Ang Bang Beach at Hoi An

Ang Ban beach is one of two beautiful beaches located just a short bike ride from the centre of Hoi An.  The South China Sea waters are clean and refreshing, there’s usually a nice little body surfer’s shore break, the beach is clean and the umbrellas offer plenty of shade.  The Cham islands in the background can be visited on a low-cost day excursion from the Hoi An wharf.

Swim at An Bang beach, Hoi An taking comfort in the knowledge that the ever vigilant lifeguards are looking out for you. 

If lolling around on Ang Ban beach is all too hard , you can retreat to the bars and cafes overlooking the beach for a cold beer, a fresh coconut, some snacks or whatever else is on offer and takes your fancy.

Vietnam Trip 2012

Hoi An’s riverfront outdoor hawker stalls, cafes and restaurants where one can enjoy cool fruit juice, fresh coconuts, Vietnamese beer and delicious foods while gazing at passersby, fanned by the cooling river breezes. 

Dusk in Hoi An, serene and peaceful, viewed from a river boat cruising lazily along the river.

Visiting a Vietnamese herb and vegetable garden along the river in Hoi An, gardener in attendance.  The young herbs and mints are carefully weeded and nurtured

In the heat of the day, shops in Hoi An seem cool and inviting, shaded by lovely flowering plants, quite typical of Vietnamese shop fronts and houses. 

Fresh fruit vendor in the market in Hoi An.  Note the green oranges, dragon fruit, green mangoes and jambu nestling next to the more familiar apples, pears and grapes.
