Hoi An – ancient city by night

Filed under: travel — Tags: — mat @ 3:22 am

When the day was over and the moon came out we started our walk into the ancient city. It was really nice to see, the small lanes were illuminated by candles and lanterns. No vehicles except bicycles were allowed. No horns, no noise. But a lot of pedestrians :)

On mostly each corner local artists and performers demonstrated and showed either local folk songs or art. We watched for a while a demonstration of VoViNam which is the traditional vietnamese martial art.

Others were playing a traditional kind of chinese chess in public and small kids tried to sell candles wrapped in rice paper for a better karma. Well I wasn´t willing to pay 100.000 Dong for my karma. We went back to the Old Garden restaurant which is in a small lane but you may find the menu at the beginning of these lane. It´s close to the coffee shop at the junction Tran Hung Dao and Ngyuen Hue street. We ordered a lot of tasty dishes and beverages as well and paid just 6 € for all of it. Amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant coz of it´s coffee and food.

Topic for today is rent a bike, go to the beach , pickup shoes and clothes and reconfirm our next bus to Na Trang. Again 12 hrs ride *sigh* but we´re traveller, aren´t we ? :)
