Hoi An Shopping Guide

In the charming Ancient Town, even Hoi An shopping counts as a cultural experience! From the 15th to 19th centuries, the city welcomed foreign traders who came by boat to this riverside port to purchase silk, spices, gems, and ceramics. Nowadays, in the same atmospheric shophouses, tourists will find these items and many more to fill their bags when shopping in Hoi An. 

1. Hoi An Central Market

Hoi An Central Market

This Hoi An shopping destination offers tourists an unmissable shopping experience. It is the place where you are immersed in the smell of fragrant herbs and spices, and the vibrant colors of Vietnamese traditional silk. The market is busy throughout the day. In the morning, it is crowded with local buyers diving in to get the best fish. Inside the market, there are many tied ducks and chickens ready for sale in front of the row of Vietnamese cooking ingredients. For Asian silk and textiles, you can find these products on the east side of the market. But to fully immerse in this market, besides the famous activities of Hoi An nightlife, “lost” in the Hoi An central market under the twinkling lantern light is an extremely worthwhile experience for foreign tourists.
