day 839

From Lonely Planet Vietnam 2007:

"... a highlight of any trips to Vietnam, Hoi An is a town oozing charm and history, having largely escaped the destruction of successive wars... Known as Faifo to Western traders, from the 17th to 19th centuries it was one of South-east Asia's major international ports. Vietnamese ships and sailors based here sailed all-around Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia... Perhaps more thank any other places in Vietnam, Hoi An retains a sense of history that envelops you as you explore it..."
