Hội An, Vietnam Asia Tour Guide: Walter Harrison

Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a very unique place. Situated on the east coast on the South China Sea, it offers much in the way of charm and history. Between the 15th and the 19th Centuries, it was a trading port and much of the central part of the town is still well preserved to reflect this. A large number of the central streets are pedestrian traffic only. Most are narrow with houses, shops, cafes and bars as well as art galleries and studios.

During your stay here, apart from having time to explore and discover, you will be taken to the attractive Japanese Bridge, a covered bridge dating back to the Japanese settlers in the 16th and 17th Centuries. On one side is a Buddhist pagoda attached to the bridge.

Also visit a typical Chinese merchant’s home from the past.

Day 1: Danang Airport to Hoi An

Selamat datang! Welcome to Malaysia. Your adventure begins with an important welcome meeting at 6 pm. If you have any free time beforehand, why not get out and explore this intriguing city that was born between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea.

Modern-day ‘KK’ is a vibrant modern metropolis, having recovered from World War II bombings – the Sabah State Museum is a great place to immerse yourself in its backstory.

Accommodation: Hotel

Day 2: Half Day Hoi An Walking Tour – Afternoon

Leaving Kota Kinabalu behind, you’ll head for the hills and travel towards the unspoiled wilderness of the World Heritage-listed Mt Kinabalu National Park (approximately 3 hours). You will stop off en route at a local home in a  Dusun Village. Sample the local foods with a home cooked lunch to get some insight into what it’s like to live in a rural village.

Later you can stretch your legs and soak up the mountain scenery with a stroll through Mt Kinabalu National Park. There are many walking trails from which you can bird watch. The Mt Kinabalu Botanical Garden is an excellent showcase of the diverse plant life on the mountain, as flora from all over the park has been replanted here. Spend the night in a mountain lodge close by to the park in Kundasang.

Day 3: Hoi An to Danang Airport

You might wake to the call of a Bornean gibbon, or perhaps a hornbill. Enjoy an early morning cruise down the river, searching for more birds and wildlife. Keep an eye out for Long Tail Macaques and Pig Tail Macaques – your expert leader can tell you the difference. Later that morning, take a walk to Bilit Village, home to the local Orang Sungei community.

The Orang Sungei, which translates to ‘River People’, are one of Sabah’s many indigenous communities and are very hospitable with a diverse cultural heritage. Enjoy some free time in the afternoon before another river cruise to see wildlife along the riverbank. This final river cruise will be your last chance to photograph or simply marvel at your surrounds. Spend one more night in your lovely accommodation right in the heart of the jungle.

Accommodation: Lodge
