Colourful lanterns and tailor-made clothing in Hoi An
December 25th, X-mas day! After 15 hours on the bus, I finaly reached Hoi An. Hoi An is known for the more than 200 tailorshops in town. I noticed that quite well. Just arrived in the hostel and Tuya and I were already ‘grabbed’ by a lady that wanted to show us her shop. And we went along! And had some clothes made there! I guess I gave myself a big X-mas present! Of course we had our doubts..would it be made well, how would the finish be? Luckely it turned all well. I even had extra trousers made after the first order 😉 Of course Hoi An has more to offer than custom-made clothes and shoes. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has over 2000 year of history. Hoi An Ancien Town with its winding lanes, Chinese Temples and ancient tea houses is definitely worth exploring. Do it on foot or hire a bike.
And go back when it gets dark! The extremely colourful Chinese lanterns gave me the feeling of being back in ancient China.
My 4 days in Hoi An were pretty much filled with fittings, 3000 Dong draught beer, strolling around his ancien town and eating a lot. No complains however!
