1. A healthy lifestyle, close to nature
Long stretches of white sand beaches, immense rice fields, the poetic Thu Bon River, fresh air and green roads – these all paint a picture of the peaceful life that everyone desires.
2. An ideal and safe environment for raising children
Hoi An is also attractive to many parents as it is a great place to raise children. The beaches are always a favourite for most families here. In Hoi An, people also offer different activities for children, such as cooking classes, lantern-making workshops, surfing, etc. Public parks, amusement parks, family-friendly cafes and beach clubs and resorts have affordable prices. Many families shared that they left big cities and moved to Hoi An because they wanted their children to have a complete childhood.
Ms Huong moved her family from Hanoi to Hoi An more than three years ago, and she is delighted with her decision. “The joys my family have here are immeasurable,” she said. “My children have endless summer days. They have sleepovers at their friends’ houses and invite them to my house to cook and play. Since we live in a village, children are free to ride around, without the danger of heavy traffic. When they get to the beach, they love it. I’m a bit concerned that they have too much vitamin D. Their class at school is small, so they are close to their peers, and the parents know each other very well.”
Education is the primary concern of families when intending to move. Hoi An offers exemplary education options, just as they do in big cities.
Ms Katy decided to move with her whole family to Hoi An from France three years ago, sharing: “The learning environment in Hoi An is great for my children. My family has been here many times before, and the kids love it. We moved to Hoi An because we wanted our children to be free to explore the outside world and at the same time to study and nurture their talents. Currently, all three children are studying at Hoi An International School , and I am satisfied with the quality of education that the school provides.”
3. Convenient social security and a suitable standard of living
Hoi An is a fun and friendly environment. Unlike big cities, the cost of living here is affordable, and transportation is also very convenient. For shopping, grocery stores, clean food stores, mini supermarkets and traditional markets meet your shopping needs for essential items. If necessary, families can shop at supermarkets and large shopping centres in Da Nang, only a half an hour’s drive away. Hospitals, medical facilities and administrative centres are all easily accessible within the city area.
4. Diverse, rich cultural and social activities
Hoi An has so many activities for its residents and always makes them feel happy and satisfied. Walking around the Old Quarter gives people a feeling of peace, lightness and serenity. Community activities also take place very actively and regularly. On weekends, there are often markets to visit, like Tan Thanh Market or Hoi An Green Market, workshops on making recycled crafts and art, and culture exchange programs with cultures from around the world.
The wave of migration to Hoi An is increasing, making this place very different. Here exists different cultures, Vietnamese culture, featuring nostalgia and rural-living, balanced with vibrant and colourful cultures of international communities, brought in by families from different countries and continents.
Looking at the changes of Hoi An in recent years, we can say that this is not only the most livable place in Vietnam but also, in the world. Settling in Hoi An promises to become a more and more popular trend.
