Hoi An’s Architecture

Hoi An

Hoi An is such an ancient beautiful city with so many old houses. There are lots of houses with hundred of year of history and I was so glad to see them still in good condition. In the past five years, Hoi An has changed so much. Besides the old houses, so many hotels and new houses have been built which is ruining the charming old city to some extent.

Hoi An - Lanterns

There are about 20 resorts and a range of hundreds of hotels in this small city, not to mention thousands of cloth shops and restaurants. I wonder why these modern resorts get approval by the government? They don't seem to fit the character of the place.

Hoi An

I hope the government stop allowing people to build modern houses, and tries to maintain the old houses for our next generation to enjoy.

I like that last picture. It looks like an Asian Florida with all those palm trees.
