  • Description


    Our family has lived in Vietnam for 8 years, the last five in the magnificent town of Hoi An. We have a website that provides info to tourists and expats living here on everything there is to know about Hoi An. It's been live since March 2016.

    About Us
    The family is Stuart , Sharon and daughters Bi Bi (17) and Arlie (11). Stuart has an extensive background in publishing, including more than two decades in Australia (10 years as the head of a publishing company) and another (also in Australia) for several years after that. He has also written two books. Sharon has written plays, screenplays and books, been a communications teacher for over a decade and has extensive experience in sales, marketing and customer service. Bi Bi and Arlie attend school in Hoi An.

    What we Do
    Our website aims to do what most travel websites can't do -- get beneath the surface and explore what's on offer through the people who live there, not through reviewers passing through. It also provides an ongoing service for expats -- everything from renting houses to issues of cultural awareness to visa regulations and health services. Meanwhile tourists are given in-depth detail about restaurants, attractions, cultural icons, shopping, tours, hotels, special events and much more.

    Hoi An, in Vietnam, is regularly voted one of the top 10 tourist destinations in the world with its magnificent beaches, charming and beautifully preserved Old Town, and bucolic life wherever you go in this delta wonderland.

    This is a wonderful opportunity to engage with the Vietnamese community and the many nationalities that visit Hoi An or live there as expats. Our website is involved in all facets of life in Hoi An, thus the experience will be rich and varied. It is also an opportunity to be further trained by two professionals with many years of publishing, writing and marketing experience. We frequently find that are workaways stay for far longer than they intended. This is due to the comfort we provide, the beauty of Hoi An and its people and the training and experience they gain.

    What else ...

    Hoi An is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. It is also one the world's least expensive. It has many attractions for tourists but it's also very easy to get off the beaten track and explore Vietnamese life and culture of the area away from the bus loads of visitors.

    Beach life and river life are at your doorstep. Even the mountainous regions near the Laos border can be reached after a short drive and the cuisine is justly famous throughout the world and very inexpensive.

    Da Nang international airport which is 30 minutes away has very cheap flights to various parts of Asia.

    As we are a website many tours, restaurants or spas or tailors ask us to review them. Therefore our workaways get to do and enjoy lots of free meals, massages etc...
