The best time to take pictures of the Old Quarter in Hội An on a Gray day? The late late afternoon and evening. Stroll with me through the small streets of Hội An.

Offerings on a wall in Hoi An
A random temple. In this temples you do not have to remove your shoes. Makes it more easy to visit them.

You have to pass the sales table before you can enter the temple
This temple is one of the places you can only visit with a visitors pass. That pass is 120.000 Dong and good for 5 of the 18 highlights of the Old Quarter if you are a foreigner. For locals it is cheaper but they can only visit 4 of the highlights. It is good for up to 18 days or 10 days or as long as you visit Hội An – nobody knows for sure. You will find more information on the pass on the the official web site

How much fun we had taking a tour of Hoi An in a bicycle rikscha
Because they did take my phone away and now I am bored like shit!

Waiting for the right price
All that waiting makes one tired

Restaurants along the water line
On the other side of the river they expand the shopping and dining of the Old Quarter
The Bridge to the other side
Yes you did see right – there is a Panda on the bridge!
Another restaurant – same same but different
A few years ago nobody would do that but now most of the people use the phone and some even the tablet
Candles Candles? Boat Boat!
So romantic – you get some candles from the girls that sell them and a boat for a few minutes to take a few pictures. And than back to shopping or not shopping again!
A more professional set up – a bit to much light if you ask me – would have done it with the candles only…
