Hoi An people are very proud of their handmade lanterns. To make lanterns, bamboo is supposed to be old, soaked in water for 10 days to prevent termines, then dried and cut into pieces depending on the size of the lanterns. The cloth must be silk or typical cloth. It should be tough enough not to tear and the workers need techniques to wrap fabric at the right angles. It took 4 days from cutting the bamboo to finishing the 2 lanterns with decoration full of love and passion that the people who make lanterns want to convey.

The night the time for romantic, lyrical and sparkling color, lanterns are hung everywhere in the ancient town. It arouses the feeling of nostalgia. It feels as if the busy commercial port has turned up in the light of lanterns, flower lights and under the shadow of the poetic ancient houses. Especially in full moon nights, the lanterns are hung in the shimmering moonlight in front of each house. The flower lamps slowly floating on the Hoai River. With no sound of any transportation, no electric light, the light of lanterns is more splendid in the surprise of thousands of tourists to vietnam travel.
