Participate in this course and let us show you how to make this icon of Hoi An, all in the warm atmosphere of Hoang Le's studio, under his instruction and that of students who have been learning Hoang during many years.
High in light, the old Hoi An at nightfall still charms but in an exceptional way with its thousand lanterns. Rare are those who do not adore the sparkling cute streets in this fairy light.
A nocturnal stroll along the Hoai River just to contemplate the wonderful city animated by folk songs and dances, lanterns shining on the water including the 14th day of the lunar month with the full moon, will be a unique experience. You will enjoy unforgettable moments wandering the night market of Hoi An while discovering memories full of charm.
