Kanchanaburi OR Hoi An???
19th July, 2007
I have an option of extending my time in Thailand by a day or two, or extending my time in Vietnam. Any suggestions on which place is nicer / more interesting between Kanchanaburi (thailand) OR Hoi An (Vietnam)??

Hoi An is a beautiful town, I would recommend there. Interesting town on the river with a great beach close by. There is also some good short excursions such as Cham Island, Marble Mountain if you have the time.

I say definitely Kanchanaburi. Hoi An is beautiful, but lacks anything real or with any grit for an interesyed traveller. Its merely a colourful Asian city like Malacca, Chinatown in Singapore, Georgetown in Penang, with inflated Western prices in cafes serving pinot grigios. I found it lke a tourist trap.
Kanchanaburi on the other hand is laid back, with an amazing night market selling local delights, historical sights and the lovely river. Rent a moped and explore, I did that for about a week using Kanchanaburi as a base!

I'd also lean towards Kanchanaburi -- so much to do there.
