What to Expect
Discover the history of Hoi An on a 4-hour sightseeing tour and see some of the beautfully-preserved buildings of the UNESCO World Heritage Old Town. Then, get in touch with your creative side at a lantern making workshop.

The tour will provide an insight into life in Hoi An with visits to all the major attractions, such as the Hoi An Museum, where black and white photos reveal what the city looked like in the early 20th century. Wander down atmospheric traffic-free streets to see the 3 ancient houses, and the Chinese influenced Assembly Hall with its pastel dragon statues and peaceful courtyard.

Go to the Japanese Covered Bridge in the Old Town, where you will also find dozens of artisan workshops. It’s at one of these that you will join a lantern craftsman to learn about the traditional techniques of making Hoi An’s iconic lanterns.
