5 Things You Didn’t Know About Hoi An!

As you stroll through the charming streets of Hoi An, Vietnam, you’ll notice a sense of wonder in the air – as all five senses spark!

At this point, you’ll be hungry to learn all the beguiling facts about the city and the riveting history behind your Karma Song Hoai experiences…

That’s where we come in! To help prepare you for your Vietnamese adventure, here are five things you may not know about Hoi An yet…

Hoi An has a very small population: In 2021 the population was recorded as a mere 32,757 people, meaning it was 80th on the list of Vietnam’s cities.

Wondering why there’s a monkey and a dog on either side of the iconic Japanese Bridge? Locals have suggested that this is most probably because construction began in the year of the dog and ended in the year of the monkey – sacred symbols of the culture!

Cao Lau is a dish you can’t try anywhere else in the world other than Hoi An! The recipe’s history states the noodle bowl can only be made with water from the ancient Ba Le well, and dough from the nearby Cham Islands – with its secret ingredients.

Hoi An was awarded the title of one of the greatest car-free towns in the world – when you visit, notice how the majority of the streets have been reserved for pedestrians!

Here you’ll discover the world’s 3rd oldest Chinatown: Originating in the 1600s, the Chinese trading port began when silk and leather traders from Fujian Province arrived in Hoi An.

There’s still time to grab this month’s Hot Deal before November 30th!
