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!

Maximilian Judy

Taipei Street Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

Judy hat sich toll auf unsere Wünsche vorbereitet und hat uns geholfen eine die authentische Küche Taiwans kennenzulernen. Wir haben viel gegessen und probiert. Als wir nicht mehr konnten hat uns noch Judy mit Tipps und Empfehlungen für die weitere Reise versorgt. Dadurch waren wir für weitere Nachtmarktbesuche gewappnet.
Vielen Dank an Judy!!

We can heartily recommend a tour with Tony. He‘s a great sororyteller and he knows everything about culture and history of his country. he gave us so many unforgettable insights we would not have managed to discover on our own. he also was very flexible to make further wishes come true like to hit a wall or buy a natural moskito spray. in one word: great.
