Cycling in Hoi AnThe guide was updated:
The Hoi An Old Town is closed off to all motorised traffic (including motorbikes) on most days, between 8.30 and 11.00 and then again 15.00 to 21.30, which means streets can be comfortably navigated by cyclists and pedestrians. Many hotels and guest houses offer bike rental services (or even complimentary bicycle use in some cases), but multiple bike rental shops operate throughout town as well. Prices are normally very reasonable and can be as low as 1 USD per day (depending on the bike).
Single-gear bikes will suffice for cycling through town, but mountain bikes are recommended for those who wish to venture into the country side. While locals will often be seen riding without helmets on, we recommend asking for one at your bike hire provider to ensure safety.
