Hoi An is known for clothing and shoes, with more than 600 shops catering to a very limited pool of tourists. Walk some of the streets outside the old town and you will see open-fronted workshops operating all hours where the clothes are made.

The nearest airport is in [[Da Nang]] which has domestic connections from [[Hanoi]], [[Ho Chi Minh City]] and [[Hue]] with Vietnam Airlines and VietJet Air and some international flights from [[Bangkok]], [[Singapore]] [[Siem Reap]], [[Hong Kong]],  [[Cambodia]] (for [[Angkor Wat]]) and charter flights from [[China]].

A private car from Danang airport to Hoi An costs about USD22. Try with [https://huracars.com/tour/da-nang-airport-to-hoi-an-transfer/ '''Hoian Private Car'''] is one of the most reliable companies in Hoi An. This is one occasion where haggling to set a fixed price is cheaper than going by the meter, but good luck with this - despite clear signs everywhere listing fixed price fares to destinations including Hoi An (should be 400,000 dong, July 2015: this can be negotiated to a 320k fixed price if you appear to walk off a few times) most drivers seem unwilling to discuss a fixed price. Meters will typically run to around 450,000 dong. The Hoi An airport transfer is highly recommended, the cost is comparable with a taxi (about USD20) but a better car and professional service. Air-conditioned Minibus-Taxis cost USD5 per person (there are no minibuses in airport, you should go first to the city). The ride takes about 45min.
