Full description
The ancient town of Hoi An transforms into what’s also known as lantern town at night. This evening market is filled with beautiful handmade arts and crafts, but the real charm lies in the colorful lanterns that adorn all the buildings and streets. You will be picked up at your hotel, and transferred to Nguyen Hoang pier to jump on a boat. You can capture some unforgettable shots as your boat passes through the Hoai River.  You will be offered some finger food while cruising through the romantic Hoai river. Treat yourself to the spectacle of twinkling evening lights which rival the stars overhead. Back to Hoi An, and you'll head to Hoi An Water Puppet Theater to enjoy the show. Water puppetry is a folk art form associated with the long history of wet rice civilization of Vietnam. You will be treated to stories of everyday life in Vietnam, fishing and boat races, as well as fairies and dragons. After the show, you will have dinner at a lovely restaurant located on the bank of the Hoai River.
