Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Most guesthouses and hotels in Hoi An are within easy walking distance of the central historic quarter but relatively few are within its immediate confines, and these ones are very overpriced. While central Hoi An is home to some tasteful options for midrange tourists, backpackers seeking to pay US$6-8 will need to bunk down a good 10-minute walk from the river. The town already sees too many package tours and prices reflect this -- in low season you may be able to bargain your lodgings down a little, but in high season, you'll struggle.

Cua Dai Street
Cua Dai Street runs for around 6km from Hoi An town out to the long Cua Dai Beach. It isn't really a great location — it's a bit of a hike from town, and rather far from the beach — but if you're planning on hiring a bike it's not such a bad place to be.

Cua Dai Beach
Cua Dai Beach runs all the way up the coast until it eventually becomes China Beach, on the coast from Da Nang. With its rough-grained, yellow-grey sand and proximity to nightspots on and near the beach, Cua Dai has long been popular with daytrippers from Hoi An. There are, however, a growing selection of flash resorts springing up along the beach catering to those who need a few days to really relax.
