Each month, when there is a full moon, locals and tourists can enjoy a colorful lantern festival in the Vietnamese town of Hoi An.
This traditional festival, also known as the “full moon celebration”, is part of the Buddhist calendar and is a way for locals to honor their ancestors and family. During the days of celebration, people hang colorful lanterns at the front of their homes as well as on the streets. They also place them on the river, covering it with floating lanterns.
If you plan to visit Vietnam, schedule a trip to Hoi An during a full moon to enjoy an unmissable cultural event.
