Afternoon at the Cua Dai beach, about 6km from the old town.The former harbour town of the Champa people at the estuary of the Thu Bon river was an important Vietnamesetrading centre in the 16th and 17th centuries, where Chinese from various provinces as well as Japanese, Dutch andIndians settled down. During this period of the China trade, the town was called Hai Pho (Seaside Town) inVietnamese. During the French colonial period (1883 - 1945), it was called Faifo. Originally Hai Pho was a divided town,because across the "Japanese Bridge", it used to be the Japanese settlement (16th - 17th century). The bridge (ChuaCau) is a unique covered structure built by the Japanese, the only known covered bridge with a Buddhist pagodaattached to one side.The town is known to the French and Spanish as Faifo, and by similar names in Portuguese and Dutch. A number oftheories have been put forth as to the origin of this name. Some scholars have suggested that it comes from the word"Hai pho" meaning "sea town", while others have said that it seems more likely to simply be a shortening of Hoi Anpho, "the town of Hoi An", to "Hoi pho" which became "Faifo".In 1999, the old town was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific andCultural Organization) as a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port of the 15th to 19th centuries,whose buildings display a unique blend of local and foreign influences.Today, Hoi An is still a small city, but it attracts a fair number of tourists, also being a well established place on thebackpacker trail.
