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!

Amsterdam Like a Local: Private Bike Tour

My family of 5 spend several hours with Anna on a north side bike tour. She showed us the artsy district, a crane that is now a hotel, lots of street art and some local architecture that only exists due to the wind mills. She is knowledgeable of the local history, has great English and does a great family photo (just ask). We had a great time an highly recommend Anna.
