleur, perhaps, I like the garden space and close to nature, so I will choose according to my preferences.

I know that the check in time is around 1pm to 2 pm but my flight arrived early that is fine, the receptionists here are very friendly, i can leave my luggage at reception desk and let’s get started. Most hotels offer  bicycle service so I will start the bike journey. It takes 10 minutes to Cam Thanh Village. tried the experience of a traditional boat a bamboo basket for just 195,000. Cam Thanh Basket boat tour and cooking class is a great way to have fun day out and relax and see the real Vietnam


Then I would love to continue the bicycle journey to An Bang beach, just about 2 km from Maison Fleur Luxury Hoi An, the beach is now before my eyes. I enjoyed my lunch at a very nice restaurant in An Bang beach 

I come back hotel and relax and  then continue Hoi An city and local food tour begin 3:30 pm to evening time with local guide with 990,000nvd/pax/tour. Walk to the ancient town , visit Phuc Kien Chinese Assembly Hall, Tan Ky Old House, Japanese Cover Bridge and Hoi An local Market, an amazing palace where you can observe the daily life of local people

Phuc Kien Chinese Assembly Hall.

And then walk to city to various food locates . A brief walk between the different food spots lets you soak in the city atmosphere while getting ready for the next tasty dish.

Banh Mi for Cuisine lover!

Imagine you are in my shoes, you only have 36 hours in Hoi An and you start to wonder where should you go. Here are some of my recommendations. 

Vietnamese cuisine is one of the most versatile cuisines in the world. It is characterized by the balance in the flavor of the food. Of all the delicious dishes, my favorite in Hoi An is Banh Mi . Madam Khanh banh mi Hoi An is loved and favored by many foreign tourists, often referred to as Madam Khanh Banh Mi or The Banh Mi Queen, with nearly 30 years of establishment and serving thousands of domestic and foreign tourists. In the early days of establishment, the bakery only had a simple trolley.

 

Still, thanks to his love of bread, the owner of The Banh Mi Queen tried to give life a variety of flavors, creating a fantastic feature if you have enjoyed it.

It is a unique French-Vietnamese sandwich that’s great for when you’re in need of a quick meal. Priced between VND 30,000and VND 40,000, it consists of a toasted baguette sandwich, pickled vegetables, pate, butter, soy sauce, cilantro, chillies, etc.

 

There are top five favourites, namely Mixed, Vegetarian, Pork & Ham, Chicken and Fried eggs . Its address is 115 Tran Cao Van, Minh An Ward, Hoi An, Quang Nam.

 

They open at 6:00am and close at 9:30pm. With its reputation, Banh mi is considered to be the essence of Vietnamese cuisine. It is a must-try that even the pickiest eaters can’t resist.
