The Tran Family chapel is another interesting house to visit. The book of ancestors gives fascinating glimspe of history and I envy them for having such a book that dates back to early 19th century.
A short walk further down the road lead us into the market. It was teaming with activity as fishermen unload their morning catch onto the docks, fish mongers selling the catch, as well as all manner of produce by the various sellers. Watch out for touts and beggars though, they can be persistent.
More history at the Museum of History and Culture, followed by a visit to the Cantonese Assemly Hall. We ended our walking tour at one of the shops selling Vietnamese silk. You can easily tailor a garment and collect it on the same day. One particular shop that was recommended in the Lonely planet had a sign proclaiming thus we felt they had gotten arrogant with it though and walked out when we were literally ignored.

As you can tell, a highlight of Hoi An is the delicious local cuisine, but there's more to it than that! Nearby are some amazing old Cham ruins called My Son which are worth the hour or so trip. And Hoi An itself is great to wander around for a day or two - the architecture is colorful and bright, and the river gives the town a special fishing village type of charm.
