Many hotels and resorts offer high discounts during this time so you can experience 5-Star services at a cheaper price.
“We visited Hoi An in August 2015, and Palm Garden is the best place for a family vacation. The pool is excellent and the staff is very helpful. They offer many entertainment activities for guests, and performances at night. The restaurants offer delicious and diverse food. The children’s play area has many interesting activities. We will definitely return. One small tip is not to choose rooms by the main road, because they are very loud especially at night,” said Charlotte0519 from Manchester, United Kingdom on TripAdvisor.
