    Built in 1885 by Chinese merchants from Guangdong province, Quang Trieu Cantonese Assembly Hall was designed as a place where Chinese fishermen and traders could come together to exchange goods or simply relax and socialize for a while before returning to work. In addition, Quang Trieu (like the other assembly halls in Hoi An) contained an altar room where Cantonese traders could worship their gods and goddesses.

  • The Japanese Bridge

    These days, the Japanese Bridge has become a Hoi An's signature, but turn back into the 17th century, when the bridge was built, it simply serves as a way for the Japanese community who lived on the other side of the stream to reach the Chinese quarter. The Japanese Bridge has been restored many times over the years but has mostly stayed true to the original whose simple design stands in contrast to the generously embellished Chinese temples nearby.

  • Old House of Tan Ky

    Located at 101 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, in the Old Quarter of Hoi An Ancient Town, Tan Ky Old house is an almost perfect example of an 18th merchant’s residence in this major commercial port town. The name Tan Ky, meaning “Progress Shop”, was given to the house by the second generation to express the owner’s wish for a prosperous business. In spite of the decline in business of the town and the huge devastation of annual floods, seven generations of the family have continuously strived to keep the house in good condition. Therefore though it’s not the oldest, Tan Ky is the most well-preserved in Hoi An.

  • Phuc Kien Assembly Hall

    Located at the same street as Quang Trieu, Phuc Kien Fujian Assembly Hall is the largest and most famous of the assembly halls in Hoi An’s Ancient Town. Originally the site of a Vietnamese pagoda dedicated to Buddha, the land was later sold in the mid-1700s to the largest group of Chinese traders in Hoi An, the Fujian, and Phuc Kien Fujian Assembly Hall was built in its place. Phuc Kien honors three goddesses, all with extraordinary talents in relation to the sea, from being able to spot ships from thousands of miles away to protect fishermen out at sea.

  • Quan Cong Temple - Quan Am Pagoda

    Connected and thus considered a single site as far as ticket stubs go, Quan Cong Temple and Quan Am Pagoda are both relatively small places of worship, especially in comparison to the size of Hoi An’s assembly halls. Quan Cong Temple was built in 1653 in honor of Quan Cong, a prominent Chinese general known for his courage, loyalty, and integrity. His likeness has been preserved in statue-form, and if you make an offering to him, the same person who takes your ticket will ring a bronze bell for you. The adjoining Quan Am Pagoda, dedicated to the Chinese goddess of mercy and compassion, can be accessed by following the passage behind the temple.
