During the full moon in April each year the streets in the old town of Hoi An are closed so that locals and tourists alike can roam around and gaze at the brightly coloured, hand-made lanterns which are displayed in shop fronts.
During the full moon of the lunar calendar the streets of Hoi An are lit by traditional, hand-made lanterns in various colours. At this time of the year visitors have the opportunity to see the inhabitants of Hoi An dressed in traditional costume. On the banks of the Hoai River young men and women exchange folk songs. The lunar moon festival is an enchanting festival to watch.
Hoi An is an ideal spot to stop for a few days, shopping in the market or having a silk dress or suit fitted. There are many restaurants, old houses, craft shops and art galleries.
