Hoi An is known for its beautiful lantern scene, tailored clothing, and delicious food, but it also boasts beautiful ripe rice fields at this time of the year.

Around mid-year, the roads leading to Hoi An in central Vietnam are blanketed with the golden hue of vast ripe paddy fields.

For those seeking scenic views, Hai Ba Trung Street, Vo Chi Cong Street, and the pathway leading from Ba Le Market to the renowned Cam Thanh nipa palm forest stand out as excellent destinations.

The ripe rice season has become a trademark of Hoi An tourism, with local tour companies welcoming the most visitors at this time of the year. 

Many villas and resorts have sprung up near the paddy fields, capitalizing on the distinctive vantage point to offer their guests an unparalleled viewing experience.

On their journey to explore the old town, tourists only need to cycle for 10-15 minutes and their eyes will be treated with the stunning yet peaceful beauty of the fields.
