Hoi An to open night tours next year

2009-12-22 (GMT + 7)

Hoi An Town in the central province of Quang Nam will open at night from January 2, 2010, offering tours of several sightseeing sites along with food and drink services.

During night trips, visitors can choose places they want to go to instead of being restricted to places listed on tickets, as happens during the day, local officials said.

While certain places like ancient houses and club-houses won’t open at night, tourists will still have chance to enjoy lantern nights, traditional music performances and food and drinks at a floating market on the Hoai River.

They can also join folk games and learn to make lanterns that are set adrift on the river.

The night trips at the town, recognized as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999, are expected to cost VND40,000 per person for Vietnamese citizens and VND90,000 each for foreigners.
