I arrived in Hoi An, dazed and confused off an overnight bus, why had they dropped us in a car park outside of town? Luckily we managed to grab a lift to the office and ring the hotel for a pick up. After that it was love at first site, even taking the main road to our hotel this town just felt beautiful. I was eager to get in to the town centre, check out the famous tailoring shops and wander along the river. By day the sun shone around the glorious town, bouncing off the pavement and lighting everything up. By night the town came alive in colourful lanterns, the nightly market was my favourite for lanterns but all along the river was beautiful too. We had a fantastic few days in Hoi An taking a photo tour and getting tailored clothes made. Editing these photos to show you how beautiful this town is has only made me want to be back there…
That very first photo and then the ones of the river at night are especially gorgeous. I never knew Hoi An was so pretty!
I, of course, also fell in love with Hoi An. It’s just so stunning – the buildings, the clothes, the food, the cafes. It’s kind of an enchanting spell. At the same time I also felt a bit ensnared by the place too.. It saps your money on beautiful tailoring and stresses you out trying to sort out and barter for all of those things.
