Hoi An Nightlife Attractions
If you enjoy a picturesque setting, the Hoi An nightlife offers a unique experience in Vietnam. The city comes alive at night with lots of bars and restaurants illuminated by thousands of Chinese lanterns. It’s small scale, but very welcoming.
You should be aware that this is not a place for sex tourists, this is a place to take a lady that you are interested in spending a long-term future with.
If you are looking for short-term fun, the Vietnam nightlife scene is not the best place to find it. The costs are high and there are many scams. A better option is found at:

The Hoi An nightlife has a romantic charm that will make you want to relax, and soak up the scenery with a bottle of wine and some fine dining. However, if you are more of a 15 bottles of beer and a kebab sort of guy then you may be disappointed... unless you just feel like taking a break from the hard-core party scene.
My first general impression of Hoi An is a little confused, this is neither your typical Southeast Asia tourist destination nor a traditional Vietnamese town. It’s a sort of artificial mixture that somehow works, and the westerners who have visited the place do speak very highly of it, with many blown away at just how inviting and attractive the city is.
Geographically Hoi An is located in central Vietnam, more or less on the coast, and just a short taxi ride from Da Nang. If you are interested in central Vietnam, then you’ll definitely want to visit both of these two cities, so the close proximity is a big bonus.

Da Nang is the much larger of these two cities, with a population of almost 1.5m compared to a mere 120k in Hoi An, but there’s more than enough to see and do in Hoi An to keep you occupied for a week or two if you want to base your trip here.
