The afternoon is the perfect time of day to see some of the famous sights within Hoi An. But first, before you set out on foot to discover the city, we recommend that you grab a Banh Mi sandwich to fuel you for the afternoon. Than Banh Mi Sandwich in Hoi An is both famous and different from a sandwich that you will get in other parts of Vietnam. The bread and fillings are unique to the region and are a great first insight into local cuisine. We highly recommend Madam Khanh’s stand, who has been dubbed the Banh Mi Queen in Hoi An
