Hoi An and scams

2013 December, The Long Trip - Vietnam, Hoi An

It was a short distance from the bus stop to the city center - around 1,5 km. It was easy to find a nice accommodation here. 
It is an amazing place, the city center is by the river and in the evening all houses and restaurants are lid.
In the old town there you need to watch out for one scam - maybe more, but I only spotted one. On a free map which could be found in shops and restaurants is information that simply walking the streets is FREE. You need to buy a ticket only if you want to visit listed attractions. Unfortunately, near the Japanese bridge, security people almost forced you to buy a ticket. I had a map and I showed them what was written there - they allowed me to go. But many people bought a ticket or gave up further sightseeing. Inside are old buildings and shops.
Apart of that Hoi An is an excellent place to visit and has a lot to offer.

They are happy when taking a picture and then you need pay for it:-)
