Hoi An Lantern Festival

Every month when the moon is at its brightest, the residents of Hoi An gather for this sacred event. It is a time to honor ancestors, reflect on life and to focus on Buddha’s teachings. Colorful lanterns are lit with candles and placed in the Hoi An River to bring good fortune and happiness. Enjoy this romantic setting as you relax on the riverbank and listen to local musicians playing haunting melodies from bamboo flutes.
