It’s worthwhile to wake up early to visit the Hoi An fish market, located on the Thu Bon River, behind the main market area. When the fishing boats arrive and the local activity starts, the place is a real photographer delight. As with most markets in Asia, the best time to visit is around 6 – 7am each morning, when it’s at its busiest.
At that time, visitor can walk around the narrow streets in the early morning, when there’s nobody around to give the place it’s busy look. There are no tourists, no shops open. It‘s a new experience of Hoi An.
