Hoi An is pretty damn beautiful at all times of the day. Even in the midday heat, you can be struck dumb by the green of the rice fields. At 6 am, An Bang is both stunning và great fun – everyone’s doing some size of exercise and there’s a tangible feeling of anticipation in the air.

And of course, there are the lanterns in the Old Town at night. Wandering down Tran Phu, dodging the cyclos lớn get that perfect pic – well, it’s all part of the Hoi An experience! As is taking in the pretty lights on all those boats floating around the Thu Bon river – whether you find yourself in one or you’re watching from dry land.

But in my opinion, Hoi An is at its most glorious at sunset. That’s when the heat of the day subsides, the light fades và this ancient town comes to lớn life.

And because Hidden shares great Hoi An secrets with its readers, I thought I’d let you in on some of my favourite places too!




Your Guide lớn the Best Sunset Spots in Hoi An

I’ll cover some of my favourite drink spots, a few hidden scenic gems và the đứng top places khổng lồ get golden-lit Hoi An photos.

First things first. Sunset in Hoi An changes – obviously – depending on what time of the year you choose lớn visit.

But whatever time it’s at, you can be guaranteed that this is when the town starts lớn liven up. So, pretty much the opposite of what we’re used khổng lồ in the West. Instead of winding down và heading inside, sundown is when locals flock outdoors. Emerging from wherever they’ve napped during the heat, lớn socialise over strong coffees or several Red Bulls.

Note: Be prepared for the cloud. This is one of the most important Hoi An tips khổng lồ note… well, when it comes to lớn chasing sunset, at least! Because no matter how gorgeous the sunset is set to lớn be or how scenic your surroundings – you’ll often be duped by what I điện thoại tư vấn the Hoi An Cloud (HAC). Seemingly popping out of nowhere, it arrives more often than you’d like: swallowing up the sun in its greyness before it has a chance to lớn sink gracefully into the horizon. Sigh.

Still, if you manage to get a HAC-free day, there are plenty of amazing spots khổng lồ catch sunset, in và around the Old Town.



3. Small Cua dẻo Bridge

If you’re taking the “scenic route” to Cua dẻo beach, ie through the village itself, you’ll pass over a small bridge right before you get to lớn the morning market on your right. I swim at Cua dẻo often & teach yin yoga on the beach just before sunset, so I go over this bridge pretty regularly. & if I happen lớn be crossing at the right moment, I’ll be treated to a postcard-perfect view. Fishing boats swaying gently in the foreground, as a pink sky opens up beyond.

I’ve also experienced the magic of this sunset from Được – the seafood restaurant that’s just over the bridge. Unsurprisingly, the fish here is incredibly fresh (and actually really good value). So it’s a gorgeous place to sit for sunset, enjoying great food and a more local vibe.

Blink & you might miss it.

Photographing the Sunset in Hoi An

So where should you go lớn take those dreamy Hoi An photos at sunset? Well, in my opinion, the vị trí cao nhất ones from this list are: Cua dai bridge, Cô Hoa’s place và that rice fields dam. Why? Well, they’re incredibly beautiful for starters. They’re a little out of the way for another – although Cô Hoa’s isn’t so peaceful once Mr Cocktail Cart gets going! and they all give you a chance to meet & chat with locals, there to lớn savour the same beauty as you.

My personal favourite is Cô Hoa’s – that’s where I’ll always dash if it looks like a good sunset. Where I arrange to lớn meet friends or where I’ll bring people who’ve just arrived in town. A lot of the time that dastardly cloud will get in the way. But at least I have the refreshing drinks and good company khổng lồ fall back on!

In terms of my original challenge – finding the best sunset spot in Hoi An – it’s hard to lớn say. Because it’s such a subjective thing. Some people want the entire scene khổng lồ themselves, others lượt thích a bit of hustle & bustle. Some want lớn savour sunset with a cold one, others prefer khổng lồ focus on the photography. In many cases, it depends on what mood you’re in!

My advice? Try them all out và see which place you prefer! Apologies to Hidden if I’ve failed my challenge but those are six of my favourite sunset spots. I’ll leave it up khổng lồ Hidden’s readers lớn pick their personal best!
