Fantastic Foto Friday: Getaway to Hoi An, Vietnam

Rice fields around Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An is known for the most instagrammable old town in Vietnam, the shops and restaurants and 30km of beaches stretching all the way to Da Nang. When I think of a relaxing getaway, my mind usually wanders to beaches or mountain vistas, but I find the huge rice fields, gently moving in the wind just as calming to look out over. You can explore the rice fields around Hoi An on a bicycle and getaway from the tourists in town in less than 10 minutes!
