Hoi An - one of world’s best nightlife destinations

The UK magazine Rough Guides has named Hoi An ancient town - a world cultural heritage site in the central province of Quang Nam as one of the most interesting places in the world to experience life at night.

According to Director of the Hoi An Centre for Culture and Sports Vo Phung, Hoi An’s full moon festival was ranked 15th out of the 20 unforgettable things to do at night by the magazine.

Every month on the 14th day of the lunar calendar, the town switches off its street lights while hanging multi-coloured lanterns. Visitors can take a stroll on the cobbled streets along the Thu Bon River where splendid flower garlands and coloured lanterns are floated.

Last year, Hoi An ancient town won the second best city for tourists in Asia after Kyoto, Japan, by the world’s premier travel magazine Conde Nast Traveller.

It is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Most of the buildings there are aligned along narrow lanes and include many pagodas and temples.
