Hoi An after Sundown, Vietnam
The city would light up at night with lanterns while people from everywhere gather and mingle along the river. It is one of the most photogenic and laid back city in Vietnam. Around 16th century when the first Chineses came settled in and brought along their Chinese lanterns to sooth their homesick. And from then on, the beautiful lanterns find its way into every home in Hoian. They are hung at front of houses, decorated along the riverside, lined crisscross on the streets and setup in restaurants and shops. The lanterns come with many different colours, shapes and sizes but all blend amazingly with the ancient surrounding to make an integral part of Hoian.
