Wondering where to stay in Hoi An, Vietnam? 

Picture this: You step out of your quaint, sunny bed and breakfast to the bright green countryside. You’re about to take a gentle bike ride, lazily waving wildflowers and rice fields flashing past, into the charming ancient town down the street.

You may take a walk on the leafy river, pick up fresh fruit for lunch, or soak in some history at one of the small museums.

This is Hoi An, Vietnam.

Just over a mile from Pacific ocean beaches and the 16th French, Vietnamese, Japanese fusion Ancient Lantern Town, Hoi An Rustic Villa is a dreamy boutique bed and breakfast with just 10 rooms. At just $30 a night, this is hands down the best B&B I’ve ever stayed in— check it out below!
