Fodor's Expert Review An Hoi Night Lantern Market

Hoi An Market/Bazaar

As dusk falls, the area directly opposite the walking bridge connecting the Old Town to An Hoi Peninsula is lit by what seems to be a thousand silk lanterns, spilling out from little wooden chalets that wouldn't look out of place at a European Christmas market. In the daytime you can come here to watch the lanterns being crafted from wafts of silk and bamboo, but it's not until night when the lantern sellers are joined by a whole host of mobile craft, jewelry, and souvenir stalls, that this area really comes alive. The night market has the biggest selection of lanterns in town and you can even design your own. While the stalls in between are not particularly notable, you can pick up cute little trinkets for very reasonable prices.
