Hoi An Ancient Town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. This is a view of the city at night – lots of colorful lanterns line the streets. You can buy floating paper lanterns to place in the river. There are shops, rickshaws and cute little restaurants all along the waterway. We loved this town at night with the lighting that gave it a magical feel. During the day it seemed like a different town altogether, but it was fun to take our rental bikes (1 dollar for a whole day) and cruise around town and down to the beach.
