14. Hoi An, Vietnam
Hoi An is a destination that’s known for its scenic Old Town area, and the amazing shopping prospects. There are tons of tailors in the city, and a cheap souvenir can be anything from a hand-printed beach sarong to a bespoke three-piece suit.
The food in Hoi An is plentiful and cheap, and many restaurants realized long ago that by offering diners the option to eat beachside, they could attract more customers. While you’re in Hoi An, you can also opt for a day trip to nearby Cham Island, a popular diving destination.
