Overview of festivals in Hoi An

The locals in Hoi An are very religious. During the most important festivals, the New moon and the full Moon festivals, locals become vegetarian. You can’t find a restaurant with a free table. Before the full moon day, there is a Full moon festival. It’s great festival with beautiful colored lanterns all over Hoi An. You can’t see any street lights, no cars or motorbikes, just beautiful colored lanterns. The whole atmosphere is a thing you need to experience when you are visiting Hoi An. It’s planned every full moon, so you can’t miss it!

Deena Peter

Photo Tour: Golden Classics and Hidden Gems

Peter took us on a customized tour of Prague. He was flexible and we covered the entire city. After the tour ended, he recommended a restaurant and dined with us. His food and beer recommendations were excellent. I would definitely recommend Peter.
