When coming to Hoi An, visitors not only have the opportunity to discover a world’s cultural heritage site (with a set of architectural works forming an antique town as a lively museum) but also to enjoy fresh air in a biosphere reserve and experience pleasant local life with local people in eco-villages.
Sailing downstream on the Hoai River, about 5 km from the center of Hoi An Old Town, there is an endless nipa palm forest of hundreds of hectares called “Nipa palm forest”. This place currently preserves historical architectural heritage of special value, highlights heroic in time of war and is a unique ecological site with flooded forest and charming landscape.
Visiting the nipa palm forest, visitors will be amazed with a vast and interminable forest and low-roof-houses made from nipa palm.
