On my recent travels in Vietnam, I fell head over heels in love with Hoi An the moment I stepped off the bus and into its beautiful, bright streets. While the whole of Hoi An is magical, it was Hoi An Ancient Town that completely captured my heart with its rustic yellow-walled shops and vibrant decorations strung about. As you’re walking through the Ancient Town, you’ll likely stumble upon a handful of quaint temples. Before you actually make it into the Ancient Town, there’s a good chance you’ll be asked to pay an “entrance fee”. Here’s how to not get conned like the dozens of other tourists I saw.
