Since 2004, the pedestrian zone project, approved by the Hoi An People’s Committee, has been a unique tourism cultural product of the locality. It received the support of local people because of the actual benefit to the community, contributing to economic and tourism development of Hoi An.
Last year, travel site Lonely Planet dubbed Hoi An a global food paradise while American travel website TripAdvisor chose the town as one of the top 10 Asian food destinations in 2011. Hoi An attracted 2.3 million tourists last year, up more than 18 percent from 2015.
