Boat candle trip

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.

Temple in Hoi An
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

Candles Candles? Boat Boat!
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!
