Tips for saving your money in Hoi An

Hoi An is a peaceful and ancient town and it is a must-see place in Quang Nam province. Before traveling to Hoi An, you should know some tips to save your money in Hoi An.

Cooking lessons – If you enjoy the food at a certain restaurant, ask for cooking lessons. These are often cheaper than the cooking schools advertised by your hotel, hostel, or found on the Internet.

Camp on Cham Island – If you’re heading to Cham Island on a diving trip, it’s possible to save money on accommodation by camping on the beach.

Eat across the riverHoi An is split in two by a small river. One side is very touristy, while the other side is very local. Move out of the main center and across the river for better food and drink deals as the locals here never get as many customers as the main city area.

Shop around – There are hundreds of tailors in Hoi An. If you’re having clothing made, check prices with a few places before settling on one.

Skip the SIM Card – Hoi An is highly connected to WiFi.  You can hook into WiFi in just about every hotel, shop, restaurant, and convenience store for free!

Eat at the market – Market stalls are some of the cheapest food you can find.  Think about it, they have almost no overhead, so a meal will cost you 20,000-40,000 VND.  There are a variety of dishes to choose from and places to eat.

Rent a bicycle – Bikes can be rented for 20,000-30,000 VND per day.  This is a great way to leisurely explore the quaint city.

Don’t be afraid of taxis – Metered taxis in this country are affordable.  If you are moving around town at night, this is a good, safe, cheap option (especially if you’re splitting the cost with a few others).  A 30-minute ride will set you back around 130,000 VND. The best taxi companies are Mai Linh and Vinasun.
