To reach Hoi An from Hue, I caught the open tour bus.
On the way there was some beautiful scenery to see, especially from the Hai Van pass. I had views of the sea, Danang, mountains and valleys, and we passed through the longest tunnel in Vietnam, 12kms long.
Hoi An is easy to walk around and this is by far the best way to see it.
There are many Tailors here, of course Hoi An is famous for them, with most people having something made during their stay here.
People here really pester for you to buy..

Our next stop was the wood carving village, then past a fisherman who was throwing out his fishing net, (obviously paid to do this) then back to the dock and left to find our own way back to our hotels.
This was a good tour
Another tour I did was to Cham island.
This tour gave us a look around the major town on the Island, then we could go snorkeling before having lunch on a lovely secluded cove with only our small tour group there. After some R&R and back to Hoi an.
