Hoi An shines in 2017

Think of an idyllic image of Asia, what do comes to mind? Perhaps it’s steaming bowls of noodle soup, meandering snake-like rivers criss-crossing verdant jungle, colourful markets, and smiling and friendly people...

Well, that pretty much sums up Vietnam to a tee.

Karma Group loves Vietnam so much we've just opened our brand new retreat, Karma Cây Tre, in the world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage listed Hoi An.

Here's 3 reasons to pack your bags and book your Vietnamese odyssey with us today...

Hoi An's lantern festivals shine every full moon

lantern festivals

Hoi An's old town – a blend of Vietnamese, French and Japanese influences – is a perfect place to be any time of year, but the absolute peak time to visit is around the full moon. Electricity is shut off and the streets are closed to traffic while the people of Hoi An (and thousands of international guests) congregate to light flickering candles and majestic silk lanterns in honour of their ancestors.

Key dates in the next 6-8 months include the 8th June, 7th July, 5th August, 4th September, 3rd October, 2nd November and 1st December. Our vacation experts can help you time your visit perfectly, right down to a spectacular lantern-lit dinner!

Chow down on authentic home-style Vietnamese cuisine

Vietnamese cuisine

Given the myriad of influences that have influenced Hoi An over the centuries it's no wonder the local food scene is so spectacular.

Looking for something traditional? Try Mango Mango restaurant, which serves up Vietnamese staples with consistently excellent quality. For something more upmarket don't miss Morning Glory, which delights diners with upmarket street food served amid stylish decor on a terrace overlooking Hoi An's Old Town.

Even a walk down Hoi An's quaint streets will yield exceedingly fresh and delicious results!

Soak up the rays at An Bang Beach

An Bang Beach

An Bang beach is Hoi An's new 'it' beachside hangout. The sparkling sea and almost-white sands are a major drawcard for anyone who likes sun, sand and surf.

Whether it's the string of quality eateries or lazing under a palm umbrella that tickles your fancy, you'll be spoilt for choice and will never have to fight for a view. Try your hand at kite-surfing, snorkel in the shallows or down a cold beer along the shoreline – An Bang is a beachcombers' dream.
