Description Hoi An is a small city located in the central region of Viet Nam, covering an area of 60 km2. It has two World Heritage Sites recognized by UNESCO: Hoi An Ancient Town (“an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century”; UNESCO, 2018) and Cham Islands Biosphere Reserve. In its day, Hoi An was the most prosperous trading port in Dang Trong, southern Viet Nam, and famous throughout Southeast Asia. Not only traders from all over the country but also a large number of foreign merchants from China, Macao, Japan, Manila, Malacca, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, as well as Western countries such as France, Portugal, and Italy traveled across the sea to Hoi An to conduct business. Here, merchants could easily sell and purchase goods per their requirements, especially ceramic products.
