Day 11 Lantern making tour Hoi An Garden Villa
Lanterns are an essential part of the cityscape of Hoi An, and on the day of the walk you will try your hand at the art of making a lantern.

First stop on your guided tour gives you an introduction story behind the lantern, their design and colors.
The locals believe it means luck, happiness and prosperity when hanging the lanterns in front of their houses.

Traditionally, the lantern was made in silk and had more or less the same shape all together. But over time, the craftsmen became more skilled and proficient, and both the forms and the materials developed. As a result, today you can experience lanterns in many colors and shapes hanging around in Hoi An.

With your own lantern as a souvenir you can continue towards lunch. Subsequently, there is a visit to Tra Que village. Here, many different kinds of vegetables are grown, not least the slightly more tasteful of the kind used extensively in the local dishes in Hoi An
