A rest-stop with a tourist information center and photo and painting exhibitions has opened in Hoi An town.

In the two-story building, paintings of Hoi An created by local and foreign artists are on display on the ground floor.

The first floor has an exhibition of photos of Hoi An in the past and now.

Le Thi Thu Thuy of the Hoi An Center for Cultural Heritage Management and Preservation said an office to provide information and brochures to tourists also functions at the rest stop, which is at 57 Tran Phu Street.

According to town authorities, the place was opened to coincide with the 14th anniversary of Hoi An being recognized as a world heritage site by UNESCO.

Other cultural activities too were organized to mark the event.

In October one of the world's leading travel magazines, Condé Nast Traveler, ranked Hoi An as the second most popular city in Asia after Japan's Kyoto based on a readers' poll.

The town attracted more than 2.6 million tourists in the first nine months of the year, up 19.3 percent year-on-year.
