Hoi An ancient town cited among 10 World Famous Canals

 A street corner in Hoi An Town.

Hoi An ranked 4th in the list, just behind Venice in Italy, Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Bruges in Belgium.

The website reports “This fishing-village-turned-tourist-hotspot is situated on the coast of the South China Sea in Vietnam. Hoi An has been an international port from the 16th century although the serious shipping business has long since moved to the city of Danang. The heart of the city is still the Old Town, full of winding lanes and Chinese-styled shophouses. It is sometimes called the “Venice of Vietnambecause of the narrow canals that cut through part of the town.”
