Hoi An, Vietnam
World Heritage Site

September 2022

Situated on Vietnam's central coast, Hoi An was an ancient trading post cut through with canals.

A melting pot of cultures, styles and architecture. You can still see styles from ancient China, Japan and Vietnam as well as French Colonial styles.

PROJECT: TO Recreate the Beautiful Hoi An Waterfront


The Waterfront of Ancient Hoi An


You will fall in love with Hoi An's ambiance and beauty

The picturesque historic town of  Hoi An is located on the central Vietnamese coast.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a well preserved example of a trading post dating back to the 15th Century, showing signs of trading throughout Southeast Asia as well as the rest of the world. This melting pot of cultures shows architectural styles from ancient China, Japan, Vietnam as well as the later French Colonial styles.

Nowadays, Hoi An has become one of the top tourist attractions in Asia becoming famous for its custom tailor shops, hand made shoes and bags and art stores. Try your hand at making your own silk lantern, which you can see adorned almost everywhere throughout the town.

 The place sparkles at night!

 At night you can stroll through the wonderful markets set up in the old town, eat a delicious meal- Hoi An is famous for dishes such as Cau Lau and  White Rose Dumplings.

On weekends celebrate the lantern festival by taking a trip along the canal and releasing your own floating lantern while you make a wish.

This city on the central Vietnamese coast is a well-preserved example of the important Southeast Asian trading port it was from the 15th-19th centuries. Already a common stop for backpackers, it is becoming better known to tourists.


We gave one of our 3D design teams the task with recreating the waterfront of the beautiful ancient Vietnamese town of Hoi  An.

Going by photographs of the street and pictures of bicycles, cyclos, lanterns, tables, chairs and the sampans on the water  they were able to create a realistic representation of this picturesque historical location.

Using Maya and Substance Painter to replicate the buildings and complex textures showing age and water marks from constant flooding during the rainy season was the first stage, before bringing everything together in Unreal Engine 5
