Wander through the labyrinth of vendors selling fresh fish, meat, and produce, as well as souvenirs and clothing. This is where the locals shop, so expect a lot of activity in some cramped quarters, especially if you arrive for early-bird specials. Several food stalls sell quick bites like soup, omelets, baguettes, and cao lau—a regional dish made with noodles, pork, and greens that can only be found in Hoi An. This place will give you a good taste of a typical
Vietnamese market. Be sure to ask the price of food before you eat, and don't be afraid to barter for trinkets.
Nguyen Hue and Tran Phu Sts., Hoi An, Vietnam
