Hoi An an ancient town in central Vietnam was one of the most important trading ports in Southeast Asia and an important center of cultural exchange between Europe and the Orient.

On the 14th day of every lunar month, the old town of Hoi An switches off its lights and closes to motorised traffic, the old town is transformed by flickering candlelight, multi-coloured lanterns and hoards of visitors who’ve come to see the full moon lantern festival.

In 1999 it received the status of World Heritage site by UNESCO
