One of the great pleasures of any visit to Hoi An is strolling along the beautiful streets of the old town at night under the flickering lights of the many beautiful lanterns. These simple yet colorful lanterns are both part of Hoi An culture and Hoi An today. We offer you a tour to a traditional Hoi An handicraft village to make some lanterns.
We spend the morning for a walking tour around this enchanting port town. Follow the narrow lanes lined with centuries-old houses influenced by Chinese, Japanese, French and European architectures and visit its numerous places of interest: the 400-year old Japanese Covered Bridge, the Phuc Kien Assembly Halls, the local fish market …
Around the town we can see a numerous art galleries and tailor shops, where you among others can get some made-to-order clothes if you like. Afterwards we will take lunch at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon we will be visiting a local lantern craftsman. Here you will get a brief introduction to the history, shape, and color of the lanterns as well as the many stages of making them. After that you can make your own lantern, decorate, pack and keep it as a souvenir during the time in Hoian.
At the end of the tour we will return to your hotel, after which the tours ends.
