 11:46 23/08/2023

The people of Hoi An love eating out, in particular street food. And this passion for the latter isn't just any random habit, but in fact history-based. In the 16th -19th centuries, Hoi An was one of Asia's primary trading ports. As such, the place was frequently visited by foreign traders from such countries as China, Holland, Portugal, Japan, and practically all over the world. Since these merchants had to eat especially after a whole day of working along the waterside, the locals thought of selling food to these traders without them having to leave their place of business. Thus, the birth of street food.
