Vietnam-0983 - Hoi An

PLEASE, no multi invitations (none is better) in your comments. Thanks.

 

Waterfront of Hoi An on the Thu Bon River. From the 15th to 19th centuries it was one of South-East Asia's most important trading ports. The Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese traded silk, porcelain and spices. Walking along the riverfront it is easy to imagine a time when the wharf was crowded with sailing ships from all over the world. Hoi An, Vietnam
