It’s really difficult to take a photograph that hasn’t already been taken in Hoi An. It’s probably the most popular tourist destination in all of Vietnam. And with pretty good reason. Though it’s never really been my favorite place (and I’ve certainly vented about it before), it is starting to grow on me–just the ever slightest little bit. This last trip, back in June, was maybe by far my favorite. Maybe I’ve just come to expect certain annoyances, or maybe the town really is getting better. Who knows. Maybe I just spent less time in the ancient town this time around, and thereby less time being harassed by motorbike drivers, overnight tailors, excitable tour operators, and the like. Anyway. Here are some photographs from the travel story I was working on.
