Hoi An has been long considered the most atmospheric and delightful town in Vietnam. Since the graceful and historic city was a major port for trading and transportation and home to the Japanese, Portuguese, Dutch, French, and Chinese traders, Hoi An has not only featured different types of historical sites, but also a unique culinary heritage representing creative fusion of cooking techniques and sophisticated combination between three key ingredients: rice, meat and exotic herbs & vegetables.  Upon a visit to Hoi An, visitors will be captivated by a wealth of spectacular Hoi An culinary delicacies with the diverse collection of Hoi An signature dishes including Mi Quang (Quang-style noodle); Cao Lau; Hoi An shredded chicken and local herb salad; Banh Dap (smashed rice pancakes), and Banh Mi Hoi An (Vietnamese sandwich), the most delicious bread in the world.
