Hội An, formerly known as Fai-Fo or Faifoo, is a city in Vietnam’s Quảng Nam Province and noted since 1999 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Old Town Hội An, the city’s historic district, is recognized as an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century, its buildings and street plan reflecting a unique blend of influences, indigenous and foreign. Prominent in the city’s old town, is its covered “Japanese Bridge” dating to the 16th-17th century.
